Is Lawrence, Massachusetts "Damned?"
Lawrence, Massachusetts is one of the state's most financially troubled cities. The city's controversial mayor, William Lantigua, failing schools, and widespread crime were recently chronicled in a Boston Magazine article entitled "Why Lawrence, Mass. is the City of the Damned". The article provoked a strong reaction from those who live in the city. Residents and city officials say it's time to push past these sensational characterizations. We'll explore Lawrence and all its parts: the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Do you live in Lawrence? We want to hear from you. Tell us what Lawrence is like from your perspective; from your neighborhood, from your school, from the places where you worship and work. Tweet us or leave a comment on our Facebook page.
