Why does everyone think this city is so small? A metro pop. of 1.3 million puts it in the same league as New Orleans, Louisville, Buffalo, Calgary and Edmonton yet all these cities have much larger skylines. Edmonton and Louis. have only two buildings taller than Prov.'s tallest, and Buffalo only one, but, according to Emporis, Ed. has 226 (completed) buildings, Louis. has 56, and Buffalo 71 while Prov. only has 28. I understand the argument about its proximity to Boston, but Hamilton is just as close to Toronto, and even it has a larger skyline (105 completed buildings) with a metro pop. of only 700k. Its tallest building is 3m shorter than Prov's though.

Despite its puny size, I do like the skyline's density, seaside setting, and historic charm, so I'll be generous with a 5.5. I also love that N.E. style of coure

Actually, Providence has a metro population of over 1.6 million under the new MSA guidelines. The metro includes all of Rhode Island and Bristol County, MA. It's in the same league as Milwaukee, Columbus, Indy, and San Antonio.

With a total of only 1601 square miles land area, the Providence Metro is one of America's most dense at over 1000 people per square mile.

I was passing by Providence last year and well, I found it pretty boring, feeling of gray-sadness

Is't there a God Hates Fags site on the internet for people like you?

"Is't there a God Hates Fags site on the internet for people like you?"

Has absolutely nothing to do with religion at all. I'm a political moderate just to the right of the middle. I was just being as stereotypical as the poster who trashed Birmingham and said how he hated Birmingham and Alabama after admitting to not having ever been to either place. The poster cast judgements on the place based on every tired stereotyped passed on as fact for years by elitists like himself. He was on here gushing over how great Providence was. The pictures aren't impressive in my humble opinion. Shocking that a lib would turn a less than gushing opinion of a city in the all knowing Northeast into a hate crime.

P.S. Isn't there a Reagan/Bush is responsible for hurricanes and heart disease site for you?

So you were being just as stereotypical to prove a point? That makes you guilty of what you are accusing the "elitist" of being. You are a conservative who is passive aggressive. A political moderate would never make the last statement about Bush. Dead giveaway. Providence is a nice city and so is Birmingham IMO.

Sort of. I'm not a W fan if that's what you mean. My comment about Reagan was in the vain of a funny SNL skit where Bush Sr. kept popping up in disguise during a debate b/w Gore and W. In that skit, a Gore supporter asked Gore about taking us back to that terrible time when Reagan was responsible for creating AIDS and homelessness. As ridiculous as that comment in that skit was, some libs probably do blame him.

I didn't want to make this a political thing. The guy's stereotypical comments just pissed me off and I had to respond.

it seems pretty dense in the downtown (just not vertical) and because it has risd, onbe of the best art schools in the country, i'm sure it has a very active arts and culture scene, which makes it better. Also it is close to boston, ny, and the ocean

You're dead wrong about this. While Providence has an extremely weak/short skyline, it has some stunning buildings. The overall style and architectural context of the city is very attractive. The historical housing stock is some of the best in the country.

Haha ... you are actually correct about this. I'm sure that will piss people off, but it's true.
