Upper South Providence Reviews

South Providence is a residential area in Providence, RI. I frequently hear gunshots nearby, but honestly it could be worse. I would say it's about average for a part of town in poverty and not well taken care of. Nothing bad has ever happened to me here and I live on a cute residential street with lots of trees and old houses. Could be better, but like I said.. could be worse

They are a lot of different kinds of food and drink places around my area. Mostly people tend to go eat is Chinese food, pizza, and frozen yogurt.
The stores that I live around mostly have what I need at the time but most of the the time they don't. That's where big companies come on I wish they were some around me because it's annoying not having the things you need around you or walking distance.
