Above is one of the coolest videos in the history of coolest videos: a simulation of the epic Green Line extension through Somerville into Medford. Of course, such epic-ness comes at a potential cost, namely rising apartment rents along the new line that are sure to displace long-time, lower-income tenants.

And, hey, don't miss your stop!
