"The ave" as new Bedford natives call it is scary. It's a major hotspot for crimes of all nature, and an apparent haven for the homeless or otherwise insane. New Bedford in general is not the vacation you want. Although I gave it a two because if you are not afraid to navigate s ghetto new bedford has some amazing ethnic food. But you might witness a murder getting it. Good luck.

Are you kidding me? Acushnet avenue is about two miles of "we ain't got nuthin' to offer'. It's usually referred to by locals as simply 'The Avenue' which I believe is Latin for "Dump". The Avenue is frequented by drug users, prostitutes, homeless, and punk kids with nothing better to do then drive up and down the strip endlessly through all hours of the day and night. The city doesn't have enough police to monitor the area and frankly The Avenue is a pimple on Massachusetts' you-know-what. Granted there are a few good stores along the route, but it doesn't outweigh the trouble and filth. There are a couple of dress shops, bakeries and restaurants, but what major street in America doesn't have those things. There is nothing special about Acushnet Avenue, unless you're looking to get mugged.

My subject line says it all. The avenue is very busy and dirty. Let's see, there are bar's, pharmacy's Portuguese restaurants, antique store or two, bakeries, real estate offices, banks, church, gas stations, etc. You get the idea, nothing special about it.
