Since I moved to Providence, I’ve admired its beautiful network of zebra crosswalks.
During the little free time Dad and I managed to carve out while apartment hunting, we decided to get out of Providence and see a bit more of Rhode Island.
When I move, I can’t wait to continue exploring the rest of Providence. As someone who grew up in a midsize city, I find the place totally fascinating. About 40,000 fewer people live in Providence proper than in Kitchener, Ontario (my hometown), but Providence is also about 3 times denser.
Last week, my dad and I travelled back to Providence, RI to find me housing for the Fall. Emma and I both had our hearts set on finding a place in Federal Hill, Providence’s “Little Italy,” and we were lucky enough to find a perfect place nearby.
At the beginning of November, Emma (my girlfriend) and I went on a grand tour of New England and New York so I could visit campuses and talk to folks about grad school, and so Emma could speak to people about working in the publishing industry.
