The WBNA organizes neighbors and businesses on the West Side of Providence to preserve and promote our diverse, historic, urban community as a safe, vibrant, and sustainable place to be SWELL
(Shop, Work, Eat, Live, and Learn locally).
Another accolade goes to the Asa Messer Elementary School teaching team as the Golden Apple Award was given to third grade teacher Rachel Greenberg, who teaches English Language Learners with humor, high expectations and some music, too. We are grateful to have Ms Greenberg's talents and creative approaches at work in our neighborhood, and thank her for her commitment to west side kids.
The west side now has an independent, locally-owned pharmacy! Dr. Eugenio Fernandez Jr. sees health care as more than prescriptions and diagnoses, and has turned that vision into Asthenis Pharmacy on Cranston Street. Born and raised in our neighborhood, Fernandez shares his story and Asthenis’ mission of health equity in this guest post.
WBNA seeks new or existing businesses to occupy two 989 square foot, ground floor retail spaces at 1577 Westminster Street that are available immediately. While the sunny first floor space was originally built as a small market and café, WBNA welcomes a broad range of commercial uses including shops, start-ups, gallery/studio, or other entities.
