  • Not offended
  • I've addressed this in previous discussions. See reddiquette which says "If you think something contributes to conversation, upvote it. If you think it does not contribute to the subreddit it is posted in or is off-topic in a particular community, downvote it."
  • I do review reports, and I'm not the only one that does so.

Best neighborhoods have been discussed ad nauseam in this sub, do a search and you'll find lots and lots of threads.

If you're going to live in the city, work at Brown, and you have kids - I would suggest living on the east side of Providence (not East Providence which is a different town). Anything in the Wayland Square or Mount Hope area will most likely be good. This is a city, but it feels more like the suburbs on the east side. Crimes of opportunity are everywhere though, all parts of the city - because it is a city still - but overall you will be very safe. You won't find trouble unless you go looking for it. If you leave stuff in your car, visible, expect it to be stolen. Basic common city sense applies anywhere.

As far as schools go, if you're living in Providence you will want private schools, the public schools are terrible. Moses Brown, Wheeler, and Lincoln all usually get high marks, but you will pay big $.

The top public schools in the state are consistently in Barrington and then East Greenwich. You will obviously have to drive into the city for work if you live in one of these towns, but it won't take long at all.

From what I've heard most left leaning people end up in Barrington and EG can be more right leaning. Of course one size does not fit all.

There are a bunch of pick up groups that play outside for fun when the weather is nice. They've all moved indoors now, which is also fun but not free.

I prefer playing indoor on turf, places like Wide World of Indoor Sports, Teamworks, etc.

Isn't Super Fun Activities club indoor on like a basketball court? Imo the fields at teamworks are way better for playing soccer inside.

The State House has one of the four largest, self-supported marble domes in the world.

The largest is St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, the second largest is the Minnesota State Capitol and the third largest is the Taj Mahal in India. On the inside of the dome, there is a wonderful painting, "The Four Freedoms" by Rhode Island artist James Allen King.

.... if you actually like current day Eclipse, than probably not. To me, that's the worst option. I rank them as follows:

  1. Silmo
  2. Autocrat
  3. Dave's

... big gap...

... 4. Eclipse

There are some other lesser known brands out there that fall somewhere after Autocrat for me, but those are the major players afaik.
