Contrary to popular belief, Norwalk is an extremely diverse town. One side of Norwalk could be completely different from the other side. Norwalk is NOT a ghetto, although certain parts of South Norwalk can be counted as a ghetto. Some of South Norwalk can be extremely culturally diverse and interesting.
East Norwalk is what you would think as a suburban part of Norwalk. It contains many suburban homes and schools convieniently located around the middle of the residential area.
Yes, there are traditional "preps" in Norwalk, but most of them are nouveau riche preps who go to country clubs such as Shore and Country and Shorehaven. Also, there are the various cliques.
define east nowalk as rich . all the
other parts to them and to some norwalkers
are ghetto. but there are other very wealthy parts of norwalk, not just eastnorwalk. but the sono apartments in
south norwalk are really expensive & gorgeous ! its like the soho of norwalk. south norwalk is historical, beautiful,
and is home to very expensive resturaunts
and shopping stores ! although there are some gehtto parts of south norwalk.as for west norwalk they have million dollar homes locked away in the woods. another thing
people assume is that all the black people
are poor & ghetto. which really annoys me
because im black , i live in east norwalk, and have been to shore and country club !
i live in a neighborhood when my neighbors
have a mercedes. im not stuck up or snobby. and im certainly not preppy just because i go to shore and country club. im showing ignorant people that there are upper middle class black people doing just fine in an equally wealthy norwalk. no other city in fairfield county is any better than norwalk. and im defending norwalk as a whole. yeah it is a wealthy town, it has its ghettos but then again there could be
a mansion up the street. norwalk is great, diverse town. youll never meet people like this as in say westport or new canaan.
out of towner: ohh so your rich , where from
fairfield county .
connecticun: yeahh; im from norwalk.
out of towner: thats not as wealthy as westport or somthing.
out of towner: trust me it is .
Also home to one of the worlds biggest (laugh) festivals, the Oyster Festival. The Oyster Festival is a fantastic experience. Allow me to facilitate your decision about attending. Whilst there, you can experience a variety of things,
1) The traditional gang fights resulting in police involvement and flinging of racial slurrs
2) Food poisoning was common in the people who ate chicken quesadillas at the Oyster Festival.
3) "Look at that faggot skydiver with his lame pink parachute."
4) "God damn it, the stupid shuttle bus is crowded."
5) "Hey, lets go into the art tent where we can buy absolute shit for a substantial amount of money."
6) "Are you kidding me, the fucking bumper cars are 3 tickets this year with tickets being $6.00 each? If we find the Z Score of the amount of energy consumed we find that these bastards are making a 540% profit on each customer."
7) "Whose going to buy 6 god damn Sobes to get a free T-shirt"
8) "Dude I saw Shawnton sporting a SIG P245 and a Code 3 Crosslock fold out behind the fun house."
Andrew's Field parking lot was fixated with proximity mines in order to decrease the number of gang members.
Tyrese - Yea that busta with the parachute got stuck in the tree
Max - We have to get back to the shuttle bus so I can open my car at Calf Pasture
Tony - What's in there?
Max - I left my M1903-A4 there.
Tony - What do you need a Springfield for?
Max - The gang shootout in 15 minutes, duh.
"Bathrooms at Calf Pasture in Norwalk are scarce, so I shit on the dock while a majority of the community overfished the waters.
Some "preps" go to country clubs. There's two in East Norwalk: Shorehaven and Shore and Country.
Shore and Country is mostly for "traditional" preps while Shorehaven is more for new preps.
I actually know a few teachers who go to Shore and Country. One is from Wilton, though. Wealthy people from all around go there.
Norwalk is moving in a green earth friendly city. I have noticed a lot of young couples moving into the area that bring canvas bags to the grocery stores, for example. It has adorable boutiques in the SoNo area, the best restaurants around and a few art galleries and design store have sprung up.
The Wall Street areas is starting to be redeveloped in spring of 08 and in those plans are some high end residential condos, retail shop, restaurants and open garden space. This area already has some great shops, restaurants and art galleries but a face lift is underway.
I would say Norwalk is a great place to live and a great investment if you are looking for a place that is convienatly located to Shops, restaurants, and NYC.
