“College Hill, or how the general area is called - East Side (not to be confused with the more suburban, East Providence) is home to most of the Brown University and RISD campuses. The area is known for its more stablished artistic vibe, Ivy League history, and beautiful old architecture. There are also a number of antique shops in the neighborhood for afternoon treasure hunts. One can easily find great restaurants on Wickenden Street, Thayer Street, and Wayland Square. ”
