Off to North Adams, Mass we went. I found a book called "Best Art Towns".
Be very cautious when checking books out of the library with "best" in the title.
It was located in a beautiful spot, on the base of a huge mountain. The downtown was revitalized and very dear. Nice coffeehouse, lovely bookstore. Two components for a tolerable town. Coffeehouse-check. Bookstore, check. Right then, what about the neighborhoods? Oh yeah-and it has a brand spanking new Musuem of Contempory Art. called MoCA. Cute right?
I won't go into gory detail of the neighborhoods, but it made me appreciate where we are at the moment.
We still have to move though. The schools are crap and the city just takes and takes and gives nothing back. I just need to research more, and of course take long weekend drives.
I know I'm an idealist, but I have to at least try to find a nice place. I grew up in a nice place. Melvin grew up in a nice place. We want the same sweet town for our little man.
