Will The Berkshires realize the uptick so many other communities have had? Some people are "betting" on it!
Just this weekend there was a fantastic article in the NY Times about lots of new happenings! These include new restaurants, the new Boutique hotel "Tourists" and new cultural attractions. Tanglewood is expanding. There are new condo's going up in Great Barrington.... and while that's awesome, I'm most excited about what is happening in what we locals call "North County".
Williamstown has Williams College and The Clark Museum and hasn't been nearly as affected by economic downturns as North Adams and Adams have been. Mass MOCA is thriving and strong and brings lots of tourism however more is needed to give locals jobs back after the closing of many mills. Now, we have award winning Chef's coming in to open new restaurants!
Don't let this momentum pass you buy? If you've ever thought about that second home or moving to a "slower pace of life", now is the time to come see everything we have to offer!
