South Elmwood Reviews

The area is not bad or anything, but the roads are what messes up a lot of nice area. The people are good to get to know and the weather is nothing to complain about because we never get anything to serious. i would live here again if giving the choice to do so. If they would fix the street better, the area will improve.

The roads are the big problem with many here. Other than that the police react fast and crime is about average for any city.
my street is okay, but Providence in general, for the working class person making under $30,000. a year leaves a lot to be desired. If you make a huge salary and live on the Upper east side of the city then it is a great place to live.
