GoProvidence

Providence, capital of Rhode Island and the Providence Plantations. The smallest state in the USA with the longest name. A stopover of a few hours during our trip from New York to Boston.
A good choice because Providence is an interesting city. Lars has already shown a number of striking buildings of the city in three presentations.
The starting point of my presentation is a poster with which the city promotes itself among tourists.
The poster is the main photo. We find three elements in the photo that praise the city: a building, a gondola and the Waterfire’s in the river.
These objects can be seen in real life on the 2 additional photos.

Poster Welcome - Providence: One Citizens Plaza, a Gondola and the Waterfire’s.

■ Picture 2: ◄ All in One ►

• The building is One Citizens Plaza, opened in 1991 and designed by Architect
Jung / Brannen Associates and Robinson Green Beretta Architects. It is the headquarters or Citizens Bank. Not directly a crowd puller but possibly the bank sponsors this promotional campaign.
• In the distance we see a gondola just before the bridge. Furthermore, we did not see much activity from the gondolas and Venice and Las Vegas do not have to worry about this competitor.
• On the poster we see the river illuminated by fire pots. We see it again, but without fire, in the photo. This is an award winning sculpture by Barneby Evans. It consists of 80 sparkling bonfires. During the day a beautiful elongated ribbon that connects the Moshassuck River and the Woonasquatucket River. Undoubtedly a magical spectacle in the evening.

■ Picture 3: ◄ Gondola ►

In the third photo we see two gondolas with three gondoliers on the left probably discussing how to attract more tourists.
