Welcome to Worcester, $1.25 sir.


Just think that its noteworthy that Worcester, MA has finally taken its title as New England’s second largest city over Rhode Island’s capital, Providence for the first time since being bumped to third in 2001. The Worcester Telegram and Gazette cites the US Census Bureau’s estimate that July of 2006 pushes Worcester, MA over Providence, RI by a mere 199 people (at 175,454 total population).
