But for the newspapers in Boston (which is self-identified as the "Hub of the Universe") Pittsfield might well be a City in an alternative Universe.
What you will read below is a "puff-piece".
It 's nice enough , but it utterly ignores Pittsfield's loss of up to 15,000 blue collar jobs since the days of the Korean conflict.
It utterly confuses the locations of the former Berkshire Savings Bank; the former Pittsfield National Bank,; and the frmer First Aggie (First Agricultural) Bank.
It ignores the lovely neo-Gothic First Church, U,C.C. on Park Square,
And whilst it says nice things about the gorgeous Tiffany windows at St, Stephen's Parish (not St, Stephens as the Globe crews up its grammar) ), it has never a word to say about the the fabulous mary elizabeth tillinghast stained glass windows and altar at St.Stephen's.
Maybe that's because a male (Louis Comfort Tiffany) has more credibility in the eyes of the Boston Globe than a female (Mary Tillinghast),
HERE IS THE PUFF PIECE FROM THE GLOBE.
