"Olneyville, one of Providence’s oldest and poorest neighborhoods, has many abandoned industrial buildings. When Olneyville’s Providence Steel and Iron went out of business in 2001, the property was purchased by a new non-profit called The Steel Yard. The new owners believed that rather than demolishing the existing structures, the property could be repurposed as a community space for local artists."
