About Somerville

Somerville, the northern neighbor to Cambridge, MA, has managed to hold onto its blue-collar roots, while at the same time gentrifying. However, there are plans in motion to extend Boston's Green Line through Somerville, which has caused a recent increase in property values and rent prices which are shaking things up (in good and not-so-good ways).
