MBTA:
At present, rail transit serves periphery points of Somerville: to the northwest, Davis Square on the Red Line and to the southeast, Sullivan Square on the Orange Line at the border with Charlestown, providing easy access to Harvard Square and to downtown Boston. A new Orange Line station is under construction near the Assembly Square Mall in eastern Somerville, between the existing Sullivan and Wellington stations.

Somerville's industrial past left behind many legacies, including the invention of Fluff by Archibald Query. In 1914, the city became the home of the original Economy Grocery Store, which later grew into the Stop & Shop grocery chain. Two related food service chains, Steve's Ice Cream and Bertucci's, sprung from adjacent lots in Davis Square. In 2006, the town was named the best run city in Massachusetts by the Boston Globe. The city later received the 2009 All-America City Award.  When you are in Somerville stop by Taza Chocolate Factory for a tour and some free samples!

Notable Neighbors:
Jack Parker, head coach of the Boston University Terriers hockey team since 1973.
Archibald Query, inventor of Fluff.
Winter Hill Gang, noted crime group.
