Hey pal, I lived in RI for many years before crossing the border to CT. Believe me, I felt safer having my kids grow up here than in RI, especially the Blackstone Valley area, than anywhere else.

Now that's the end of the story.

OK, really, who would want the commute if you didn't need it?? Especially in the winter! Yikes! There are plenty of areas to live AROUND Providence, keep your commute to a minimum (or use public transportation--now there's a thought!) and be safe. Barrington is only 15 minutes away and are you really telling me that the Blackstone Valley schools are better?
Plus...Warwick?? Really?? I thiink if there was any crime in Warwick, I could take them out with an aerosol can and a lighter.
Not to mention the fact, you move to RI to be close to the water. Why would you want to put yourself a good hour away from the beach? Increase your driving time again?
Just my two cents--not like anyone was asking.

I'm not saying that the Blackstone Valley schools are better than the ones in Barrington. By all means, Barrington is a much wealthier community than any of the town that make up the BV.

Whatever....

They just told me they would work on it. Funny, I haven't heard about any breaks in the case, yet

Cranston was the 25th safest city in America last year. But honestly, I'm still waiting to see some statistics from the other side on this about how out of control Rhode Island's overall crime rate is.

*crickets*

That's what I thought.

Hi guys! I just needed some last minute advice. Here is the question: Im thinking about renting from "Landings" in middletown and was just wondering if anyone had an horror stories or good referrals from that place. Im just about to sign the paperwork and just wanted to make sure this isnt too good to be true. Its about $1900 a month but ALL utilities except cable and internet is included and has a private backyard which I absolutely need for my two dogs and its about 1600 square feet which is enough for us to move around in. Is it too good to be true? Is the backyard absolutely tiny? Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hmm, are those the places on Lake Erie Street? They are allright I guess but certainly nothing much to write home about. The backyards are fenced in I believe, you get a little shed and enough lawn to park four cars on if you'd be so inclined. $1900 seems a bit steep for those, utilities or not. How long's the lease term?

I think your right. Im glad you wrote back and reconfirmed my thoughts. Im pushing the limits now, I have until the 8th of August to find something now, lol. Thats ok. There are plenty of places around that price range Im sure I can find (Im trying to stay positive). Its just a hard to find a place when I cant view it. Ahhh, very irritating. Thanks Germanspy.

They are small. The area used to be 100% Navy Housing.
