Alex Prie, a coordinator at , recently shared an interesting blog post.
The post, on colorlines.com, a site that writes about racism, suggests that wealthier neighborhoods have more trees, and to illustrate the point it compares Google satellite images of neighborhoods in San Francisco, Chicago, Oakland and Boston.
The two Boston neighborboods included in the post are Somerville and West Cambridge.
Based on the satellite images, it looks like the Somerville neighborhood included in the post is the area around Ball Square, as you can see and the facility in the eastern part of the image.
It's hard to tell which neighborhood in West Cambridge we're looking at, but it definitely has more trees.
The post then compares estimated 2009 median incomes in Somerville and West Cambridge: $69,471 and $115,798, respectively, according to the post.
