I hate this. Raleigh's charm is being chewed up and spit out with ordinary and expensive. I can hardly afford to live here and I'm fifth generation in Raleigh. Are there any city leaders that were born and raised in Raleigh? If so I wish they cared more about Raleigh's history
I wonder if it's too late to include making legislators who vote for giant tax cuts also subject to the economic terrorist felony statutes. And for good measure, let's throw in lying about solar farms and trying to circumvent approved solar projects as economic terrorism, as well.
3 & 5 Maiden Ln were home to Delta Upsilon fraternity for many years...many good times
The Republicans lie, constantly and consistently! Which is why Sessions cannot remember anything. Burr is a total failure - his conduct in ignoring the need for investigation of Trump-Russia cannot be explained by anything but cowardice, ignorance and disdain for his constituents. Walker is too dense to understand the issues and is very poorly qualified to comment, or anything else for that matter. He is too bound up in serving his evangelical base to give a damned about the larger constituency of the 6th District. The entire Trump cabal is a total clown show and should be cancelled forthwith. As for ACA, they have no replacement and will become the death panels they warned about as they sabotaged Obama as he tried to set ACA up. And, they sabotaged everything else during his tenure. They are not public servants, but serfs to the rich sponsors of America's decline and demise. Bring some of these idiots, like Sessions, up on charges of treason.
Proud former resident of #9 Maiden Lane. The memories will live in my heart FOREVER.
Mark Walker's constant concern about "tension" is so cheesy and obnoxious. This is the same guy who complained that Bruce Springsteen was being a bully for cancelling a concert in Greensboro over HB2.
I am heartbroken. We lived at 12 1/2 Maiden Lane during college in the early 80's, next door to what we considered a middle aged couple (looking back probably only late 30's). It was such a cool relaxed street mixed with Frats, students, working people and who knows what they did, but the dogs played and we all chatted and looked out for one another. That apartment had been passed down from student to student that worked at the Breakfast House at the corner. What has happened to that strip of Hillsborough street is a disgrace, no character across from the Bell Tower, just brick building after brick building
I wonder what effort, if any, was made by the area's Business Improvement District -- run by and known as the Hillsborough Street "Community" Service Corporation and supported by tax dollars -- to focus redevelopment in this area while preserving the homes. It seems like the economic redevelopment efforts by the HSCSC are always upzone-and-bulldoze without respect to the area's history and significant character. Yuck.

Raleigh will continue to rip down historic parts of the city until we get a majority on council that supports Raleigh's history and neighborhoods. I'm thankful for Councilors Crowder, Stephenson and Cox who are the ultimate neighborhood supporters. It's an elections year folks, you need to get out and VOTE!
This is a great article. Well chosen words. Thanks.
I'm leaving this comment here so there is a place on the internet where my name appears with Jonathan Byrd and Leonard Podolak, two of the finest and old friends by this point. I hope to find this comment again randomly sometime in the 20's.
It is a shame to see the city doing this to one of the oldest (if not THE oldest) neighborhoods around NCSU. The Brewer house is most likely older than 1900. There have been fraternities occupying the houses since at least WWII.
He did it. Not a doubt in my mind. I knew them both and I've walked down the stairway.
This record is "All Over the Place". I mean that in the best way possible.
In 2006 University Park neighbors led the effort to have Maiden Lane designated as a National Register Historic District. We hoped that rehabilitation tax credits would help spark Maiden Lane's historic revitalization. http://www.hpo.ncdcr.gov/nr/WA4418.pdf
Trump didn't ask his supporters to take to the streets. They can think for themselves and decided to in an act of support for what the President has accomplished in his first month. After that speech last night, I'm sure you can expect many more participating in the marches of support across the nation.
Thimble Pleasures has been nominated in the Fabric Store category, but they closed in 2016. "Bernita" is not even the name of a fabric store in the Triangle.
Best local "Maker" for the slew of awesome local craftswomen and men.
Response to Bluetrain' s unfriendly comments about things "neighbors" should do sounds like the kind of action people do out of frustration and not kindness. Hardly would those steps be taken as neighborly.
Try adopting a more positive attitude Mr Bluetrain, you might be a whole lot nicer and happier, and a better neighbor.
I think they are doing a good thing showing how money can be made in agri tourism. The dollar amounts spent on their farming activities don't matter. All the parsing of their business model doesn't matter. It's a tiny farm with a large barn. So what?
If loud noises come forth after reasonable hours, it should be stopped quickly. Otherwise you folks should get over someone else having more money than you...
