"It's like everything converges here"
Davis Square is one of those place where so many streets converge that it literally looks like an octopus on a map. The neighborhood mixes new and old and is home to many students and younger professional couples. It has a gay population as well as working class folks, and is often on lists as one of the hippest places to live in the U.S. There’s a very diverse selection of shops and the arts - both performing and visual - are evident in the many galleries and theatrical venues. It may be a major intersection but it has become one of the priciest areas in Boston.
