Description

The working class housing of the Hartford neighborhood was destroyed when the Route 6 connector was built to alleviate traffic in Olneyville Square. Low-income housing (Hartoford Park Public Housing Project seen here) was built on Corbusian principles of the Radiant City (1935). The mills behind the Atlantic Furniture Mills were demolished and the land is currently Woonasquatucket River Greenway which includes a bike path. Merino park is to the north west (lefthand corner). Oliver Hazard Perry Middle School appears in the center-left.
