I visited a very cool antique glass museum in New Bedford Massachusetts a number of years ago and was directly across from a fish processing plant? Not sure on terminology but I'm sure that it fuckin reeked like being punched in the nose then kicked behind the knees.

Can't imagine how anyone can work in that miasma. Totally respect it though, that's heavy duty.

I did some work in both Fall River and New Bedford and I'd choose Fall River any time

My last factory job was making plastic bags and it was a minimum of a hundred degrees for 12 hour shifts. Some shifts boring as hell, some busting your rear end.

I love the never ending battle in regards to which one of those towns is shittier. No one ever defends either of them. They just will argue about which one isn't as lovely. My pick is Fall River. I find it to be far more of a depressing shithole. If suicide was a town it would be Fall River. Plus they have that goofy loving accent you'll find nowhere else in Massachusetts.

IIRC there's a cove sort of inlet carved out by the drowning machine whirlpool and it's on the canadian side. It tends to be where it will spit up large things that have fallen in like your barrel or your arm attached to a piece of barrel.

E. Being where you want your barrel to come out it's also where the cops set up to arrest you.

New Bedford can actually be really pretty in some places and even it's bad neighborhoods never really felt that awful to me, granted I was a lovely teenager when I was last there, so my opinion might be a bit skewed. Fall River was always depressing, run down, and part of the bridge under city hall fell on someone and killed them on 195 I think?

Everyone's horny as hell for getting factory jobs back, when factory jobs actually suck real bad and there's nothing left to guarantee that they're decently paid at all anymore.

Same deal with coal mining in the part of PA I grew up in. The mines closed around the time WWII ended, but everyone's sitting by great grandpa's boots waiting for that mine to reopen.

It's been a long time since I was there but Fall River was just the place we went to outlet malls

New Bedford had every store close at 5pm and lock the bars on the windows. It was reportedly pretty dangerous. Cool boat museum, I guess

two years ago I drove to South of the Border on a whim, since it's about an hour from where I live now. I had driven past it hundreds of times on trips down I-95, but this was my first time actually going to visit:

on the way I passed by this yard just absolutely littered with fiberglass animals



this place is nothing but a handful of tourist shops that sell pretty much the exact same crap as the store next to it, a very run down motel, a few gas stations on each end before you get on the highway, and a restaurant in the middle. that's it.





the reptile lagoon was closed


the world's #1 miniature golf course was also closed


I wanted to climb to the top of the sombrero, but of course that was closed too


on the far end of the SotB strip there used to be a small amusement park, but now it's a big empty field



this guy was the only person I saw that wasn't an employee the entire time I was there





a shotgun with a scope: the most popular gift for children






son of a bitch booze bracelet


I really liked these flower butt monkeys but they were $35 each



these two shelves were right next to each other in case you needed some racist tchotchkes to remember your visit


of course there's a year round christmas store here as well


I didn't see a single cactus (or vampire) anywhere






SC has a much looser restrictions on fireworks than NC, so of course the biggest store here (and what I assume is the only thing keeping this place going) was the fireworks shop

I really can't imagine this place surviving for 10 more years so I'm glad I got to visit

I lived in the riv and new beige for a number of years in my 20s due to the insanely low cost of rent. As a single adult male it's not too bad as far as low rent neighborhoods go.

When I got serious about wife life I knew I had to leave though, the creep of crime from the Flint in Fall River was pushing right against my edge of the neighborhood.

I'll always miss the bodegas and bakeries. Some of the hits: Sam's bakery (the Lebanese meat pie place), jjs hotdogs, the Belmont, the feasts at local churches where you just go dance because you don't speak portuguese.

Both cities have their charms if you are willing to engross yourself in the cultures. Sometimes you have to know you keep your hood down and and just ignore the chaos.

It's been a while since I've thought about that time, I assume they've changed significantly.

I never went to the big one, I'd go to the smaller ones at a local church. Never any incidents but they were 100% Portuguese speaking and older neighborhood people. Great parties, great food, very friendly despite my obvious out of place.

Those same neighborhood people would buy live chickens and butcher them in the backyard with all the spectacle you'd imagine though, heh.

Thanks for taking the pictures. I've driven by a few times heading to Georgia and SC, and always knew it wasn't worth my time to stop, but wanted to know how junky the place was.
