Norwich is a small city that has typical urban issues. The schools are okay but not great and there are a few neighborhoods that have issues. That said note that there are many great areas to live as well. I am not sure what you are looking for there but if you are on a modest budget, it is not bad. JAy

Norwich is "okay," not the best little city and not the worst, either. You simply have to see for yourself and get a feel for it. For me, I find it to be a bit uninspired with a lack of direction. Perhaps you would rather look at towns around Norwich. Some that come to mind include: Montville, Salem, Colchester, etc. It's a great area, Southeastern Connecticut!

"Some that come to mind include: Montville"

even though it seems to fall on deaf ears everytime i say this, Montville does have very good schools and is certainly close enough to Norwich so that you're not driving a 1/2 hour to an hour.

Norwich, as stated above, is a small city with some typical urban issues, as well as a nice little downtown area. Many efforts are underway to liven up certain under-appreciated areas, and stimulate more economic growth, however these projects will take time, and whether the wait is worth it is totally up to you. As ctcoldplay mentioned earlier, I would encourage you to check it out for yourself if you have an opportunity to, and keep your mind open to the surrounding towns lest you find them more attractive.

Greenville is the one section of Norwich that you want to AVOID.
You should also know that Norwich has some of the highest taxes in the area.
I would look at Lisbon, Ct. which is just North of Norwich, has good schools, and a much lower mill rate.
