We Are a City of Many Bridges

From January through April 2015, we held more than twenty small and large group discussions related to the George Street Overpass project. These community conversations were organized to inform our community about this exciting public art initiative, and also to ask for their input—a way to inform the artists engaged in the project about the character of Pawtucket, its history, and its future. These are some of their responses, related to Pawtucket as A City of Many Bridges.

We are a city of many bridges…
of so many little neighborhoods
of many nationalities
of many sports
of many young people
of many mills and smoke stacks
of many spires and steeples
of oneness in the many—we have common goals.
