Another factor--there aren;t any parts of Massachusetts that are not part of
a city or a town. Those 40,000 people are in around 36 square miles [roughly
six miles by six miles]. The adjacent communities include Chelmsford,
Concord, Burlington, Carlisle, Wilmington, and Lowell which is one of the
original high density mill cities, is close by.

Well, that level of density makes sense, when you consider that most towns
around here have low-density zoning outside the town center, and a lot of
development on what used to be small farms. In other words, these towns
are suburbia, and not inner suburbia at that. I live 25 miles from Boston,
about the same as Paula I think.
