First time looking at this Providence thread. Providence really needs a large Cthulu statue. With other statues of Lovecrafts creations spread throughout the city

There are many places related to HP Lovecraft in the city. These include a square named for him, former home, store, library where he hung out, and his final resting place at Swan Point Cemetery.

Lovecraft also often frequented the Providence Athenaeum on Benefit Street which was very close to his childhood home (now occupied by a Brown Univ building). The library also has connections to Edgar Allan Poe as he wooed local resident poet Sarah Helen Whitman there in 1848. It is thought she may have broken off their engagement there after finding out he had broke his promise to stop drinking. There are busts of both Lovecraft and Poe there.

That is cool, but I’m talking a Cthulhu statue, maybe a Deep One, stuff like that!
