Jim Canavan | North Adams, Mass.
North Adams is located in the northwest corner of Massachusetts, in the Berkshire Hills. Home to 13,000 people, and next door to Williamstown, the city has yet to recover from the loss of manufacturing 25 years ago. The low level of educational achievement holds the workforce back. Recently, the creative economy has breathed some life into the area.
