Providence Gay Neighborhoods
Providence, Rhode Island, is one of the oldest cities in the country. It’s the third-largest city in the New England area, too, and is home to almost 180,000 people. Providence sits on the Providence River and is home to many amazing examples of architecture in addition to historical sights. While the city was once called the Beehive of industry, today the focus has shifted to the arts and education.
Of course, the arts community and the LGBT community often overlap, and that’s true in Providence. The city’s downtown area is definitely the center of Providence’s LGBT lifestyle. This area has undergone revitalization in recent years, leading to the creation of new businesses, attractions, and cafes.
Thinking about buying a condo in downtown Providence? Prices range from $75,000 to $2.250 million. Unfortunately, that may be your only option for living in the area—there are very few single-family homes available in downtown Providence.
