Providence has long attracted people from around the globe to Southern New England. The city is comprised of twenty-five diverse neighborhoods in its 20.5 square miles and, as is often the case, the lines between the official boundaries and what most locals mean when they refer to an area of the city are often blurred. One such community is College Hill, one of six neighborhoods in the affluent East Side of Providence, located on North Main Street to the west, Power Street to the south, Governor Street and Arlington Avenue to the east and Olney Street to the north. It is officially part of the East Side and is home to famed Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Designated as one of the top 10 neighborhoods in the country by the American Planning Association in 2011, College Hill residents take pride in the preservation of its historic houses and urban renewal projects. Local residents and visiting students alike enjoy Thayer Street's eclectic array of coffee shops, restaurants and shopping as well as overlooking the city's skyline at Prospect Park.
