Hi, Federal Hill is a neighborhood in the city of Providence, R.I. Its in the county of Providence. In the 40's it was mostly Italian residents, with the main avenue "Atwells Ave" lined with all types of fruit, fish,flowers carts that had only two wheels. It was a very lively area, and its just up the hill from the center of the city. Today it has changed considerable, no carts,most Italians have gone to other areas, but it has many fine restaurants, businesses and a confluence of many ethnic backgrounds. Hope this helps. Ed.
