What neighborhoods should I visit in Providence?

I have the chance to visit Providence and would like to check out some neighborhoods as potential places to live. I like the East Side, though I'm interested in recommendations of areas where it's still possible to buy a single-family home for $250k or so. [more inside]

Should I move to Providence, RI, to save on rent, or somewhere else?

I've lived in Boston for several years and would love to stay if it were not for the fact that I need to live alone for my mental health but only make 40k annually. I have heard from several friends that Providence is like a "mini Boston" with cheaper rent and I'm strongly considering moving. On my salary, would I actually be able to live alone, are rising rents there making this a pipe dream, or should I expand my horizons? [more inside]

On the platform at TF'Green, tired not_on_display waits, dreaming...

I'm landing at TF Green (PVD) on a Saturday at 9AM. I'd assumed the MBTA Commuter Rail would run from TF Green to Providence ... turns out, yeah, but not on Saturdays! So, what's the next best/cheapest way for someone fresh off the red-eye on a Saturday morning to get from TF Green to Providence Station? Thanks! (Also, my condolences about your Mayor-for-life's term limit being up.)

How big is the RISD museum?

My beloved and I are heading to Providence tomorrow for a day trip. How big is the RISD museum? Is it a 1 1/2 hour museum or a day-long museum? For comparison, we're pretty familiar with the Boston MFA or the Gardner or the Frick.

visiting Providence RI

My wife and I will be visiting Providence, RI next week for a long weekend getaway. We're up for any suggestions of how to spend some time. I'm particularly interested in certain sections of town I may want to visit as well as restaurant suggestions. And heck, anything I don't know about would be mighty cool as well.
