Nothing worse than a bad clam roll! I am not from Berlin but I wanted to add my opinion. My husband and I were just there last week while on vacation.
I found it to be a very pretty town.

They must be cleaning the place up. The last time i passed thru it was all torn down mills, and bricks covered the mill yards.

A couple weeks ago i was up in the area but stopped at Tractor Supply, where I bought a small gas culitvator. Maybe Berlin will indeed rise from the ashes. I'ld like to think so.

I'm from Philly and Berlin looks beautiful compared to it.

ANYWHERE in NH is beautiful compared to the NYC/tri-state.

born and raised in NJ just 4 miles from NYC, went to school in Glassboro, just outside Philly.
Philly is awesomely clean compared to NYC.

While I have only been to Berlin a few times, news reports and the papers are acclaiming a renewal of the area, structurally, if not fiscally.

Cannot comment on the clam rolls, but I'll take a red hot dog anyday!

Berlin was always a little rough around the edges, but when the mills shut down for good it got worse. Then the mills were torn down and that place looked like a bomb went off there. The last time I saw town it was cleaned up some, with red brick dust all around where stacked logs once were.

I guess that new fedral pen is raking in the dough. It's comforting to know the Obama Admin and Congress will have a nice place to go

The prison is sitting empty waiting for funding. If funding comes through I hope to relocate. (not as an inmate)

That right? The blasted thing is empty? Last I knew they were looking to fill it with staff and you could not be a day over 35. What was that about age discrimination?

And that! Really makes me suspicious. Sounds like FEMA Camp huh?

There is nothing wrong with Berlin, except the really high taxes and the fact that the homes won't appraise anywhere near the asking price. We just transferred in from a federal prison in Kentucky so we like wide open spaces. We just bought a place in Shelburne, low taxes and beautifully rural, just minutes from work...
