After I left that comment, I checked the real estate there out of curiosity and it's ALL new construction. It never really made sense to me that there's a place so sparsely populated so close to really dense areas, including Providence.

Two major points against Hebner, who empirically should probably be the first ref inducted:

  1. He was fired for essentially stealing and reselling WWE merchandise, and
  2. He joined the 2016 class-action lawsuit against WWE over concussions, which so far has kept all participants out of the Hall of Fame

This changes things a lot. I would say that besides Rehoboth in Massachusetts (which may be worth looking into), Rhode Island is your only real option if you want more of a rural environment while being in easy commuting distance to Providence.

It got a lot of news coverage last year. There was a bit of a trend. Obviously if you go ride the New York City subway you are statistically incredibly unlikely to get pushed onto the tracks, but it happened a few times and everyone got very paranoid about it.

They have physical locations in Smith Hill in Providence and Oakland Beach in Warwick (though that one isn't listed on their website, so I don't know if it's open anymore). But I know them better for their trucks, which always seem to be there when what you really want is a Del's. They're just not as good, not sweet enough, slushiness isn't right, no chunks of lemon.
