Description

Blighted area in Upper South Providence near Women and Infants (1986) and Rhode Hospital (1864). In-fill housing eventually filled much of the vacant land, as well as the hospitals claimed space needed for expansion through parking lots and resource centers. The central building is Lockwood Plaza Apartments, and at the north end of the photograph, Classical High School and the Weybosset Hill area.
