(n) second-largest city in Massachusetts. Not much to see from the highway, but the city actually has some beautiful old neighborhoods, affordable housing, good schools, and a comparatively low crime rate. It is also a no-frills industrial wasteland, very Lovecraftian in parts. Famed for its diners, punk scene and attitude. Nobody here wants to hear any crap from YOU, understand? good. Dollah-fifty.
For what I would have paid for closet space inside 128, I bought a primo three-decker in Worcester, and I'm letting the other tenants pay my mortgage.

The second largest city in Massachussetts. Historically a mill town and source of industry, Worcester is trying to re-invent itself and attract culture. It will be interesting if it manages to do so before Boston co-opts it as a 'bedroom community'. There are many great restaurants here, a good music scene, the Worcester Art Museum, the Higgins Armory Museum, nine colleges (UMass, WPI, Assumption, for example), several nice parks, some industry and biotech, etc. Like Boston, there are places you don't want to go after dark alone. (esp. Main South) Unlike Boston, you're not living on ramen and ketchup to make rent, and you have to work a little at finding something fun to do. You decide. I've never seen a garbage storm. Also historically known as Wormtown, known to friends as Woosta!
Realtor: You know, Boston is less than an hour away! Out of state person thinks: Really? Cool! Person who lives in/near Worcester thinks: Yeah, but the commute in the morning takes almost two hours, depending on when you start! Or you could take the commuter rail, and hope they've fixed the lateness problem...
Hey, you ever been to the 111 Chop House, Opia 1541, or Zipangos in Woosta! ?

if you're from worcester and you know how to speak, then you will refer to this delightful city as WOOSTAH. in worcester, some daily-lingo includes,

"whats the matta fa you?"
translation: "what's your problem?"

"whea'd you pahk the cah?"
translation: "where is the car parked?"

"when's the festival?"
translation: "when is the italian festival at Mt. Carmel or Lady of Loretto Church?"

"Oh, you want pastry? why didn't you just say so? Just guh down Shrewsbree Street and swing by Scano's bakery & pick up a few things"
translation: "If you want some good dessert, go to Scano's Bakery on Shrewsbury Street"

If you're looking for Italian food or some good bars, head down to Shrewsbury Street.

If you're looking for a biker bar, head to Cicero's, but only if you belong there. Otherwise, you'll get your ass kicked.

If you think you're a gangsta, then go to Holy Name of St. Peter Marian. You'll fit in just fine. Hardcore catholic school kids. Oh, boy.

If you want to strut your stuff on the dancefloor with some crazyass mofos, then head on over to Sh'Booms on Sunday nights. Yes, it's really called that.

Word to the wise, don't look at people wrong, and don't go into Great Brook Valley unless you have connections there.
"let's go jump that kid"

"Why?"

"He looked at me wrong"

"That shit doesn't fly here in Worcester. Let's get him"

You know you're from Worcester when....

You've say bubbler instead of water fountain.
You live on a "private road" that is unpaved and rutted.
You think of $280,000 as cheap for a house.
Your school classes were canceled because of frozen and burst pipes.
You know how to say Shrewsbury (shoes-bree), Worcester (Wusta), Marlborough (Marl-Bro), Leicester (lester), Leomenster (lemon-ster).
You think nothing of commuting two hours each way to work,
but you think people who drive 30 minutes to get to church are weird.
You think 70 degrees is hot and a perfectly fine time to go to the beach or pool.
You know the holy trinity is Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks and, Friendly's. There's at least 2 of the three on any major intersection.
You call sprinkles "jimmys"
You drop your R's towards the end of a sentence.
You can name all the 7 hills of Worcester.
You know Worcester is NOT SPELLED NOR PRONOUNCED WORCHESTER.
Man from Worcester : "Hey go pahk the cah we'll get some ice cream with jimmy's on top."
