North Adams Reviews
I have been back and forth visiting a 2nd home for nearly that last 8+ years--in the last 3 we saw such positive changes engaging current and long time residents along with new people, activities and programming. Sure Mass MoCa gets much credit and rightly so, but so does MCLA, the people of the community and those innovative and positive people shepherding in the newest chapter. My kids have enjoyed coming along and now take their friends to visit, hike, eat and listen to music and share art...thank you NA!
The area around the college is relatively safe. In the downtown and edges of town, crime is more prevalent. The campus is patrolled constantly by the school's own Department of Public Safety. Officers are armed (Special State Police Officers) and sometimes assist/are assisted by the North Adams Police Department.
North Adams has been a wonderful community to spend my time as a college student in. From the amazing resources at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, to the local art scene brought out by MASS MoCA, to the number of delicious local restaurants - this town has a strong spirit and amazing sense of community!
