India Point Park
Providence, RI

I ended up with my fellow photographer and friend, Greg MacKay, at India Point in Providence. It is even a cool spot for night photography! Who would have thought. I would have liked it if it would have been a little warmer.

Some info:
"India Point is a centerpiece in Rhode Island history: Roger Williams landed nearby on the banks of the Seekonk River in 1636, then canoed along what is now the Park’s shoreline to the fresh water spring just up the Providence River. During the 1700’s, the bustling port at India Point launched countless trading voyages to the East and West Indies, giving the area its name. After 1850, waves of immigrants — primarily Irish, Cape Verdean, Azorean, and Portuguese — landed at India Point, which teemed with steamships. The present-day Park was created in 1974 out of railroad beds and a scrap metal yard through the efforts of the late Mary Elizabeth Sharpe, government officials, and citizens in Fox Point and greater Providence."
