Great Barrington & Around/USA

Introducing Great Barrington & Around

Main St used to consist of Woolworth's, hardware stores, thrift shops and a run-down diner. These have given way to artsy boutiques, antique shops, coffeehouses and restaurants, so much so that locals are beginning to call their town 'Little SoHo,' perhaps to appeal to the many city travelers who are now stopping to shop and eat at the best selection of restaurants in the region. The Housatonic River flows through the center of town just east of Main St/US 7, the central thoroughfare.
