George has the right idea. Perception of location is based on experience. It is all relative. Crime statistics, and demographic facts will enable you to make an informed decision based on your experiences. Let me know if you would like a tour of the area, especially if you are from out of town!

Renter:

You should pay a visit to the Norwalk Police Department and request any information they have regarding crime statistics in that area...get it straight from the "horse's mouth", rather than rely on second-hand knowledge or rumor.

Good luck.

The area near Brookside Elementary School is a lovely area and boarders Rowayton, one of Norwalk's nicest areas. That area is also close to everything with the convenience of shopping, restaurants, schools, I-95 and the train station.

Hope this helps.
