NORWALK, Conn. — Paul Cantor and Yvonne “Myška” Lopaur returned from an overseas trip this week and went for one of their favorite walks, finding “new wording” on a sign that popped up in his life a few weeks ago, he said.

Instead of “private road,” the sign between Ravenwood Road in Norwalk and Marianne Road in Darien now says “Welcome Norwalk Walkers.”

“We of course were pleased,” Cantor said.

Marianne Road is a private road, Darien Director of Public Works Edward Gentile said. Norwalkers complained passionately in December when a “no trespassing” sign was erected and it was swiftly covered up. While there’s a stone wall separating Norwalk from Darien, pedestrians can still walk through by using a path to the left, Cantor said.

Now that’s what we love to see in diverse and a growingly inclusive Norwalk! Can we see this sentiment in our neighboring private neighborhoods like Wilson Point and Rowayton? Hugs and Props to the sign artists!

Darien? The same town were you’ll find lawn signs that proclaim, “Hate has no home here” unless you’re from Norwalk? It’s OK to come to Norwalk to have a good time, shop and congest our streets with your gas guzzling SUVs! I say, get bent Rowayton, Darien, and all the rest of you rich white folks!
