Norwalk Town Hall



In the mid-1970s, the city of Norwalk undertook the South Norwalk Revitalization Project.  (SoNo)  The goal was to preserve the historic architecture of South Norwalk and revitalize the neighborhood.  A commitment was made to develop a new maritime center, complete with an aquarium featuring live animals from Long Island Soung, an IMAX (giant screen) movie theater and a boat collection.  In 1986, ground breaking ceremonies took place on the site of a former 1860s iron works factory, an abandoned brick building on the SoNo waterfront.  

The Maritime Aquarium has been at the center of a major turnaround in South Norwalk.  It is the perfect family day of fun and learning.  SoNo now bustles by day with unique shops, boutiques, coffee shops and delis, and by night with nightclubs, acclaimed restaurants and cinemas.  

Norwalk is also home to many large companies including GE Capital and Dooney & Burke.  Many films have taken place in Norwalk including The Stepford Wives, Revolutionary Road, Birds of America and Hope Springs.  Norwalk truly offers something for everyone!
