Favorite thing: Candlepin bowling, popular in New England, was invented in Worcester in 1880. Candlepin bowling balls are smaller than traditional bowling balls and have no holes. The pins are also smaller and therefore harder to hit.
This is a typical Worcester neighborhood.
Back in the early 1900's a lot of these houses were built as 1 or 2 family places, and a lot were converted to one family because of the baby boomers.
Now most that I know are 2 family.

Fondest memory: good variety of foods on one street ,
