"On the hippest places to live lists"

East Somerville is a wonderful mix if Irish-Americans and Italian Americans along with college students. It makes for a vibrant and eclectic atmosphere that often makes the hippest places to live lists. It’s got a thriving arts community, a big coffeehouse scene, and many mom and pop type businesses all around the Assembly Square area. Even though densely populated, there are many greenspaces and parks along with bike paths making it livable and accessible for all. Easy access to the huge Assembly Square Mall and the Fellway path along The Charles add to its attraction.
