Smith Hill is a wonderful neighborhood and so close to downtown. Close to schools, shopping and restaurants, yet quiet. Public transportation is everywhere, but so easy to walk to most things I need.

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.
