I would never suggest Fitchburg. My own personal opinion. I don't even like driving through or going to Fitchburg. There may be decent areas, but overall.. I don't suggest it.

Fitchburg as a whole has a high crime rate. Some nice areas still, but there are much better places to live, in the area than Fitchburg.

Fitchburg's crime rate for 2009 (the last year reported) was about 750 incidents per 100,000 residents. Massachusetts crime rate was about 425 incidents per 100,000 residents. Bethlehem, PA had a rate of about 300 incidents per 100,000 residents. This is violent crime, not property crime. Fitchburg is more than twice as dangerous as were you currently live.

Fitchburg MA is horrible. All the crime of much larger cities. Gangs, open prostitution homelessness corrupt police, murders stabbings rapes gun violence, heavy drug use. Mayor turns streetlights off in all areas of town except main street which is very hazardous driving in winter and dangerous to walk anywhere.

Fitchburg is not a high crime rate to where i live now in Fall River. We are are almost triple the crime rate of fitchburg, and double the crime rate of Boston. I am actually looking to move back to Fitchburg before Christmas.
