Welcome back to Neighborhood Style Showdown, our quest to determine Boston's most stylish neighborhood.
Just a week ago we propositioned you, our in-the-know Racked readers, which neighborhood had the best collective sense of style. You voted; we charted the progress. Now, after several rounds of matching up swanky districts and alternative ones, you have selected Davis Square as the most stylish residents. Sure, this was unexpected, especially with the ever alluring South End as its final contender—but doesn't that speak to the uproar from the outer reaches of the Boston area? We are certainly seeing changes across the River, and you believe they warrant bragging rights.
Do you think Davis, the underdog, deserves this crown? What do you hope evolves in Somerville in the coming months? Sound off in the comments.
