For those of you in (or around) RI, has anyone scoped out this site to see what level of security is still maintained? I know it hasn't been officially occupied since 2013, but it is in a city after all
Based on Google Maps, it looks like there's a bank right next to it and the street looks pretty busy. I'm sure there are cameras everywhere, and I think they occasionally do tours of the building so the inside is probably maintained. They haven't given up with it yet and I doubt they will for a while since it's such a large and historic building in a busy and active area.
It's a very inherently secure building, with heavy metal doors and strong metal windows. There's nothing to try to bend or coax. There are no windows at street level, and the ones that scaffolding provides access to are stout metal, not rotten wooden double hung. Something would have to be unlocked from inside. I'd be very surprised if it's not alarmed.
