This map is part of a series depicting the 40 largest cities in the United States (as ranked by CBSA). This series will run through the month of July.

A pretty ho-hum birdseye of Providence, Rhode Island [gmap] commissioned for the Providence Journal.

No doubt of interest for residents of Providence; but also potentially of use to the OCD-afflicted (the boxcars in the center foreground must've been as fun to draw as they are to count).
