Streams[edit]

The hydrography here makes little sense to me:

The town lies at the confluence of Green River into the Hoosac River. Several other brooks emanate from both, spreading out through town.

Surely the brooks don't emanate from the Green and Hoosac? Wouldn't it be more accurate to say that several other tributary brooks pass through the town before reaching their confluences with the Green and Hoosac rivers? We could perhaps just delete the sentence about the brooks altogether--they seem like a fairly minor detail. 65.213.77.129 (talk) 14:49, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

Postcard images[edit]

Do all of the Berkshire County city and towns really need to have the "old school" postcards all over their pages? Makes them seem antiquated and trapped in history and loses what they are all about today Lecollye (talk)

I like the historic images, personally. They're quite attractive. And it's hard to deny that the Berkshires' historic prettiness constitutes one of the region's most significant present-day economic assets. It's an asset that's somewhat intangible and hard to quantify, but not hard to illustrate. 65.213.77.129 (talk) 14:49, 28 April 2009 (UTC)

They are nice, but all but one photo on the Williamstown page is at least 90 years old. Except for the main photo (which shows a few buildings), you really don't know what the town looks like now. And that's what I, a visitor to the page, want to learn. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.169.105.213 (talk) 05:31, 21 December 2010 (UTC)

Comment left in article[edit]

Goh Chok Tong, prime minister of Singapore for 14 years, might be added to the Williams College "notables" list. Mr. Goh was Singapore's second prime minister and remains active in the city-state's affairs today (2015). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.164.36.107 (talk) 10:40, 14 January 2015‎ (UTC)

This article is about the town, and not about Williams College. Goh Chok Tung is included in List of Williams College people. BMK (talk) 19:03, 14 January 2015 (UTC)
