Greater City Providence

Paved paradise?

I was walking down Spruce Street last night in the rain to go to the new Walgreens at 333 Atwells to buy some ice cream, when I realized something was missing on Spruce Street.

Remember that social club behind Tony’s Colonial? Well it’s gone. No not closed, gone, the whole maude-damn building is gone. Parking?
