What Bert Has To Say About Pittsfield Metro Area

An old agricultural and minor industrial center, Pittsfield has evolved into a gateway to the Berkshires. Nearby ski resorts, particularly to the north, draw winter visitors. To the south is the Tanglewood performing arts center in Lenox and the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge. The town itself is quiet, nondescript, and fairly isolated from big-city amenities, but Albany, NY is about 40 miles west.
