Providence, RI, Federal Hill, Little Italy



Photos of Federal Hill (Little Italy) in Providence, RI, USA

On Saturday, March 28, 2009, we went to Federal Hill in Providence, RI, which is the Little Italy section of the city. We had been there once before and we wanted to go back to pick up some things that we can't get here at home. We didn't want to go all the way to New York or Boston and there are a few places in Federal Hill that have much of the same things you can get in either of those two places.

(Watch those chickens back there by the door, I think they're trying to make a break for it!)
