Duaney downtown conflicted with negativism.

Abstract

"Nov. 7, 1991, will not necessarily be labeled a local day of infamy just because Prime Time Live chose to highlight Rhode Island, which some have called the most corrupt state in the country. But if one attended the final presentation of the Providence "charrette" earlier that evening--a summary of ideas and actions designed to revitalize the capital city's downtown--and later watched ABC's depiction of our state--one could certainly call it a day of incongruity."
