Northampton is located in the heart of the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts. It is considered a small New England City, with a population of 30,000. The Berkshire foothills are off to the west, and the Connecticut River winds through the center. Northampton is renowned as an arts and entertainment community named “Number One Best Small Arts Town in America” by author John Villani and one of the “Top 25 Arts Destinations” in the nation by AmericanStyle magazine. Culture and the Arts are what shape the community as it is in a culturally vibrant area known as the “5 college area”. Northampton is home to Smith College, the largest all women college in the country, and is surrounded by 4 other colleges; Amherst College, Mt Holyoke College, Hampshire College, and the Univ. of Massachusetts.
The Northampton City motto is; caritas, educatio, justitia, which means Caring, Education, and Justice. These are three themes that continue to be important to the people who make their homes here.
The Boston Globe once said of Northampton: “Here is a city with the urban flair of Coolidge Corner in Brookline or the South End in Boston — that is, until you set foot in a crosswalk. Cars stop magically. Politeness toward pedestrians — and pretty much everyone else — is a way of life. A civility exists here in the state’s west that is rare east of Route 128. The Culture amist the calm”
Northampton is quite well known for its restaurants and shops, and the abundance of recreation found very close by. Although it has a rural tone within minutes of downtown, the city itself, because of the cultural benefits of the colleges, and the entrepreneurial and arts appeal, has been described as a rural environment with all of the culture, art and education of a big city.
