There are nine Massachusetts cities with more than 100,000 people living in them. Cities come in all different shapes and sizes and the same goes for population.

Growing up in the eastern part of the Commonwealth, I swear I will never return. I certainly don't detest the city where I grew up, however, the number of people, traffic, overall congestion, and noise is too much for me now.

The pandemic caused some folks to reconsider what was important to them in life and some states even saw an exodus to less populated areas. Massachusetts was slightly affected, not nearly as much as New York or California, however.
