    This article is spot on IMO. Northern New England in general is totally overrated. Glad someone finally got it straight.

    Yes. Please DO NOT STOP in Bethlehem.
    The easy access to the highways, shopping, the larger towns, the Notches, the Art Scene, the food, the Trailheads, etc.
    It all is bad.

    I have to agree with Woodsville being on the list. It really went downhill after Ameses closed.

    This list cracks me up. I'm no longer a MASSHOLE since I live in NY but I don't think there is a difference!? I've been looking into a family condo for the last few years and I often go back and forth between Lincoln, NH and Northeast Kingdom. Since Lincoln is such an "undesirable" location I wish the real estate rates would reflect it....

    It's still a far cry better than Wells River, though. Like St J vs Littleton.

    Bethlehem just got worse as the voters voted down the landfill expansion.

    Yes, Vermont’s NEK is awful. Come spend your money, but please don’t move here.

    A little more expensive, in the long run, I suppose.

    The current landfill is a snow covered, winter vista, down there by the river.

    Country is beautiful.
    The drive west on 9 from 91 over that switchback (Hogback ?) is in my subconscious as a favored mountain vista.
    I was comparing specific towns, as in the OP.

    That used to be my MO - Monadnock then Kimballs. Until Granite Roots Brewing Co opened in Troy.
    Now I hike, then beer.
    Nothin' on the top but a bucket and a mop
    And an illustrated book about birds.
    You see alot up there, but don't be scared:
    who needs actions when you got words?

    Would be interesting to see how this poll stacks up now in 2020.

    Ha! Not much has changed. Seems kind of subjective. Either there is a lot of cut and pasting going on or the Author is from south of Hooksett.

    I always have to laugh when I see stuff like this. But someone in East Snowshoe, Montana looking to move to NH could be influenced by it.
    And to top it all off, they make this claim about the survey:

    "This list is a scientific analysis based on real data and is completely unbiased"

    Ditto on that. Classifying Littleton and especially Conway as small towns is laughable to most of us.
