Founded in 1636 by Roger Williams, Providence is the capital of and the most populous city in Rhode Island. It was one of the first cities established in the United States. Located in Providence County, Providence is the second fastest-growing city in the Northeast and the second largest city in New England, with an estimated population of 171,909. Situated at the mouth of the Providence River, at the head of Narragansett Bay, Providence is a bustling center for industry, the arts, and higher education. The main campuses of five of Rhode Island’s colleges and universities are located in Providence including Brown University, Johnson & Wales University, Providence College, Rhode Island College, Rhode Island School of Design. Brown University is the second-largest employer in Providence. Higher education, as a whole, has a significant presence in the city’s politics and economy.

Providence Overview

Over the course of the 19th century, Providence was recognized as an industrial hub of the northeast, its thriving economy centered on the manufacture of machinery, silverware, jewelry and textiles. The city began to see a decline by the mid-1920s as industries, particularly textiles, shut down. In the 1970s, the city entered a period of economic and cultural renewal, a “Renaissance” began. By the 1990s, several new parks and recreational areas were developed, and the construction of the Providence Place Mall was initiated. Today, the City of Providence is home to eight hospitals and seven institutions of higher learning, which has shifted the city’s economy into service industries, though it still maintains significant manufacturing activity. This renewal and revitalization of the city has placed Providence at the leading-edge of American cities.

Providence has a long history of manufacturing activity as well as periods of commercial construction and redevelopment which may have exposed workers to asbestos-containing materials, putting them at risk for diseases such as mesothelioma. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma in Providence, you may benefit from contacting Dr. Raphael Bueno. If you were exposed to asbestos in Providence and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should also consider contacting an asbestos law firm.
