A guy named Ken has an awesome photo of one of my favorite places in America. I once watched 6 hours of a 24 hour Rocky & Bullwinkle film festival with my sister and dad at The Somerville Theater there. My grandmother (Nana Rainy) lives in a 3-story brownstone about 50 yards away from the T stop in Davis Square. Davis Square is also only two stops away from one of my other favorite places in America: Harvard Square.
