What Bert Has To Say About Providence-Warwick Metro Area

Providence is the capital and primary commercial, industrial, and residential area for this small New England state. Established as an enclave of religious tolerance and resident American rights in pre-Revolutionary times, it remains a center of liberal intellectual thought. It’s also an old manufacturing and typically New-England style old textile milling center, and the area and surrounding communities of New Bedford and Fall River have borne the brunt of considerable economic dislocation. The metro area covers the state of Rhode Island and spreads eastward into Bristol County, Massachusetts (where New Bedford and Fall River are located).
