Thought I'd post a few pics of Brockton, Mass (pop~95,000, and located about 20 miles south of Boston). Kind of a gritty city without much of a downtown (for its size). I've heard it has a huge public high school (over 4,000 students), but I didn't run into it on my brief visit.

Interesting pictures of Brockton, an old milltown that was hard hit by the decline of shoe manufacturing. Brockton lost population for many decades. But after enduring tough times, it’s back on the upswing, adding population as a slightly more affordable alternative housingwise to Boston. African Americans, as well as Haitian, Cape Verdian, Latino, & Asian immigrants, have been repopulating Brockton.
