What is your earliest Somerville memory?

Walking down to Davis Square with my grandmother almost everyday.

How would you describe Somerville in the 1980s?

Somerville was friendly. We used to sit out on the porch across from Tufts Field and watch what was going on. There were always people around. It was easy to walk and get to your local corner store or any of the squares. Traffic was kind of a pain but it was nice being able to run around with your friends and not worry as much as we do today.

How would you describe Somerville today?

I would say Somerville has improved. It has become much more of a college town. The buildings and businesses are artsy and eclectic and its a really nice place to visit and get involved.

How has Somerville changed?

It has changed for the better I think.
