Our pals at Curbed L.A. have hilariously updated an already unintentionally hilarious 1985 San Francisco Chronicle quiz called "Has your neighborhood become 'upscale'?" (A "unisex hair salon," for instance, earns your nabe five points and a video-rental outfit gets it two.) The updated gentrification quiz is applicable to areas in South Boston and Somerville (and maybe even Everett, too). Find out if your neighborhood is, indeed, becoming upscale.
If your neighborhood scores 10 points or more, then, yup, it's gentrifying.
