“I lived in central Paris in Spring [2022], and the noise there came nowhere close to the level of disruptive noise in Providence. The street noise — motorcycles, unregulated car engines, I-95 — here is deafening. Add to that the summer rock concerts, college parties, and of course insufferable fireworks, and this is the noisiest place I have ever experienced. It may drive us out of the city. The fact that central Paris was quieter than everyday Providence was eye-opening, and very depressing.”
