Providence, Newport, and CT/NY

My wife, baby son, and I took a quick trip to Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York City in September. We enjoyed some delicious food, great beer, and sights over a couple of days.

The second most-hated plane in the United States.


Providence






















Newport




The Newport boat show was going on the week we visited.


The low-income housing in Newport.












Two Roads Brewing, Connecticut.




New York!

Nice shots of New England. Two Roads is a great brewery.

Awesome pics, and Two Roads is good stuff.

Did you get to try any Harpoon or Buzzards Bay?

I was expecting some decent skyline shots from Providence and Newport but...

Nice pictures, other than the plane.

I know of Newport's incredible building stock, but I have to explore some of historic Providence some time.

SSP needed a picture of a chandelier which reminds one that H.P. Lovecraft lived and wrote in Providence. We just didn't know we needed it until now.

Nice shots! It is almost comical how underrated Providence is. It's such a fantastic little city!

And yes, Providence is fantastic. Super walkable, multiple neighborhoods outside of downtown with bustling, active street life (someone needs to do photo threads on Thayer Street, Gano, PC, and Federal Hill), lots of cultural amenities cities and metros 2-3x its size lack, and a dense, intact, thriving Northeastern downtown. Federal Hill is the most authentic Little Italy left IMO, moreso than the North End and possibly moreso than the NYC Italian hoods I admittedly am not on top of. There's also a funky vibe from all the RISD and Johnson & Wales students (and Brown, I guess ) that oddly comes across stronger than you get in Boston, despite Boston having a much higher volume and density of students. Thayer Street is funkier than Huntington Ave. Providence (city and metro) is the most Portuguese area of the country, and this is deliciously reflected in the restaurant, bakery, and grocer landscape.

People like to say Providence is a mini-Boston; that's not wrong, but it also does Providence a disservice by not letting its uniqueness come through.
