Description

This aerial shows I-95 in the left-center and Allens Avenue at right-center heading north into downtown. Lining the western bank of Providence Harbor is the industrial waterfront which until recently had been “long-overlooked” despite its historic role as the source Providence’s original prosperity. Today it stands as one of only two deep-water ports in New England, and one of the busiest multimodal facilities for international and domestic distribution.
