Rhode Island

I might will relocate to Rhode Island/ Mass in end of Nov or Dec. I do not know anyone in RI and know absolute nothing about the area! If anyone know anything about RI please let me know..  I would like to find a safe and nice area to move to. Thanks

Hi there! My name is Heather...sometimes referred to as Boston Heather to differentiate :) I found your journal through J and DM.

I actually live in SE Mass and work in Providence, so I would be happy to be a resource if you need information. Feel free to email me at sorayas_bliss@yahoo.com with any questions. I am wicked busy these days, but I am happy to help if I can.

Best wishes with planning your move!
Hi Heather,

I am glad you found me in here.. I saw your profile and saw that you live in Fall River. I ve checked out that town before.. seems like a nice town.. what is the driving time from there to Boston and west warwick? My gf possibility job is in west warwick. I want to be close to boston since I will be going there frequent to visit my friends and maybe a job there. I have to run for now.. I definiately will email you soon. Pleasure to meet you. Jeena
Hi Jeena,

I actually moved from Fall River, but I'm not that far away. If you are trying to find a place that is convenient to both W. Warwick and Boston, you probably want to be somewhere near Attleboro, MA. I am happy to chat with you more about it sometime. If you have to work in Boston, the key will be to find a place near the commuter rail. There are stations in Providence and Attleboro. (www.mbta.com) The drive to Boston each day would be terrible with traffic, so I wouldn't recommend that. Providence is a nice city though and has a decent job market. If you want, let me know what you are looking for job-wise and I will email you with suggestions of where to look.

Talk to you later,
Heather

Good morning,

Ok I will browse Attleboro.. Is that town a safe place tho? I refused to live in rural or not safe area.. LOL.. I might should seek for jobs in Providence after all then commute to Boston on my days off. If I am moving to Providence I would want to rent a loft in downtown or good part of Providence. I am phlebotomist so therefore I am seeking for phlebotomy and medical lab jobs. I heard Boston has a lot of hospital and medical center, I am sure Providence does too? As for the traffic I know how it is.. Ca has the worse traffic!! I am really looking forward to use commuter rail especially during the winter time. I really appreciate your help! I would like to get to know you more and perhaps hang out if I relocate! Take Care

Anne and I would be happy to show you and your partner around and hang out once you get moved :)

Attleboro is a suburban area with both good and not so good parts. I would never dream of recommending an unsafe area to you. From what you are telling me, your best bet would be to look in Providence. There are a lot of nice apartments around Brown University and there are several nearby hospitals and research centers for the university. For hospitals, I would look at Rhode Island Hospital, Hasbro Children's Hospital, Kent County Hospital, and Women and Infants Hospital. The job site for Women and Infants actually searches for jobs at Kent and I noticed several phelebotomist positions if you select the "all" organizations option. That site is http://www.womenandinfants.org/body.cfm?id=832

Talk to you later,

Morning,

Ok great.. I am sure Apala would like to meet you and Anne too as well.

I have been looking at some apts and lofts in providence. I know federal Hill is a good place.. what about Elmhurst and Armory? I saw lot of place in those two area.. I was not sure if its mediocre area since rent is little less there?

On this wed Apala should find out if she is hired.. I can't wait to find out the answer!! So after wed we will know for sure if we are moving or not.

Oh I have been meaning to ask you if you know any deaf people in RI or where they hang out at? Probably not I just had to ask anyway. Have a pleasant day. Talk to you soon.
I think the best way to answer your question about apartments in Providence is to say that it is difficult to determine if an area is nice without actually going there and driving around. Unlike some areas of the country,you can't identify nice areas here just by reference to a particular neighborhood.

There are some nice areas of Federal Hill and some not so nice areas. You are more likely to find a nice place in Federal Hill or around Brown University than you are in Elmhurst or the Armory, but there are some areas in the latter neighborhoods that are nice.

I know this is really tough to figure out without coming here. I will try to find a link to a map that will help you identify nice areas. If I find one, I will post it.

As to the deaf community, I honestly do not know where they hang out, but I am happy to help you look! I'm sure Providence is large enough to have some organized community like that :)

Take care and have a nice weekend!

Heather
