PROVIDENCE – A new self-guided walking tour of the Jewelry District features the original research of Brown University undergraduates and their professor, according to a university news release.
The Jewelry District, so named because it once was the base of the fashion jewelry industry for the United States, is now a diverse neighborhood of businesses and residences, and home to new businesses emerging in the I-195 Redevelopment District.
The free walking tour is a result of a partnership between the Providence Warwick Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Jewelry District Association and Dietrich Neumann, a professor of art and architecture and director of urban studies at Brown.
The research originated with a course he taught in spring 2017 called “Providence Architecture.”
The tour is available online.
