Durham’s College Drag

When I first moved to Durham, people would comment that Durham didn’t have a college drag like Hillsborough Street in Raleigh and Franklin Street in Chapel Hill.

But that isn’t true. Durham may not have a street as long as those adjacent to a campus but it has something even better.

Duke East Campus is embraced by two shopping and dining districts with bars, restaurants, book stores, galleries etc. One is the Ninth Street District on the west side and the other the Brightleaf District on the east.

They are better than one long drag because they are distinct and compact.

Amazing the things people say to feel superior.
