Pittsfield used to be a booming place at one point in time! That was before General Electric closed its doors and put thousands of people without jobs. Then KB Toys closed their headquarters in Pittsfield again putting thousands of people without a job, Rices Silk Mill again the same thing!!! Now Pittsfield has turned into a Drug Dealers Paradise.. Pittsfield has become the centerpiece for Gangs and Drug Dealers!! They built all those "Low income" Housing buildings instead of bringing in job and companies to build the city up they built low income housing, 3 suboxone clinics, 2 Methadone clinics, and who can forget about the fact that there is a Bars and/or Bank pretty much on every single corner!! Got to have those kinds of places for people to deposit their welfare checks, SSI checks and Drug money right.. Got to have a bar on every corner so that the dealers have a place to deal!! Gee even One of Zen Pubs Bartenders will even sniff coke with you in the bathroom!!! Pittsfield has gone down hill so bad it is not a place to raise a family anymore and that is to bad because it used to be a beautiful place to live! Now it's like the Walking Dead at night, people overdosing on H****n every single day!! Drunks, Hookers and Drug Dealers up and down North St and First St it is a crying shame how bad that have let Pittsfield go.. and very sad!! WAKE UP CITY OFFICIALS CLEAN THE CITY UP IT IS TURNING IN TO A C**P HOLE!!!!!

There is a bar or a bank on every corner!! Drunks, hookers, and Drug Dealers everywhere! Looking to score walk up and down North St, First St. Cumberland Farms Parking like, All Town Parking Lot ect. Go on Tyler St to Zens Pub! There a bartender or two in there that will even do a line of coke or two in the bathroom with you.. If you're a guy you might even get more than that.. It is sad and disgusting how bad Pittsfield has gotten! Definitely getting out of here SOON!!!!
