From the image we can see that many restaurants are located not exactly around the Mount Pleasant region. Instead according to google maps the heaviest concentration of restaurants are located downtown. This image is driven by what people have rated restaurants meaning that if an out of towner was to come in they would most likely be brought to downtown in order to experience "real great food". As a person who has lived in the Mount Pleasant area I can vouch for the inner city food to be able to compete with these down town locations. It might be important to know as a person who might want to come to dine in providence that there are many hidden jewls in the inner city.

Level of income.

Although the Median family income of the neighborhood is around $28,000 it is the sense of community that helps to bring in local restaurants and keep them here. Without the community aspect of all these restaurents that do not embrace the community tend to not last for long. In the Mount Pleasant area stepping into a eating establishment is like stepping into your families kitchen, the menu changes but the feeling of welcomness stays.

During the analyasis of the area I had to think about the zoning issues that Rhode island has put into place to restrict the use of land to certain functions. What I found was that these restuarents tended to follow these guidelines however there were few establishments that bended the rules. This was mosty found amongst grocery stores who decided that opening a little eating establishment would be beneifical to them.

This Particular image might mean nothing to a person outside of providence, however to a person who has lived in this area for a very long while this image represants the dinning experience around Mount Pleasant. As one can see there is not only one but FIVE eating establishments located in such a small area. With such an abundance of choices one might think that the quality of food might suffer however i've been to each of these places and they all provide AMAZING food. What is most important to note is that due to the understanding of the area by the owners the prices are affordable for everybody.
