    If it's too early for a beer- Grab a coffee or awesome breakfast sandwich just up the street at Elle's Bakery!

    Be careful of getting mugged! Make sure you are aware of your surroundings and help someone out if you see them getting mugged!! The police substation is RIGHT there, but don't assume they patrol!

    They pipe in classical music - the idea was that it would reduce the violence here at night. Not sure if it's reduced any violence (I don't find it bad) but it can make it pleasant/surreal down here.

    Ignore tips from people who've never been to a city or seen anyone with different colored skin than them in their lives. This place is tame.

    If you wait in the evening do not leave personal items on floor in fear for the large RATS. My life on RIPTA

    So many creepy people. Stay as far to the side as you can as not to have to strike up awkward conversations with creepy men who smell. Also, the pigeons are fearless and ruthless.

    Pretty sleazy place here. Lots of derelicts, shady women, and teenaged wannabe-gangstas.

    They all need money for the bus. Don't fall for it. Buy headphones even if you don't have music. Just pretend you don't hear them.

    Enjoy the exciting choice between sitting down or not being smothered in cigarette smoke from inconsiderate jerks!
