Photo of the Day: Water Place and Providence River Park, Providence RI

At the end of October, I visited Providence, RI for the first time. One of the first sights I came across after getting off the Amtrak Station was Water Place and Providence River Park, in downtown. This area was created by rerouting the Providence River and removing paving that for decades had covered it over. The sight confirmed what I had heard: that the revitalization of the waterway was a key factor, in the last few decades, in reviving this New England city.
