At first glance, North Adams' beautiful and bleak 19th-century downtown seems out of sync with the rest of the Berkshires. It's not so lively and the amenities are limited. But it doesn't take long to discover the appeal – mainly, Mass MoCA, an exemplary contemporary-art museum of staggering proportions. Indeed, the place is big enough to be its own village, and its grounds do in fact contain some of the city's best dining, drinking and shopping.
