"Almost all of my mentors from residency are now colleagues and have truly made me feel valued as part of the health system." Li ndsey Sch m id, ma rketi ng director at 1Berkshire, an economic d e v e l o p m e n t o r g a n i z a t i o n f o r P i t t s f i e l d a n d w e s t e r n Massachusetts, cites the high quality of life coupled with the relatively low cost of living as one of the area's main draws. "You can pay for a house here for what it would cost you to buy a parking spot in New York City," she says. However, western Massachusetts is still incredibly culturally vibrant, which goes back to the boom it saw during the Gilded Age, when millionaires built their summer homes in the Berkshires. "Today, people come here to be inspired," says Schmid. "Writers, photographers, artists — they'll come here to pick up on that history and that energy." Entrepreneurs, too, are vital to the creative economy, and it is not just food trucks, according to Schmid. Anyone who wants to be creative and make an impact on the community can leave their mark here. "Everyone's story of how they got here is just so interesting," says Schmid. "I think because 80 percent of the land is undeveloped, it's easier to access your creative potential without the noise of the city around you." Popu la r attractions i nclude Tanglewood (the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra), the Norman Rockwell Museum, the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (M ASS MoCa), the Gilded Age mansions, and Edith Wharton's home, the Mount.
