The tree in question is a linden, most likely an American linden (Tilia americana).  The leaves are larger than those one would find on a littleleaf linden (T. cordata) and the undersides of these leaves do not appear silver like those of a silver linden (T. tomentosa).  This linden is growing in Providence, Rhode Island.
