Lowell is a non-descript suburb in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. It is famous for being featured on the HBO documentary High on Crack Street, and for local author and habitual drunkard Jack Kerouac. The town is ethnically diverse with Puerto-Ricans, Southeast Asians, Portuguese, Greeks, and French Canadians, among others. While driving in Lowell, you may notice large women and wall-eyed Puerto Ricans crossing callously in front of moving traffic. You may also notice naked children playing freely in public water fountains. There is a bitter rivalry between Lowell and the more obscure, less significant town of Dracut. Dracut looks down on Lowell's violence and untidy-ness while Lowell scoffs at Dracut's snooty-ness and hot babes. Yet, when asked from where they hail, most young folks from Dracut will not say Dracut, but rather, Lowell. The town of Dracut was also recently embroiled in controversy for stealing water from Lowell. This inter-town rivalry has been famously dubbed The Cold War of Middlesex County.
