It's age friendly because of the care and respect
It's quiet neighborhood. No crimes and historical downtown Pawtucket .
I am new to this neighborhood and having only been here 3 weeks I can only go by what I have personally experienced thus far. I have been treated extremely well by people who don't even know me. I also noticed that the younger kids were Courtesy and helpful to their older relatives and neighbors. Everyone that passed me or anyone else on the street, age and race did not matter, said hello or smiled/nodded at me/ the other individuals in acknowledgement.
