Hi, I'm moving to West Warwick (Near River St.). Is anyone familiar with this area? I have never been to Rhode Island and my major concern is the safety of a neighborhood. Is this a good neighborhood?

WOW!!
West Warwick's claim to fame:
Chronic corruption dating back to forever.
As a former resident, sorry to say that crime has spiked since I married and left in '77.
Lots of debt,(questionable sources of income for some residents.
Former 'mill town' that hasn't been able to rejuvinate itself.
On the plus side; there's lots of dunkin donut stores and plenty of empty storefronts.

Forgot to mention; you mention River Street. Well think about the namesake, the river that spills over into neighborhoods when the spring thaws take place. My advice, buy a sump pump and consider a canoe.

Safety on a scale of 1-10 is about '2', unless you're politically connected.
