NORWALK -

Southwestern Connecticut ranked both at the top and bottom of a couple of national quality life surveys.

The advocacy group Safewise listed Greenwich as the number one place in the U.S. to raise a child.

The group cited the town's crime stats as well as its health and education systems.

Stamford and Bridgeport listed near the bottom of the rankings for best places for first time homebuyers.

According to WalletHub, Stamford is out of reach for most first time buyers, while Bridgeport is crippled by high taxes and a lack of services.
