Downtown Providence, RI Neighborhood Information

What is near The Regency Plaza Apartments!

In 1636, the city of Providence and eventual capital of the state of Rhode Island came into being. Founded by Roger Williams, a religious exile, the city was apparently so named because of "God's merciful Providence" which led Williams and his band of settlers to the head of the Providence River at the mouth of Narragansett Bay. It now boasts eight hospitals and seven institutions of higher learning, including Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and as of 2009 re-branded itself as the "creative capital" in an effort to showcase its arts and education resources. The city's previous official slogan "the Renaissance city," heralded the fact that it is one of the country's oldest cities and that many of its original buildings and landscaping still remain intact.

Colors of Fall
As the temperatures start to drop and the day light grows shorter you will start to notice the colorful fall displays appearing on the properties.  The fall season is like a changing of the guard. The lush summer landscapes slow down and start to conserve their energy for a long winter. The fall season and change in the landscapes can be one of the most inspiring and colorful times of the year as it is especially evident outside your CHR apartment window.   read more
