A City Rises in the Country

The Boston Globe ran a great article yesterday about Pittsfield, MA. This once troubled little city has been experiencing a cultural and economic Renaissance over the past few years and it’s nice to see a paper, such as The Globe, recognize that.

The better half and I were first introduced to Pittsfield when our friend, Darrell Pucciarello opened his school for dance, Studio One, in the town several years ago.

If you haven’t already done so, you can read the Boston Globe article, written by Globe Correspondent, Joan Axelrod-Contrada, here.
