Hills, Spills, Villes and Plain, Old Beacon Hill: Hub Redefined

Take a gander at the above map from Dan Wasserman at Architecture Boston. It chops up Boston and bordering areas into various "ills" based upon (we assume) their different attributes. For instance, student-drenched Allston becomes "Beerspill" and biotech-heavy Kendall Square becomes "Pill Mill" and tony Back Bay becomes "Fullfilled." And I-93? That's "Standstill."
