Actually, no. Wolfpit Ave. is quite nice. It's a bit well traveled (busy), but there are many condo complexes on the street -- kind of like condo row, which doesn't make it bad at all. In fact it's quite near a lot of great areas for shopping and recreation.
Let me caution you, however. If you are looking at co-op prices when you say "cheap," keep in mind co-ops in CT are not like co-ops in NY. Most multi-unit complexes and hi-rises in CT are condominiums. Co-ops are less popular and harder to sell. In fact, there are many lenders who will not finance co-ops because they consider them too risky.
If you are considering co-ops because the low price is appealing, the first question you should ask is, what % of the units are rented. If the number is more than 25%, run for the hills.
I hope this helps.
Good luck hunting.

I recently moved to Norwalk (About 4 years ago) from NH. My wife and I purchased 1/2 of a splt duplex which is condo'd. It has worked out very well for us. If you would like to chat about neighbor hoods, towns, options, (the fact that my wife and I had our first child and are thinking of renting or selling our place ;-) ) feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to answer quesions. This from someione who isn't a realtor!
To my original quesiton, I am not keen on the $1,000 common charges, no matter what percentage is tax-deductible. Wolfpit Ave. is out. thanks!
