Many people that live in this town are very well off where money is concerned. Also there's 3 acre zoning for Roxbury. No fast food joints. No highways, Nature everywhere. It really is a wonderful place to live.

I love the 4 seasons, but the winters aren't getting any easier to deal with. That's the hardest part about living in the New England area. Winters are only getting colder and the snow just seems to pile up more and more every year.
I've worked for a few contractors in the area. They always seem willing to pay up until the point where they over extend their own finances. Then they cant pay their people. Don't they understand its the people that keep the wheels turning?
