Norwalk, a fiscally strong and vibrant city in southwestern Connecticut of Southern Fairfield County, USA, derives its name from its original occupants, the Norwake Indians. With a total population of 89,000, it holds the position of the sixth most densely populated city in the state over an expanse of 37 square miles. Unlike the rest of the bedroom communities in the county, this city is home to a more diverse population, including 15% African American, 35% Latin or Hispanic, and 5% Asians.
Because of its beauty and charm, it has become a favorite location of production houses for shooting famous films and television series. For Example, the 2009 drama film “Confessions of a Shopaholic” was filmed here in Washington Street. Filming of a rom-com film “Hope Spring,” released in 2012 starring Meryl Streep and Steve Carrell, also took place in the city of Norwalk.
On the other hand, the city has also acted as a battleground for the Battle of Norwalk during the Revolutionary War that resulted in the destruction and burning of almost half of the city. Then in 1853, the first unfortunate railway accident of the USA happened over the Norwalk river, causing the death of 48 humans. From the 19th century till today, it was an important railway stop on the way to New York and New Haven, resulting in its infrastructure development from improved public transport to banks, corporate centers, and local markets.
Norwalk is a coastal area that lies along the shore of Long Island Sound, Norwalk River, and Norwalk Island. Essentially a beach city with water covering almost one-third of its area and hilly streets overlooking the harbor. As a result, there is quite a lot of vegetation in the form of lush green parks, dense forests, and tree-lined streets. Norwalk is an entertainment hub for locals as well as visitors for accompanying small towns because of following fun-filled activities:
