מה נעשה

First, bring a mask. We'll start on the river in front the silver circle sculpture and then weave around Brown University and College Hill, stopping to talk at lookouts, colonial sites, public sculptures, hidden gardens, and, for Crimetown fans, the scene of the "Nightmare on Power Street. " Roger Williams called Rhode Island a "lively experiment." I'll do my best to report how it worked out for Rhode Island and the nation. The walk is just two miles and should take about 2 hours. It's hilly. So bring good shoes.

I was a newsman for 47 years: reporter, editor, columnist, webmaster. I now teach journalism at the University of Rhode Island, where I have honed my performance-presentation skills. As a journalist, teacher, runner, reader of history and 16-year resident of Providence's Fox Point-College Hill neighborhood, I know the state's stories and hidden passages around Brown University and colonial Providence. Mine will be an amused and irreverent tour with time to indulge in the lives of the pious and the profane. By rights, Providence should be known as the place the American Revolution began, but the citizens had to keep it quiet. King George had a bounty on John Brown's head.

The Providence waterfront; John Brown's house on a hill; the scene of Buddy Cianci's first felony, the place where the Revolution started, but no one noticed; Brown University; H.P. Lovecraft Square; gardens tucked out of view; the library where Sarah Whitman dismissed Edgar Alan Poe; the site of the Snow Town race riot of 1831; the Roger Williams lookout; and the home of the colonial governor who tried to negotiate a peace with Britain.

We met up with Peter just after we arrived to Providence and it was the perfect way to start our weekend here! We learned so much about the history of the city and our country. Peter offered his insight into the stories and had interesting facts and even brought along supplemental media to share! Highly recommend!

Peter is a talented storyteller and this tour was overall quite wonderful. He paces things very nicely so it's accessible even for seniors like me, has a planned rest stop in the middle of the two hours and is very interactive with the group, answering questions during his presentation. I highly recommend this tour, weather permitting, for anyone who visits Providence.

A beautiful walk through a lovely neighborhood of Providence with some fascinating stories along the way. Peter showed us some great spots we likely wouldn't have found on our own.

We had a wonderful experience doing the walking tour. Peter definitely has done his research very well and was a vault of information on the city of Providence and it's rich history. The meeting spot was easy to find, Peter was very welcoming and kept a good pace during the tours. We have visited Providence many times, and the tour was a great addition to our appreciation for the rich history of the city. Definitely 2 hours well spent and worth the cost!

Peter’s tour is an absolute must do for anyone new to Providence. Great storytelling and a super background to the city’s history. The walk is hilly but Peter doesn’t rush it and makes the walk easy with plenty of stops to catch your breath as he is telling you about Providence. A wonderful walk through Brown University campus and Peter is very easy to get along with. Thanks Peter - amazing!
