Are we seeing a trend here? Fitchburg is also located in the north-central part of the state, along MA-2. It’s looking like if you make the drive east-west from Lowell to Greenfield, you should probably just stay in your car. Unless you need gas. Or a Dunkies.

There were two murders in Fitchburg in 2013. And residents have a 1 in 100 chance of being robbed. So be aware.
