  1. Anyone know what's going on around Cushing street on the East Side by Brown?
  2. Cotuit, is there a policy or a rule about placing advertising on this site? I'm selling my condo and thought this might be a nice place to post given the traffic this site gets for info on living in and moving to Providence. Thanks
  3. great idea PVDJack, turbines would be a nice addition - although I don't know where the best place would be for them. As far as the RISD solar house goes, it will not be right next to the river from everything I've heard. It will likely end up just down hill from the Woods Gerry building on the corner of Prospect and meeting. Apparently RISD made a space which is closer to the corner of Angel and Congdon but I'm not really sure.
  4. Anyone know whats burning? I saw a large amount of smoke rising from around the Jefferson Apts area (guessing) when I came into work this morning. I suppose it could be the fruit market building but I really have know idea
  5. I realize this might be a tall order but I don't get the ProJo and I can't find on their website a copy of the picture they have on the cover of the Rhode Island section today. It's this crazy shot of a stranded car in cranston with water almost up to the windows. If someone could scan it and share it with all of us, that'd be sweet
  6. Just saw some of the deepest water I've ever seen in PVD. I'd guess there was 8-10 inches in some places on the streets. Obviously in the low lying places only but still very impressive. On a few streets I couldn't see under a single car - the water was a couple inches above the bottom of the door sill. Rapids were everywhere too... anyone got a kayak?
  7. I will add one thing though with regards to police presence and action on the East Side as well as Downtown/city, I've lived here since 1984 and I have never even heard of someone getting a DUI. I work with students frequently from Brown and RISD and I ask everyone I can if they have even heard of this happening and to date not a singe "yes." Do people get DUIs anywhere in this city? It certainly has nothing to do with the idea that people don't drink and drive. I see people on a regular basis doing between 50 and 70 mph down benefit street as bars/clubs get out swerving all over the place and occaisionally hitting parked cars or our "beloved" "gas" street lights.
  8. I completely agree with you, Garris. Tickets happen all over Providence.
  9. Cotuit, you are correct about Tazza having internet. It's free too!!
  10. wow frankie, thats a bummer. What if anything do you have for spyware/virus scanners. There are some good free ones that can clean this sort of thing up but you may have a more serious problem on your hands. If you don't have anything give Adaware a try (can find through a google search and its free) but do it in conjunction with something else like Spybot search and Destroy (also free) Run one then the other with the latest updates, then select Adaware to run on startup, restart and hope for the best. If nothing improves try sending me a message so we don't force everyone else here to follow along. Good luck.
  11. No problem at all. Same for all the others I know who have downloaded it. What 's wrong with your computer?
  12. For those interested in one of the coolest things on the internet try this link and download the first option. If you like google maps and want to see something that blows it out of the water you will want to see this. http://desktop.google.com/download/earth/index.html
  13. Don't know many details but at least the top floor of the Art Bar building in the Jewlery District is about to be converted to condos. I'll try to find out more on the future of the bar but demo upstairs is days away.
  14. While it's not in Providence, here are some events within reach by public transport. http://www.gonewport.com/whattodo/august.htm Check out the whole list but the JVC Jazz fest is a huge deal for those into the scene and may help you cool off as it's usually about 10 degrees cooler in Newport. RIPTA offers cheap ferry service from Providence and a word of advice if you're renting a car- do not drive to Newport unless you care more about the ride there and back. Ferry's way better and drops off right in downtown Newport. I realize you're looking around PVD but thought I might mention these anyway - it can make for a great afternoon.
