New Bedford small, old city in Southcoast, MA. It's called New B, Beffud, New Beige by the portugees. Most of the population is either Cape Verdian or Portuguese.more...
Honestly, New Bedford is crime and weed ridden. West End and South end are typicall the least safe. The North end is the safest part of New Bedford, especially "Far North" or Sassaquin, which everyone knows isn't really New Bedford by social standards.
The ghetto is dominant. Nearly every kid has had a Sidekick, half of them stolen. Nike Air Forces used to be one of the biggest trends, but nearly every foot you see in New Bedford has Jordans on.
The alt/music scene, though, is actually quite prominent. Everyone goes to shows; half the bands are hardcore, half of them pop punk, but at the end of the day, they all pay respects to Half Hearted Hero, New Bedford's most well known band.
Everyone goes to New Bedford High. There's a fight every day, and everyone uses the excuse, 'there was a fight!' to be late to class, and the teachers almost always accept it as a legit excuse.
Downtown New Bedford, is different than most of New Bedford. While associated with the music scene as well, downtown is more closely related to art, the city's history, and culture. No Problemo and The Green Bean are well known. Solstice is heaven to skaters. The Whaling Museum, is the main representation of what New Bedford was famous for years ago.
Everyone knows and has been to the Whaling City Festival and Madiera Fest.
City in Southeastern Massachusetts, located in Bristol County. About 90% of the population is Portuguese descent. It's probably the most Portuguese city in the US. A lot of gangs, drugs, violence, shit like that. It's a real ghetto in most parts.
I lived in New Bedford for over 25 years, & I fucking hate it. I gotta get the fuck out.
New Bedford: A diamond in the rough. If it wasn't for the crackhead fishermen bringing the best of the drugs known to man...our city would be wonderful! But that's the mayor's job to clean that up...so DO YOUR JOB LANG!
Dunkin' on every other corner, hey! what's better than that!
A city where you feel welcome... just watch your back. Yes the people smile and say hello as they walk by, but god knows what their intentions are!
A place where if you want KFC...go before dinnertime! Otherwise you've got a 45min wait on your hands!
And yes, you will actually see people on the front porch drinking grape kool-aid and braiding hair!!!
"Hey mama, go get some fried chicken Tamika is coming ova to hook a niggah up wit some braids...gotta feed her so I don't have to owe her any fava's! These bitches in New Bedford are greedy"
New Bedford is another ghetto
city filled with drug dealers
and gangs. I visited there as a tourist and got robbed at gun point in broad daylight. Be careful what areas you go to especially, the South & Westends of it.
Don't walk the streets of New Bedford MA, with out a gun, or with money and jewlery.
