In my (over?) familiarity with Providence, I never included any kind of map to orient the Arcade, both in terms of cardinal directions and in terms of the city. So a little belated, but here is what Google Maps has to offer:

This "map" view shows downtown Providence. I have circled where the Arcade is located.

 This "satellite" view again shows downtown Providence, with the Arcade circled.

This aerial is a close up of the Arcade. It shows the way in which the building stretches across the entire lot between Westminster and Weybosset. It also shows how Providence Optical (shown in photos in the previous post) and other adjacent buildings were neatly fitted into the spaces left by the floor plan design of the Arcade.
