Description

The series revealed "the squalor conditions of low-income housing" in Springfield and Holyoke, MA. Reporters found that "unlike the eastern part of the state, the western area housing stock continued to suffer from blight and tax evading landlords that ran their buildings into the ground after the housing market bust of the 1980's." Part of the series "looked at the housing crunch in the student housing markets in the five-college area of Western Massachusetts."
