" City of the Damned"?
Lawrence, MA: City of the Damned Crime is soaring, schools are failing, government has lost control, and Lawrence, the most godforsaken place in Massachusetts, has never been in worse shape. And here’s the really bad news: it’s up to controversial mayor William Lantigua to turn it all around. I first saw the title to this Boston Magazine article a few weeks ago, and thought, never, in all my years of working and living in urban cities have I come across both a title and a description of an American City so brutal, so harsh, and so desscriptively depressing.
