Willow Street, 20+ years in the neighborhood
The exquisite sense of community, the civic involvement, the diversity, the historic architecture, the small businesses, the preservation and sustainability ethic, and the fact that we have a gigantic castle in the Cranston Street Armory, the 9 acre Dexter Training Ground. Plus the size of our city and neighborhood enables us all to have an impact.
Sycamore Street, 25+ year West Side resident
The West Side has a strong noticeable sense of community, I know most of my neighbors and everyone knows my name!
Knight Street, 11 years in the neighborhood
The West Side feels like a neighborhood. Soon after moving here I got involved, and learned what a big impact civic engagement can have in a neighborhood, city and state of this size. My sense of connection and community deepened when we had children; there's a lot of support here in the city and neighborhood for raising kids. I also love old houses, and think the sense of place here is astounding.
