Thanks for the comments, folks. I think I walked over five miles taking these.
I didn't know much about specific Lowell neighborhoods beforehand, but have done a little research since then. It turns out the area I photographed midway through the tour, west of downtown with all the low-rise public housing is part of a neighborhood known as The Acre, and is known as Lowell's worst. It was dead quiet when I was there so I was able to get a bunch of pics. Having that as the only residential area I shot does skew the impression of Lowell in this tour a bit. The neighborhoods I saw from the car further from downtown seemed to be more stable blue collar areas, with some solid middle class areas on the outskirts.
A pretty cool city, throughout.
