The block on Benefit Street between Angell and College Streets marks the center of the Rhode Island School of Design, with dormitories up the hill between Angell and Waterman streets and an interesting sequence of buildings along the west side of Benefit. (The RISD College Building is discussed in the urban design context of the Providence County Courthouse complex; see PR53.)
