This story in the Boston Globe shows that the ten fastest-shrinking towns in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are those in the Berkshires. The decline and greying of our rural population can be reversed, and put on a sustainable path, by improvements in connectivity that will make the Berkshires not only desirable but practical for young professionals and global entrepreneurs. Passenger service to New York City should be a priority for everyone concerned with quality of life in the Berkshires and northwestern Connecticut, and that’s what the Train Campaign is all about. Join us, by volunteering, donating, and spreading the word!
The fastest-shrinking towns in Massachusetts:
- North Adams
