Armadillos Burritos has the best burritos I've ever had the opportunity to bite into!

Not only that, they have an NHFree.com poster in the men's room :)

***

#27 -- "Vibrant" is my fav word to describe downtown Keene.

***

#37 perhaps should include Brewbakers Coffee shop -- a quaint, freedom-friendly place with its own free wi-fi

***

Free wi-fi all over downtown Keene

***

Don't forget Blueberry Fields, for the natural/organic crowd

***

Keene has an awesome Farmer's Market that is open twice a week, during three seasons.

***

#57 -- Don't forget the Hemporium!  Not exactly a smokeshop, but it's a really cool hemp shop.

***

Folks in Keene are friendly and down-to-earth! :)

***

For book lovers, Toadstools book store is awesome!  It is very large and well-stocked.  Keene also has two used book stores, Eagle Books and Hannah's Used Books.

"Challenges-
Close proximity to both Massachusetts and Vermont + college town = lots of socialists"
Many believe that gov't should help people, but they are not as authoritarian. 
"Lots of voter apathy"
I believe is a great thing.

"Liberty Advantages
Keene cops not as nasty as bigger cities like Manchester."
that is a good one.

"Liberty Advantages"
Despite the liberal politics, this is an activist friendly town, particularly for out of the system activists.

Movie Headquarters in Keene is a great locally owned business.
They offer a huge selection of films and games. The independent films, documentary, and foreign films section is fantastic. Good prices and long rent times as well as weekly specials.

I don't want to rain on your parade but as a local citizen born in Keene I would like to have seen these reasons have a better reflection in reality.

1. "Keene is the economic hub of southwestern NH". This is misleading, Keene is not the economic hub but just the largest town in Cheshire County. The median household income for NH is $53,377. For Cheshire county it's $46,428 with per capita income at $26,074. In Keene the per capita is $20,544 with $21,587 for U.S. as a whole (U.S. census bureau).

"Downtown Keene - Widest Main Street in America - easy parking!"

This was a slogan used by the Keene Chamber of Commerce and locals to attract tourists. It never had any basis in fact. And the parking thing is dangerous to pedestrians and bikers and was never designed to be easy. It was designed to generate revenue not ease of use. No where in NH will you find as many parking meters as Keene.

Parking meters are a problem in Keene, but I'm don't see how angled parking is in any way dangerous to pedestrians and bikers.

You can find me in a downtown coffee shop virtually every day... and I find the parking both cheap and convenient.  It didn't take me long to find the way cheaper (20 cents/hr.) metered parking lot between Gilbo and Emerald streets, just a few quick steps from Main Street.

It grates me to deposit money into a government-run parking meter, and I only do it because their parking space service meets the necessary three criteria: 1) It serves my needs better than any alternative, 2) It is provided on a 100% voluntary fee basis, and 3) As far as I can tell, parking space service is wide open to competition (if downtown landowners wish to make their own parking areas available to the public, they are free to do so).

If all government operated in that manner, everything would be chill :)

It wouldn’t be government anymore. ;)

I used to have a similar attitude about the tolls on the highways here, since toll roads are one of the most likely ways a private road would be paid for. Then I learned about how half the tolls collected go toward administrative overhead. No private business would tolerate such inefficiency within itself. And, they raised the tolls recently so they could replace the automated booths with paid employees—unionized state employees, of course. Most private businesses nowadays are going in the other direction, replacing human labor with automation, in order to reduce costs and increase efficiency.

I wonder where that 20¢/hr is really going…

Yup... and I also can't help but wonder if it is being subsidized through taxes.

If that turns out to be the case, I'm afraid I will have to refrain from using city operated parking spaces.  There are private parking alternatives in downtown Keene, just less convenient.

There are simply too many of them. You must have walked across main before the renovation to understand. It's like a vortex now. It was quite wide before. I have almost been hit quite a number of times on foot. I have been hit a number of times on a bike. Not one of the cars involved stopped of course. Lets talk freedom from injury here.

Keene is the economic hub, because that's where all the business is.

The vast majority of the businesses in Keene are service oriented and pay quite low wages. The town council members are mostly owners of these businesses and have no interest in any effort to attract industry. Ask them they will tell you. I have. The rest of their concerns are how to extract the maximun amount from their tenants, mostly KSC; witness the contracts that individual tenants have to sign now. I went to KSC and lived with 4 other around '72 before the contracts. Lets talk freedom from exploitation.

Keene is one of the loveliest places in NH no doubt. Bit it could do with some changes. A local council that has both KSC students and townspeople for one.

Most likely a good thing. “Attract[ing] industry” by the government usually means legal and fiscal favoritism for corporations and business owners, to everyone else’s detriment. A tax break to attract a power plant or a Walmart means you get screwed harder by government.

Speaking as a frequent pedestrian on Main Street, Keene: It is incumbent on the pedestrian to always make eye contact with drivers, and make sure they are slowing down before stepping out in their path. 

My experience has always been a safe one, and I find that most drivers do have the courtesy to stop, if they see you standing there waiting and looking in their direction.

Of course, when I am driving, I always try to pay close attention to what is going on around me, and be prepared for pedestrians who do not observe good safety habits.  What I do is my responsibility.  What others do is neither my responsibility, nor do I have any business substituting my judgement for theirs.  That is strictly their business.

You can save yourself the expense and not. A change in the local government will not happen without the town council. Learn how it functions and warps the local economy to it's advantage. Otherwise you will just be another mooching flatlander and get nowhere.

Not attracting industry created the situation where "The vast majority of the businesses in Keene are service oriented and pay quite low wages."

If you are looking for a decent paying job had better look elsewhere. There simply is very little industry here.

I trust that the people reading this thread will easily see beyond your negativity and research the situation for themselves.  No doubt they are all looking for something different.  I imagine their definition of "decent" might be different from yours.  The activists that have moved here so far have been able to find work.  There are already plenty of opportunities here and as the area continues to grow, there will only be more.

As an an activist who moved here from a wealthy town on the Florida coast, and had no problem finding work in Keene with what I consider decent pay, I can heartily vouch for this entire statement.

It depends on what kind of resume/experience you have. If you're young (say 18), don't have much experience, don't have much to put on your resume, and don't understand social norms, you should expect to move back to where you came from.
