Greater City Providence


Rhode House Creamery

Yay! Ice Cream! The Rhode House Creamery on Atwells finally replaced the Al & Betty’s sign which has been hanging over their store since they opened last month. I like!

Civic Center Garage

Now I love signs. I especially love signs that are lit and animated but, really? Is this needed? Are drivers even going to see this, would it be better to just put a sign at street level? It also detracts from the giant P-A-R-K running up the side of the building, which I like.
