How would you describe Somerville in the 1980s?

Somerville in the 80's was much different. Blue collar working class, lots of families. More diners, less restaraunts etc.

How would you describe Somerville today?

I think the movement of a great deal of younger professionals into the area and the housing boom which has created more condos out of three familly houses has really changed the neighborhood. I like how it has changed but still a nice mix of old and new.
