Before I moved to Brookline, I used to take the blue line (MBTA) from Revere, on occasion. Its a city with a small beach/waterfront that has a reputation of being fairly tough. Kelly's Roast Beef is one of its claims to fame - sort of. Alot of "Jersey Shore" types...definitely a place you don't want to be hanging out late at night if you are not from there. The MBTA also has stops at Suffolk Downs (racetrack) so you could say that the area is, ah...somewhat...connected if you know what I mean.
Revere women were often referred to as girls with "big hair"...especially back in the 80s and early 90s.
Much like many cities that are on the outskirts of Boston (proper), like Somerville, Winthrop, Chelsea, etc., there is a mixture of people from various ethnic backgrounds.
Or, in shorthand: Revere is a blue-collar town with a heavily ethnic makeup, but students and young professionals live there, too, because the rent is cheaper.
