View all marks
Warwick (locally ) is a city in Kent County, Rhode Island, the second largest city in the state with a population of 82,672 at the 2010 census. Warwick is located approximately 12 miles (19 km) south of downtown Providence, Rhode Island, 63 miles (101 km) southwest of Boston, Massachusetts, and 171 miles (275 km) northeast of New York City. Warwick was founded by Samuel Gorton in 1642 and has witnessed major events in American history. It was decimated during King Philip's War (1675–76) and was the site of the Gaspee Affair, a significant prelude to the American Revolution. Warwick is also the home of Revolutionary War General Nathanael Greene, George Washington's second-in-command, and Civil War General George S. Greene, hero of the battle of Gettysburg. Today, it is home to Rhode Island's main airport T. F. Green Airport, which serves the Providence area and also functions as a reliever for Logan International Airport in Boston, Massachusetts.

I have lived in different parts of this city almost all of my life. While they used to say this is a great state for people to retire in, costs have risen, and I personally do not think that will be true for my wife and myself. We will not be able to live up to the standards of the area in which we live unless we work, and elder discrimination is rampant in hiring here. A few senior centers do not make for quality of life. I hope we find a way to leave this community and state.
