Pittsfield is a workaday city without the quaint, rural demeanor of the comparatively small Colonial towns that surround it. There's a positive buzz in Pittsfield these days, though, thanks to a resurgence of sorts: the beautifully restored Colonial Theatre hosts 250 performances every year, and a number of new shops and restaurants have appeared along North Street. City-sponsored art walks and a major renovation of the Berkshire Museum are additional evidence of Pittsfield's comeback.
