I love Providence. I was born in Boston but I still consider Providence my home. It's a small yet homely town. Nothing is too far away and the people here are fun lively people (for the most part). There are so many difference races and ethnicities in the city, it's beautiful. I love my little city!

Your level of safety depends where you are. However, I don't consider anywhere in Providence particularly unsafe or more dangerous than any other place in Rhode Island or even America.
