THU. 7-3-14 Hi Lara! I just saw this is dated in APRIL! In case you didn't find a place yet here's some info. You can always move later! I've been having luck by searching with Zillow.com Or Trulia.com for Apts. in Pittsfield MA. I lived in Lenox over 3 yrs. Hard to get around on Rt. 7 & 20 unless you have a car.
You are probably looking to Buy a home or Rent a home or Apt. You should also check with 'Human Resources' at BMC that hired you, as they have Bldgs. where many Dr's & Nurses live at if they relocate doing internship..etc.
Many people come up for Tanglewood Season through end of July or August. I'm finding many of them are trying to rent Apts. or a home for the season instead of Hotel Rates.
There are Homes for rent & Sale & Apts for rent on berkshireeagle.com CLICK on MARKETPLACE & CLICK HOMES. Search by miles to an Apt. or Home. It currently has Lenox listings as well as Pittsfield MA too.
For a Middle School you are better off to check LENOX or even in LEE, MA only a short distance away. There is just so much crime in Pittsfield MA. There are Good & Bad sections of Pittsfield.
You can always Google it & see the sites that come up. For a reliable Agent/ Property Mngr. I called Whaling Properties. they have Apts. all over. CALL: Rebecca Weeks or Val Whaling at: 413-464-3896 They have Apts. right on North Street near the BMC. (They are walk up, however) Check online for pics of apts. at Zillow.com or try WhalingProperties.com (Or '.org' ) The Apts. are massive. I just can't walk up stairs.
