Having accumulated, then, twenty years of experiential knowledge living in Fall River, I thought I knew more about the city than – it turns out – I do. The way that I know Fall River, and the way that I portray my home town to others, is as a large, diverse, economically-challenged, dead end city. This does not paint the…
