great thread. Lowell is one of my favorite cities in all of New England. I agree with those who think it's doing better than these pix indicate, at least in relation to other MA "mill cities". Downtown is very quaint, with the mills (now lofts, I guess), historic architecture, and cobblestone streets. Commuter rail into Boston doesn't hurt I'm sure. The poster who said it's like a museum was correct, the city is milking the history for all it's worth. I believe a museum there is managed by the national park system, but don't quote me on that.
