Compare Multiple Neighborhoods

Located in the northeast section of Providence, the Hope neighborhood is roughly bounded by the border between Providence and Pawtucket to the North, Hope Street to the East, Rochambeau Avenue to the South, and North Main Street and Interstate 95 and the North Burial Ground to the West. Although principally a residential neighborhood, Hope has two commercial corridors, Hope Street and North Main Street. Hope developed, as other Providence neighborhoods did, through the implementation of the streetcar throughout the city. Miriam Hospital was built in the hope area in the 1940s and is the central institution preoccupying much of the area. The area is known colloquially as the Summit neighborhood and is regarded as one of the most well established and engaged communities in the city.
