Description
A view of the (then called) Bradford House from Interstate 95 in Providence. Completed in 1966, the building is one of several high-rise towers that was built around the city for elderly residents, standing at 175 ft tall. It is of basic design with few noticeable features beyond its size and poor-relationship to the streets' plan.
