Diana Mara Henry moved to Springfield in 2001. She was looking for a lovely, but moderately priced, home where she could send her daughter to a quality private school. She found that, and much more, in Springfield. She purchased the historic Lathrop House, which became not only her home, but also her business. The Lathrop House is now a charming Bed & Breakfast. You might want to stay there if you decide to visit Springfield. That's what several guests have done, and some of them have wound up moving to Springfield themselves!
Diana looked at homes in Northampton and Holyoke, but found them overpriced and lacking in the amenities she sought. Being close to a vibrant Jewish community and being across the street from the world-class Forest Park are two of Diana's favorite things about Springfield. She also enjoys the ease with which she can get around. After having lived in NYC and the Boston area, the fine roads in Springfield are appreciated.
Diana enjoys the Springfield Symphony, as well as the nearby luxury multiplex cinema in West Springfield. She frequently attends cultural activities in Hartford, CT, and especially enjoys the opera at the Bushnell. She also goes back to NYC frequently, and is able to hop right on the highway to get there. When she visits California, she can get to Bradley AIrport in about twenty minutes.
What surprised Diana the most about Springfield was the open-minded, cosmopolitan people who live in this mid-sized city. And she should know, having lived in major metropolitan areas in the US, as well as Rome, Italy.
