How would you describe Somerville in the 1980s?

Family friendly, everyone knew one another. Kids could walk everywhere even to "playdates".

Somerville is like a mini Harvard Square, especially the area where I grew up. Its very yuppy now and has lots of trendy bars, restaurants and coffee shops.

How has Somerville changed?

Somerville has changed since 1980. The major factor was the addition of the Davis Square T stop.
