Located in the suburbs of Providence City, it is part of the Providence Urban Area, which has a population of over 1.6 million people as of 2005.
The porter was the center of the cotton textile industry during the Industrial Revolution in the United States. In 1793, Samuel Slater built the Slater Slater Plant at the Porter Porter Falls of the Blackstone River, which is located on the central side of the center of the Porter's pocket, and the Slater Mill was the first cotton spinning plant which was completely mechanized using hydropower in the United States of America and was financially successful. Other manufacturers continued to change the portlets into the centers of the textile industry and iron industry.
The textile industry in New England went into decline during the Great Depression and many manufacturers either closed the equipment or moved it to the south for cheaper power. However, unlike many of the old industrial towns in the region, the Portacketts were able to hold many of its industrial bases. The products produced in the portable pockets today include lace, nonwoven fabric and elastic cloth, jewelry, silverware, metal and textile products. In toys and games, Hasbro, one of the world's largest manufacturers, has its headquarters in a portable pocket.
There were originally two portackets. The porter in the west bank of the Blackstone River was part of an adjacent North Providence. The Portacket on the East Bank was colonized as part of the town of Rehobos, a Massachusetts Bay colony. In the 1860s, the East Porter Pocket was ceded to Rhode Island State, and the West Bank and the East Bank Porter became one. The town became a city in 1886.
The portlet is used for the northern latitude 41 degrees 52 minutes 32 seconds, for the west longitude 71 degrees 22 minutes 34 seconds, for the north latitude 41.87556 degrees, for the west longitude 71.37611 degrees/ 41.87556 degrees;.37611. According to the National Census Bureau, the total area of the city is 9.0 square miles (23.3 km2), of which land is 8.7 square miles (22.6 km2), water area is 0.3 square miles (0.7 km 2), and water area is 2.89%. The Blackstone River, the tides of the Sea Conc River and the Tenmile River flow through the city.

As of 2000, 20.6% of the people living in the Portacket were French or French Canadian. Like neighboring Providence City, East Providence City, Fall River City in Massachusetts, and New Bedford City, Portacketts have a significant number of immigrants from the former Portuguese Maritime Empire, with a population of 11.6%. There are also many immigrants from Cape Verde.
Liberians who have fled Liberia, which is ruled by President Charles Taylor, are one of the few cities in the United States. Rhode Island is a Liberian country with a high population ratio. The pocket-money is not only from Liberia, but also from West Africa.
The Northeast Corridor of Amtrak and the Providence Stone Line of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Bureau run through Potaccet City, but there are no stops in the city. The boarding at the Portacket Central Falls Station also ended in 1959. Recently, there is an argument that the old railway station of the Portacket should be renovated or that the platforms along the railway line should be used as a stop. Commuters can use the stops at South Atlborough from Newport Avenue across the state border. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Bureau runs a portable transmission facility on the Providence Stone Line. This is not a station, but a place where trains stop all night. If you use Amtrak, the nearest station is Providence.
You can use public bus transportation in the city. The Road Island State Public Transportation Bureau operates relay stops in the center of the Portacket, and there are routes to various places and nearby towns in the city. Bus users can use the buses of the Road Island State Public Transportation Bureau at the relay stop in the center of the Providence, or at the stop in Smithfield Avenue or Portacket Avenue. The Kennedy Plaza, the Providence bus, offers a bus to most parts of the state.
Interstate Expressway Route 95 and U.S. National Route 1 run through the western part of the pocket. The minimum speed indicator on Inter-State Expressway Route 95 in the city is due to an S-curve near the city center. Road planners made sharp curves on high-grade roads to preserve specific buildings in the city.
The central corridor of the Portacket is a one-way circular road that goes through the central city. This is close to the concept of the English Ring Road. A similar method was attempted in the case of provision.
The central corridors use Ease and Avenue, High Street, Summer Street, Goff Avenue, Dexter Street and Park Place West. The half circle of the corridor runs on one side of National Route 1. Some of them are for the west of National Route 15 and for the north of National Route 114. On the overhead signboard, there is a large corridor initials 'C'.
There is no indication at present in the central corridor, and only the form of the road remains. The circular road in the center of Providence was also destined to do the same.

The city hired Ann Galigan, a researcher at the University of North Eastern to draw up plans for art and culture. If the city became more active in retaining and attracting artists, it was a result of the idea that the resources that could be effectively adapted to the needs of the growing artist's society could be distributed.
Port-Takkets are now called the center of art and culture. The 2004 New York Times article discusses the ongoing efforts to attract the artists the city is doing and the continuing problems associated with government work. In the 2008 documentary "The Rise of the Portable Market," he also criticized the influx of artists and cultural activities in the previously devastated city areas.
Every September, the city holds an art festival in cooperation with members of the Portacket Art Cooperative Association. There is also a day-to-day music event produced by an independent organization called Reversing.
In 1978, the Japanese Society for Pedigree Study of American-French Genealogy was established.
The public education of the portable ticket is under the jurisdiction of the Portable School Department, which includes four high schools, three middle schools and ten elementary schools. One of the high schools is Jacqueline M. Walsh School of Arts and Music.
In the Quality Hill district of the Portacket, there is the St. Raphael Academy. This is a private college preparatory school founded on St. John the Baptist de la Salle. It is a small school with 500 students and a 15:2 ratio between students and teachers. He has been very successful in sports, including baseball, American football, basketball and softball. This school is in a rivalry with William E. Tolman. For more than 70 years, the team played Thanksgiving football games at McCoy Stadium. At present, the game is not held because William E. Tolman's School is competing with the public Charles E. Sea High School every year.
In the Fairlawn district, there is also a small women's Catholic high school called Bishop Keif High School. There are three Catholic elementary schools.
The Portable Red Sox, an AAA minor league team owned by Ben Mondoo and affiliated with Boston Red Sox, is based on a pocket. On April 18, 1981, the Portable Red Sox vs. Rochester Red Wings games held at McCoy Stadium last two days, with 33 games extended and 8 hours and 25 minutes the longest U.S. professional baseball game ever. The history of professional baseball in the pocket started in 1892, and there were some teams including the Portable Indians.
In 1934, Naraganset Park Racecourse opened as a Thoroughbred racecourse. Before the race was closed in 1978, important races were held that attracted the famous horses of the United States of America, such as Warad Millar, Sea Biscuit, and Ganbo, who entered the Hall of Fame Museum of American horse racing.
Parks and recreation
At Slater Memorial Park, there are many recreation facilities, including tennis courts and picnics.
