PHOTOS: Federal Hill | Eagle Sq. | Valley

Recommended Posts

Actual spring temperatures in Providence today! So I took a walk around my neighbourhood, Federal Hill, walked down to Eagle Square, then along Valley Street and back up to the Hill.

Federal Hill

Setting up, here is downcity Providence from the edge of Federal Hill, looking across I-95. Off to the left is the Westin, centre is the downcity towers, and on the right is the big ass, ugly as hell Holiday Inn.

The Federal Hill Arch is the main entrance to Federal Hill from Downcity Providence.

Nice photos Cotuit. I definitely did not see enough of Providence the last few times I was up that way.

AWESOME photos! Every time I think of Providence I think of how they used SLC to dub for it in Dumb and Dumber.

The apartment complex used in Dumb and Dumber.

SLC doesn't look much like Providence.

It's one of the more expensive neighbourhoods in Providence, but by Northeastern standards it is quite cheap. You can find a one-bedroom for around $550-650 ad 2-bedrooms at about $750 and up. I'm not sure what it would cost to own, there are very few single family homes, and I don't think very many places havve been condo-ized.
