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.

Tyer Says State Spending Plans Holds Good News for Pittsfield

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Mayor Linda Tyer gave a positive budget update during her regular address Friday on Pittsfield Community Television.
 
Tyer said with the state passing a three-month budget, the city finally has some solid state numbers for local and education aid — and its good news.
 
"With those two funding sources being restored, we are in a much better financial position then we anticipated we would be in when the City Council approved the budget in June," she said. 
 
The school and city passed operating budgets in June based on level or reduced amounts of state aid and administrators are still prepared for this funding to come in lower.
