Smith Hill Reviews

3
My community is very safe and friendly. I live in a residential area that provides diversity and is very family oriented. It is close enough to downtown which makes the commute fairly easy but it is also secluded enough that it can be quiet and remote.

Its okay living in the area I currently live in now. There isn't that many crimes that happens here as opposed to the other parts of Providence. When it comes to the weather and natural disasters things could be better.
I will Add neighborhood watch,cameras and police enforcement.
