Pawtuxet Village/Edgewood Photo Tour

14 posts in this topic

Took some pictures around my neighborhood today in Pawtuxet and Edgewood. Pawtuxet is a classic little colonial era village with locally-owned businesses, crooked narrow side streets and beautiful old homes. Edgewood is a classic street car suburb with a nice mix of old Victorians and two-three family homes.

Pawtuxet:

The farther north you go the more affordable it gets. These homes sell for around 200,000, with some up to 275,000.

Thanks for all the wonderful pictures. Does Pawtuxet village have any nice restaurants, pubs or shopping? I was also wondering if anyone knew about dock space and how it was rented in that area?

:thumbsup: Thanks for the shots Recchia. I drive through Edgewood and Pawtuxet Village once a week to take my kids to CCD at St. Peter's. The ROW improvements are a nice enhancement for the village.

Pawtuxet has a bunch of little locally-owned businesses. It has a pharmacy (Cameron's), a little market (Lindsay's market), three little coffee shops, including one that sells the tables and chairs that you sit in, all antiques; a one-on-one gym, a Thai restaurant, ice cream shop, cleaners, book store, pet store and a bunch of antique stores. It also has three full service restaurants: Basta (upscale, really good food), L'Attitudes (nice bar, food's okay) and O'Rourkes (open late, has bands and stuff, good summer spot). It's a nice little place with continuous urbanity all the way to downtown Providence. You can pretty much avoid anything south of Pawtuxet in Warwick, it's the only place in the whole city that has any character.

I have to agree. It's a cop out. They built a contemporary shell then wrapped it in a Ye Olde New Englande shell. :sick: Gives contemporary design a bad name.

Looking at it again, I think it's either a duplex or condos. There's two staircases visible through the front and a few garage doors underneath. Nice windows but I agree, it's almost kinda tacky.
