"Older Neighborhood, a little noisy and lot of traffic, used as a cut through."
This is an older neighborhood that I feel offers not much for people other than a fairly low crime rate. The freeway is not readily accessible from any central points of the center of town. Prices for apartments and homes based on what you get I believe is over priced and under in amenities. Most people stick to themselves and do not make friends easily. There are the few that do, but most do not. There are local eateries, gas stations, doctors, utilities and schools. The school system is not too bad, not as high as some areas but good all in all. Local library with use of computers and free parking. Local government leaves a bit to be desired at times. The enforcers are usually friendly. There is still some of the old buddy mentality in some areas. You do not see a lot of manacured yards. there are some, but more have none than have from what I have seen. Streets could be kept cleaner once the snow is gone. No one needs all that dirt in their front room or elsewhere. Fairly close access to two malls and a huge theatre/cinema. Good pharmacy access and Wal-Mart, dollar stores, ice cream stands, bakeries and small breakfast restaurants. As opposed to living in Providence which is the city, then it is a decent area to live and raise kids. I think there are better areas for kids. If it is adults then it is a good area to live. There is always one rotten neighbor in all neighborhoods and this is no exception. There are a few punks also, but not too bad. The Police Dept., Town Hall, Fire Dept., and registry are all located in the center of town for easy access. Cost of living/rentals/mortgage is high for what you get in this area, my opinion. High traffic area and used as a cut through. Many going way too fast and it is a wonder when someone is going to get hit situation. Television is next to non-existant in this area if you do not have cable or dish tv or the like. Internet access is not too bad if it is not dial-up. Dial-up is very slow, you get bumped a lot and the pages take forever to load. Would I refer people to live in this area, only if they could not go where they really wanted to live. Not much for trees and such, pretty much all built with a few factories from the 1800's also. Traffic can get bogged down due to it is only a two lane road throughout most of West Warwick.The kids in the neighborhood are more likely to be friendly than the adults. It is like eveyone distrusts everyone or something. You may get a hi how are you if lucky, but not much else. I will be thrilled when I have reached the point of being able to move from here.
