Charming is the right word indeed. And it has a really impressive skyline for a city with a population of 'just' 172.000. Really nice city. Greetings from the Netherlands!

Oh my God, I'm in shock. I was expecting something completely different!

Some of those buildings are stunning and the city has a lot of character!

You know...I always thought Providence's downtown was nothing because the city is so overshadowed by Boston being so close. I didn't realize how dense and how urban providence's city center is! And the buildings have a lot of character. I love cities with mostly old buildings when they are well-preserved such as Providence.

Very charming city indeed. Providence looks very easy on the eye and also appears to be very pedestrian friendly..

Really great photos. I was also pretty surprised by these photos. I knew that Providence was a charming, clean city, but these pictures make it look a lot larger and more vibrant than I was expecting. Thanks for sharing.

Cool pics. Providence is a nice city, love the architecture.

It looks like Hartford, except with a larger collection of older buildings and a more lively downtown.
