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 […]

Leave it to Somerville. Tomorrow the city will host not one but two snow day parties! You can join the fun in Davis Square with Snowmandito, organized by Banditos Misteriosos at noon at Seven Hills Park near the T station.

Somerville Loves Urban Gardening!

June 26, 2012


Morse Kelley Playground is my neighborhood park. An easy 5 minute walk from my house, I’ve played basketball there and I’ve been¬†that neighbor who calls 311 when the court lights are out or the nets are down. A couple years ago I heard that the park was going to be renovated and that a new […]

Somerville Ave and Shop-A-Palooza!

November 30, 2010


Have you noticed how festive Somerville Ave looks these days? Between the new paving job (much appreciated by cyclists let me tell you!), the brick paver crosswalks, the fancy granite curbs, the lovely “period” street lamps, and the spiffy new hanging baskets of evergreens and ribbon, it’s looking pretty good! The evergreens look so nice […]

Summer, Central, Broadway, Temple: Driving in Circles Around Somerville

October 13, 2010


I’m told all the time that visitors to Somerville have a hard time navigating around the city. (Maybe locals do too but we’re less likely to admit it.) I have family and friends who live outside the city who steadfastly refuse to drive to my house by any route other than the one they’ve been […]
