From the poor, to the middle class, to the rich, straits can be seen in housing, lifestyle and personal choices.

Nantucket, this Boston Globe article implies, was seen as foreclosure proof; but it appears nothing is safe from a recession.

When I was traveling through New England the Spring and Summer of 07, I spent a considerable amount of time on the Cape, and later in Wood's Hole and Martha's Vineyard.

I reckon that while little has changed, visually, in this part of our American landscape, with its dependence on tourism for more than 50% of its livelihood, times will be tough for this and many other US vacation treasures.
