Yes, there's a lot of 'girl-on-girl' in these parts. Lovely Smith College has been providing scenic Northampton with L.U.G.s (Lesbian Until Graduation) for decades. It's nothing new and it's nothing extrodianary. Please, don't stare at the lesbians.
noho is big on progressive mindedness. the people there are cool, hip, considerate, intelligent and artsy! Northampton was named the biggest little art town in america, and for good reason. you have to check out all the art studios and stores on main street.
