PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The offices of the award-winning regional magazine Berkshire Living have moved to 7 North St.

Berkshire Living LLC also publishes Home and Garden and BBQ: Berkshire Business Quarterly and includes Berkshire Living Custom Publishing.

Berkshire Living's second-floor suite of offices features contemporary decor; the 12-foot ceilings and architectural details are original to the 1868 structure, which has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1986. The building, owned by Scarafoni Associates, overlooks bustling Park Square.

"Berkshire Living makes a great addition to all the business activity happening in downtown Pittsfield," said Mayor James M. Ruberto. "I applaud their investment in our downtown and welcome them as one of our new neighbors."

Pittsfield was selected as being a more central location for Berkshire Living and its affiliated publications, which cover the greater Berkshire region from northwestern Connecticut and nearby New York to Southern Vermont.

"Pittsfield is a city on the move, and we are thrilled to be a part of its growth," said founder and publisher Michael Zivyak.

"From our new offices in Pittsfield, we will be well-positioned to carry on our tradition of covering the greater region and working with contributors from throughout the Berkshires," said Editor-in-chief Seth Rogovoy.

Since its launch in December 2004, the magazine's headquarters has been in Great Barrington, first on Railroad Street, and more recently at 244 Main St.

Downtown Pittsfield Inc. Eyes Strategic Plan, Reflects on 'Rough Year'

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Downtown Pittsfield Inc. is emerging from the pandemic year with the intention of developing a strategic plan process that includes all of its members and stakeholders. 
 
The goal will be to think about how Pittsfield can be a thriving place to live, work, and play for all members of broader communities.
 
President Branden Huldeen explained that he sees three ways that everyone can move forward together: innovation, collaboration, and the very important work in equity, diversity, inclusion, and access.
 
"I want to recognize it, it's been a rough year. And rough is probably the kindest word I could probably use for right now. But I'm proud of the number of businesses that have been able to push through so far," Huldeen said at Thursday's annual meeting.
