Providence is a town located in northwest Saratoga County, New York. North of the Town and Village of Galway. Providence has famously been called the "dump of Saratoga County"

Streams, small lakes and ponds dot the rural landscape of gentle rolling forest-covered hills and picture-esque scenery.

Blighting this environment are trailers and beat-up houses with about fifty junk cars in the yard, none of which run. People living in their own filth, run-down country homes, and people living in camps. Genesee Beer is the only swill that is allowed to be consumed, and everyone seems to go party on "the lake" during weekends (Sacandaga Reservoir).

Kids and teenagers in Providence go to Galway High School. Guys all tend to still have mullets, cut of jean-jackets / vests with backpatches that say words like "Metallica" "Dio" "Warrent" while the girls Clorox their hair and collect teddy bears. The adults tend to not work, are unemployed, or have friends up in Mayfield that they do odd-jobs for.

The main roads are "Fish House Road" and "Barkersville Road" which are county roads.

There are thrills to be had in Providence. The kids can't wait to grow up, cook microwave food, pull welfare scams, own a gun, work on cars, and have babies.

If visiting, or driving through stay on the county roads. The town roads, goat paths, and dirt roads lead to some scary areas that can only be seen in the movie "Deliverance"
