THE spit of beach at the end of Dock Road in South Norwalk, a lively community 45 miles from Manhattan, offers a handy way to understand the little-bit-of-this, little-bit-of-that spirit of the place.
To the left looms the blue hulk of the Manresa Power Plant, an active facility and a reminder that the area, part of the city of Norwalk, still has a working and sometimes gritty waterfront.
To the right is Village Creek, which meanders past lush banks and moored boats. What few houses there are seem so generously surrounded by trees as to be almost invisible.
Being at once industrial and suburban has benefits, says Jim DePasquale, who enjoys the view of boats on Norwalk Harbor from his five-bedroom Cape, for which he paid $400,000 in 2005. Although water views can sometimes come along with a location on a dune-enclosed dead-end, Mr. DePasquale’s neighborhood has sidewalks connecting it seamlessly to the bustling restaurant-and-bar district known as SoNo along Washington Street.Continue reading the main story
Created in the 1980s from a run-down mix of 19th-century warehouses, in part to save them from the wrecking ball, SoNo continues to bustle at night.
On some blocks there is lingering crime — recent police reports cite burglaries and assaults, and in May there was a homicide — but Mr. DePasquale, who lived in Manhattan before moving to South Norwalk, says every urban area has these issues. “We’re a New York-style quaint little town,” was how he put it.
Crime aside, however, South Norwalk’s rough-and-tumble edges make it more down-to-earth than other towns in the region, whose showy affluence has earned it the nickname the Gold Coast.
“I like to think of us as a very high-end blue-collar community,” said Michael Harden, who works as a lobsterman after a career spent building models for corporations like Knoll. “We all work for a living down here.”
Mr. Harden’s wood-sided 1910 house, with four bedrooms and two baths, cost $290,000 in 1998, though he admits he probably got a favorable price because he knew the seller. Today, it might fetch $750,000, Mr. Harden says, citing a recent renovation that included elevation to protect against flooding.
With a wide variety of houses, the majority under $1 million, South Norwalk is able to claim socioeconomic diversity, which can’t be said for every bedroom community in the county.
