Somerville Weathers the Storm

February 10, 2013


There’s something magical about walking through the city when there are no cars on the streets. On Saturday afternoon, I joined my friends and neighbors as we dug ourselves out of our homes, shoveled out our cars, and met up in Union Square to play in the snow, make snow sculptures, and dance. In Union […]

Thinking about the “Evolution of Davis Square” check out this recent article in Boston Magazine. It looks at businesses in Davis […]

Somerville Historic Preservation

April 25, 2011


This past weekend a dear friend of mine from NYC and her little sister from Las Vegas came to stay with me in Somerville. They were here to visit colleges but we also had time to enjoy the beautiful spring weather and see some of “my” Somerville. On Friday, we had brunch at Renee’s Cafe […]
