I am wondering what Berlin NH is like... was thinking of moving there with my toddler.
What are the schools like, playgrounds, library,what activities are there....
I will not be looking for work...
The odor is no longer there but not sure that the river isn"t still polluted.Berlin is a poor area-used to be mainly populated by French loggers and at one time was the biggest shopping area around the North Country.The people there always kept their homes up and still are trying to in some areas other areas look like a slum.The state is putting a prison up there but jobs are only available if your I think 37 or younger'don"t have debt and of course no criminal record.Not sure how that is going to help the area unless bringing in all these younger people from out of state will create a need for other business.Also it could bring in the families of the prisoners who might be expecting financial aid that isn"t there.Homes are cheap.There is a super Walmart in Gorham and that is about it.There is a hospital.Possible plans to open another type mill but cleaner then the past ones.I just kinda think the state should have come up with something better for Berlin then a prison.
Wow= really enjoyed the films from Berlin.I don't know why I thought it was mainly populated by French loggers except that a good friend of mine had relatives from that area and they were French and even now when I on occasion go there most of the people I have spoken to from the area are of French extraction. I would love to see Berlin make it again even though I am not from that area. It was an era where you worked hard for your money but the people were decent.They didn't know how the chemicals used at that time could affect them.
I have been looking for info on Berlin myself due to a possible work transfer. Much of the info I've found on this site is biased in the negative, outdated, or just not helpful. Any info along what Jodie is looking for would be awesome.
