Nobody Smart Wants to Live in New England

The WSJ reports that states all over New England are launching marketing campaigns, internship programs, college comedy tours—anything to keep young college grads from fleeing New England for other, better places. Well, it won’t work. Any idiot can do the math on New England:

Plus: Quaint. Minus: Quaint.

Plus: Fall foliage, apple picking. Minus: Your lifeless body was found frozen atop Mount Washington after you went out for a quick October hike.

Plus: Skiing. Minus: Eight months a year of icy hell, virtually entombing you in a pre-modern lifestyle of woodchopping and indoor-huddling.

Plus: You can spot a wild black bear from your back yard. Minus: He ate you.

Plus: Boston. Minus: Fuck Boston.

For a taste of something more dramatic, head to Woodstock, Connecticut, for a tour of Roseland Cottage (860-928-4074, historicnewengland.org), a coral-pink house from the 1840s that’s one of the country’s best preserved examples of Gothic Revival architecture. The home is full of stained glass, embossed wallpaper, and original antique furniture (to say nothing of a 19th-century bowling alley). (via Bargains in our backyard: Taking in the New England sights is always a little cheaper this season - Boston.com)
