Providence, R.I., Yes, You've Come A Long Way, Chester Smolski Dec 1980

Providence, R.I., Yes, You've Come A Long Way, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"It was just three years ago that this writer described on these pages a "Saturday night out" in downtown Providence. The story demonstrated that a middle-aged couple could walk the city streets without being mugged, but more important, it revealed how little there was to see or do in the heart of the capital city.


Ri: An Exodus From The Cities, Chester Smolski Dec 1980

Ri: An Exodus From The Cities, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"The numbers from the 1980 census are now starting to appear, and although some of the figures are preliminary, they still give an indication of trends. Until more detailed numbers become available in the spring, city and town totals for Rhode Island can now form the basis for some early analysis of changes over the past 10 years."

Changing Markets Require Different Style Of Houses, Chester Smolski Nov 1980

Changing Markets Require Different Style Of Houses, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"It touches on the heartstrings and evokes a sense of nostalgia: the scene of father and mother sitting near the fireplace with the children playing at their feet. Here it is, the typical family at home, secure, stable, symbolic of the American way of life. But is this picture really accurate?


The Elderly: A Market Resource, Chester Smolski Nov 1980

The Elderly: A Market Resource, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"The audience that came to hear the talk was distinctive. All of them were over 65, and nine out of 10 in the group of approximately 90 were women."

Providence Home Rule, Chester Smolski Oct 1980

Providence Home Rule, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"The opposition bumper stickers have already appeared. In bright fluorescent colors to catch the unsuspecting eye, the message is loud and clear--'Reject Home Rule Charter.' Why should there be this opposition, and who are the people against this progressive move toward better local government?"

Suburban Sprawl Is A Tremendous Energy Waster, Chester Smolski Oct 1980

Suburban Sprawl Is A Tremendous Energy Waster, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"Urban sprawl has been likened to a formless web of urban development that looks like Swiss cheese with more holes than cheese, and Gertrude Stein, in her inimitable style, once described one of these spread cities as 'There's no there there.'"


Boost For The Downtown: Splendid New Arcade, Chester Smolski Oct 1980

Boost For The Downtown: Splendid New Arcade, Chester Smolski

Cleaning Downtown Can Lead To Improved Services, Chester Smolski Sep 1980

Cleaning Downtown Can Lead To Improved Services, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"The newly formed Downtown Providence Improvement Association has a simple goal--to clean the center of the capital city. The DPIA is taking on a commendable and necessary task, one which is long overdue, in what is likely one of the dirtiest and scruffiest downtowns in this part of the country.


Fresh Ideas Essential For Redesigning Downtown, Chester Smolski Sep 1980

Fresh Ideas Essential For Redesigning Downtown, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"Whether downtown Providence has style, grace, elegance and good taste or whether it is seedy, sleazy, schlock and second rate, there can be no question that the quality of the built enviornment should be a major consideration in all center city development. If the downtown is to prosper, than it must be made asthetically pleasing, inviting and comfortable, but who should be making these decisions on design?

Saving The Abandoned House, Chester Smolski Aug 1980

Saving The Abandoned House, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"It had been standing vacant in Olneyville for about three weeks, after the last tenant had moved out. Then one day a half-dozen young people came and ripped, smashed and generally tore it apart--the windows, doors and even the aluminum siding. Although the police were called, the vandals got away, and another house became a victim to city living."


Europe, Too, Feels The Auto Congestion, Chester Smolski Aug 1980

Europe, Too, Feels The Auto Congestion, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"Examining cities in other countries can be most productive, especially once the euphoria of visiting these cities has worn off through repeated visits. One discovers that heavy automobile traffic, inadequate parking and polluted air are problems as common in Spanish cities as those in America, and after three visits to this country over the past 12 years, one discerns a marked deterioration in the quality of urban life resulting from the steel monster of this century--the automobile.

Stevenage--Pace Setter Among "New Towns", Chester Smolski Aug 1980

Stevenage--Pace Setter Among "New Towns", Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"The British successful "great social experiment," going on for the past generation, is now coming to an end. This culmination is to be seen here in England's first, post-war new town, located 30 miles north of London in the rolling countryside of Hertfordshire, where the Stevenage Development Corporation has formally closed shop. For all pratical purposes, the construction of this urban center has ended."
