Nashua, N.H., seems too far away from Boston to be a “bedroom community,” but in the quest for affordable housing, crime-free neighborhoods, and other prized essentia of suburbia, Nashua is an excellent choice, especially considering its sales-tax-free shopping and vibrant downtown.
After seeing the huge benefits the commuter rail brought to our former hometown of Brockton, Massachusetts, I am eagerly awaiting the day Nashua becomes a stop on the Purple Line.
I thought I’d start tracking some of the articles that come through Google Alerts about the rail project.
- Transport Bill Keeps NH Commuter Rail Alive (August, 2005)
- High Mass. Housing Prices Mean Long Commutes for Some Workers (September, 2005)
- Tougher terms for offenders, Lynch goal (September, 27, 2005; mentions the commuter rail project as one of Governor Lynch’s goals)
