A view of the intersection of Warren Street and Dudley Street in Dudley Square, Roxbury, Massachusetts.

The Second Empire-style Hotel Dartmouth occupies the northwest corner of the intersection at 144 Dudley Street. On the opposite side of the street are a group of mercantile buildings, including the Roxbury Eye & Ear Infirmary at 24 Warren Street, and a billboard for the H.
