'Urban Outfitters', in Northampton, certainly has an impressive building as their store.

Where do people work in such communities? American settlements are so far apart, and often many miles from big cities.
Amherst & Northampton are college towns with over 30,000 students. Therefore, I assume most employment stems from education. Northampthon is the seat of Hampshire County government, which would bring employement in government, including the county courthouse--lawyers, etc. Much of the economy seems to be supported by the arts & retail. The towns are only 18 miles north of Springfield, MA, which is a rather large city. In fact, Hartford, CT (Capital of Connecticut), Springfield, MA & several other towns clustered near each other along the Connecticut River (including Amherst & Northampton) have a nickname of Knowledge Corridor. A nickname promoted by the Chamber of Commerce no doubt. I have some nice photos of Hartford & should post them. Amherst & Northampton are probably full of college students from Boston, but too far away to be in our commuter belt.

The Emily Dickinson home is a museum. We intend to go back to explore the museums and other attractions.

A quick trip through Dorchester, a neighborhood in the city of Boston. Actually, it is a huge area with many neighborhoods within.

The Mattapan Trolley starts at the Ashmont T Station, where you can transfer from a regular T train to the trolley. Or the High-Speed Line, if you can believe that name! It is more cling-clang goes the trolley than high speed.

Hey, you're as prolific as me

Seriously, great photos, as usual.

Boston's blue-collar neighbourhoods look, somehow, a lot more colourful than their British equivalents.

Ha! I wonder if I post too many pics. I am sure it can be overwhelming. Most of my backlog pics have been posted, so I will be posting fewer & current photographs -- for the most part. Really, I love doing it.

I absolutely loved that tour! Followed it from beginning to end. I fell in love with Boston when I was there, and long to go back. Maybe next summer. Also fell in love with your little dog Margo, and wanted to pick her up and hug her!!

p.s. If there are any other photos of Episcopalian Church interiors/exteriors, please post them. It is interesting to see how they are similar to/different from the evolution of the Anglican Church here in Canada.

Many thanks! I like to photograph churches. I always take note of Episcopalian/Anglican churches because that is what I am. Catholic churches are fun, too, because they are often open and quite beautiful inside.

By the way, little Margo is very huggable!

Crash-N, your comments are much appreciated! I love subways, trolleys, trams, etc. The Mattapan Trolley is cute because it is so old fashioned.

@gmoney, jbkayaker12, madridhere - thanks for for looking and your comments.
