Providence is the capital and the most populous city of the U.S. state of Rhode Island, and one of the first cities established in the United States. Located in Providence County, it is the estimated third-largest city in the New England region. Despite the city proper only having an estimated population of 172,459 as of 2007, it anchors the 36th largest metropolitan population in the country, due to its reaching into southern Massachusetts. Providence was founded in 1636 by Roger Williams, a religious exile from the Massachusetts Bay Colony.

Its skyline is often visible behind the Griffin Home and was frequently used as a backdrop for the Quahog 5 News. The Providence Civic Center is located here
