The Edgewood neighborhood of Cranston sits right on the cusp of Providence, the Narragansett Bay and Pawtuxet Village. It’s a quiet, residential area where the streets are lined with trees, historic homes and a short walk away from local shopping and dining. Edgewood is a tight-knit community — the type of place where people “welcome you to the neighborhood” with baked goods and neighbors know each other by name. Plus, its proximity to the Bay and Pawtuxet makes it the only area in Cranston where salt water views are a possibility.
