Pawtucket has a great opportunity for growth but remains a bustling city to be a part of. 

There's no public transportation and the neighbors keep to themselves. They don't bother to speak you, but they do answer when you do.
Hello , I hope I anwser this to the best of my ability since I never had this on a job aoolication . The neighborhood I live in is age friendly they are an abundance of age range and we are a close community most of the neighbors know each other .
There are a lot of parks and open spaces for an option recreational time. I haven't seen many places that are not handicap friendly. It is more of a city community though which could be age unfriendly for many reasons.
This community is age friendly. We're in between everything a growing community needs such as elementary schools, middle schools , and highschool all within walking distance, we have a couple community centers for the parents who work long fr days , and we have ply grounds all with view.
