The City of Norwalk Connecticut is located along the coast of Long Island Sound in  Fairfield County. It is the sixth largest city in the state, and considered part of the New York City metropolitan area. The name "Norwalk" translates to "point of land"  from the Algonquian word "noyank".


Although the city is known primarily for oyster farming, Norwalk's 24 distinctive neighborhoods offer a variety of diversity.  Rowayton, Silvermine, Cranbury and SoNO to name a few. SoNo (South Norwalk) was originally a separate town and merged with the city in 1913. The area is known widely for its dedication to the arts,  varied nightlife, and array of restaurants. The Maritime Aquarium  and Imax theater are also located here, as well as the  Metro North train station.  The  New Haven and Danbury branch lines both run through Norwalk, which make this city an easy destination for anyone.

Rowayton is an upscale enclave, has its own train station as well, and hosts a few of the city's 15 marinas. At one time, Roton Point, Bayley Beach, and a part of the Wee Burn Country Club made up the Roton Point Amusement Park.  The city itself has 1800 berthing spots and 500 Harbor mooring locations, so many water enthusiasts choose to call Norwalk home.

The city also has a few museums, including the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum. This  62-room mansion is thought to be one of the oldest surviving Second Empire style country houses ever built in the country, and received  National Historic Landmark  status 40+ years ago. 

Norwalk Hospital is an acute care teaching hospital and is known for its expert Gastroenterology,  Nutrition, and  Pulmonary care.

 Major transportation arteries, such as Interstate 95, the  Route 7 Interchange and one of Connecticut's scenic roads, Merritt Parkway (Route 15), offer convenience to all commuters.
