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 be able to have an impact.

The West Side has a strong noticeable sense of community, I know most of my neighbors and everyone knows my name!

Knight Street, 10 years in the neighborhood
The West Side feels like a neighborhood. Soon after moving here I learned what a big impact you can make in a neighborhood, city and state of this size. My sense of connection and community deepened when we had children. There's so much support here for raising kids, in the neighborhood and in the City. I also love old houses. The sense of place here is astounding.
