  1. I'd like to echo Recchia and throw in my support for living near the Providence/Pawtucket line at the top of Blackstone. I've lived here almost a year and I've felt safe in my neighborhood and love the proximity of the Blackstone path. There are a number of good restaurants within walking distance and a Shaw's grocery store I walk to sometimes (although that I would only do in daylight) as N. Main can be sketchy after dark. The rest of Providence is an easy trip down N. Main, Hope, or Blackstone Blvd depending on whether you want to end up downcity, Thayer/Wickendon, or Wayland, respectively. Almost everyone on my block has a dog, although the nearest dog parks seem to be the one behind Hope High and Rainbow Park at the other end of Blackstone. Lippett park is right near me and there are lots of dogs - just not off-leash. Warning: these neighborhoods are pretty quiet and there is NOTHING in the way of nearby 'nightlife'. The pubs on Hope are within walking distance, but they don't stay open that late. Best of luck with the move!
  2. Hello, I am sorry to do this, but I vaguely remember a post that mentioned a decent coffee shop that has free internet . . . after searching around for the post for days I still can't find it. Was I delusional? I need a place to work on my writing and Starbucks (while perfectly fine) is a bit cliche. Cotuit, please delete this whole topic if I'm being completely redundant. cheers, Emily
  3. Amazing as usual You seem to be at your best when you're finding the beauty in that which most overlook.
  4. Hello! I just wanted to thank everyone who gave me valuable input/advice on how to find a place to live while I'm on internship starting in July. I found a cute furnished house for me and my roommate; it's located near the junction of Blackstone Blvd and Hope which is very convenient. Thanks especially to Cotuit and Garris! -Emily
  5. Cotuit - I like the photos. Tight streets might make for tough commercial area street shots (as Garris has commented on), but they're perfect for the "aisle of cards" signage you have shown us.
  6. Thanks ML! I will be in Providence this weekend to find an abode for the coming year -- my camera will be at my side so perhaps I can actually post a Providence photo to the Providence Photo forum! For now though, here's another shot taken in Chicago.
  7. Here goes nothing! This is the view from my apartment facing southeast-ish toward the Hancock building. Thanks Cotuit! I used photobucket. Enjoy your new camera. -Em
  8. I have the photos posted to an msn group website and I attempted to use the IMG code button to add the location. I got an error message and then suddenly it had posted my "reply". Now, I'm guessing I screwed up and hit something that posted it, but I'm not sure how to get around the error message about "dynamic tags" not being allowed.
  9. [Anyone seen Napolean Dynamite?] Gosh! I'm a freakin' IDIOT! sorry, I promise never to attempt to post with a photo inserted again.
  10. Hi Garris, I have a few photos of Chicago that I took recently (you inspired me to break out my new digital camera - only two months old). I feel like an idiot, but I'm not sure how to insert them. Do I need to have them posted on a website first? -Emily
  11. Are you trying to make me cry? Thanks - better to be shocked now than unable to pay the heat bill next winter.
  12. Thanks for the reality check. And for the tips.
  13. Oh, and Cotuit, I hope you really were joking!
