Many people live in North Conway or Bartlett and commute the 45 minutes. It's a stunningly beautiful drive without traffic. Winters can be challenging but manageable with 4 WHD and adjusting your speed to the conditions. Bartlett has lower taxes but North Conway is where the majority of restaurants and shopping are located as well as the high school and jobs.

Amazing how this zombie thread gets resurrected from the dead every couple of years and there still isn't much good to say about Berlin.

For what it is worth, I was up in the Berlin-Gorham area last month. It IS beautiful country. The mountains are lovely and the Androscoggin River is pristine (or at least I think it is). It's good, quiet living.

Most of the trail heads to the Presedential Range converge in Randolph, just west of Gorham. Hikers paradise.

I don't recall where I read it but the Androscoggin river is clean, if you stay up top and near the center. The river bottom should not be disturbed as it still contains toxic pollution from the mill days decades past.

So did this city get any better or is it still a blighted town? Can't be worse than Dallas.

It's more depopulated & more rundown than it was 20 years ago.

So what exactly does that mean? Can you elaborate?

I have a job across the internet so I'm totally not worried about work.

Berlin is bleeding population. There are not many taxpayers left & little hope of jobs. The infrastructure is run-down. There is a major drug problem...I could go on, but you get the picture. Why do you think you can purchase multi-family homes for $60k & $70k.

Go a little south & look at Littleton, a major improvement IMO.

And make sure that your new residence can get high Speed internet. The best way to be sure is that it already has it. Don't rely on coverage maps.
