Hi. I just moved into a place on Smith Hill, Radcliffe Street, near Providence College, I am working on a book and the noise situation is making me crazy. Not sure if I will stay. Does anyone know of there are any quieter parts of Providence. I am looking for a pet friendly place, at least one bedroom for 800 or under.

Yeah, I bet it is pretty crazy. PC/RIC are starting back up and the kids are moving back in. The bigest parties are usually the first few weeks. Once class starts up, it will be a little less noisey every night. It will be a little noisey Thur. Fri. and Sat. night though. If you like this area and want a quiet and safe place to live, you may want to look into north providence. I rented a condo on smithfield rd in NP and it was cool.

The quitest sections IN providence are probably the east side in Summit, Blackstone and Wayland Square, and the upper areas of Elmhurst.

Default North Providence

Is Smithfield Road suburban or is there stuff to do in North Providence besides shopping at Walmart? I am not big on the burbs, though peace and quiet would be nice. Thanks.

North Providence is pretty suburban, though it's dense suburban. Mineral Spring Ave is backed up end to end daily during rush hour and has lot's of little strip malls. The housing is mostly single family on small lots with some multi's and condos thrown in here and there.

Smithfield Avenue on the Providence/Pawtucket line has some quiet neighborhoods around it you might look into. You would be close to the city and especially the eastside but pay a lot less.

I live in Eastside Providence by Wayland Sq. and it is much quieter than I expected, especially with all the students around (Brown Univ.). I would recommend it, and i'm sure you could find a one bedroom for $800 in the area.

Provguy is pretty much right on, (mineral spring and route 44 have some decent spots) but dont forget North Providence is only two or three miles away from the area you are in now. I figured you liked being near the elmhurst area without living near all the college kids. Maybe take a ride by if you get a chance. The east side is pretty cool though.
