Serdar and I met for coffee in August.. He was passing through my area and we decided to take advantage of the opportunity. We met in the AM so naturally I rode my bike to meet him, on my way to work. The latest feature of his new blog, Civic Images (new to me) are the many pictures he has posted of the city where I live (actually I'm about 10 miles away, in a suburb). Providence has made a remarkable comeback in the last 10 years. Property values doubled, downtown is revitalized with many large construction projects, we have Waterfire, Brown, RISD, Johnson & Wales.. A TON of Turkish students all over the place. We're a waterfront city. Close to New York, even closer to Boston.. Great beaches nearby. We have the two largest casinos in the world just 45 minutes away in CT. We have had numerous movies filmed here (There's Something About Mary, Dumb & Dumber, to name a couple) Anyway, please check out Civic Images for some great photography of city scenes from all over the country, most recently Providence.
