Second Street Fall River
Narragansett Bay

A shot from above my house on Second Street in Fall River, Massachusetts. Look north to see City Hall. Look southwest to see the spires of St Anne's Cathedral. Look down to see the pigeon poop on my roof.  It's also possible to see the Braga Bridge, the spire of St. Mary's Cathedral and the smokestacks of the Brayton Point Power Plant ... how great is that?

More About Narragansett Bay

Narragansett Bay dominates the geography of the tiny state of Rhode Island, extending 25 miles northwards and inland from the Atlantic Ocean right into the heart of its major cities.  It is fed by the watersheds of 3 major rivers: the Blackstone, the Taunton and the Pawtuxet.  Narragansett Bay defines the region's culture, its history, sense of place and quality of life.  The cities of Providence, Newport, Fall River, Warwick and Newport all owe their start to the bay and the opportunities it provided for water power, commercial growth and transportation.  Once badly polluted, the Narragansett Bay has made a tremendous comeback in the last 3 decades as communities all around the bay have revitalized their connection to the bay and taken steps to curb human impact.  Aerial Vr plans a series of panoramas intended to capture the area's unique natural beauty, both from its surface and from the air as well as the vitality and uniqueness of its communities.
