Moving to Somerville, MA - what should I know?

OK, Loungers, I'm relocating to Somerville for partner's job. Someone must know something.

It’s not Cambridge, but it’s close.

It used to where people lived who couldn’t afford Boston.

It’s not Cambridge or Boston, but it’s getting to be as expensive as those cities. OP, you’ll have plenty to do, lots of culture at your doorstep, and the T continues to expand so you don’t have to drive everywhere. In the 70s, Somerville was kind of a joke but it’s pretty upscale now. There may be parts that are lagging in the race to gentrification but mostly it’s a good place to live.

What neighborhood are you moving to? Near Davis Square? Or…?

Somerville was always known as working-class town outside of Boston. There's a huge population of Greeks there, who came and settled in America during the 30s - 70s and gave Somerville generations of entrepeneurs. You will find an ample supply of Greek restaurants, pizza parlors and bakeries, as well as Greek property owners and merchants. (Shirtless Greek men who look like Adonis are always a plus in my book).

In Somerville all seems to breathe freedom and peace and to make one forget the world and its sad turmoils.
