Orange Street in Durham: A zone of fun and purloined plants

Posted by on Wed, Jun 17, 2015 at 11:59 AM

Oh, Durham, how I love thee. You're so funny, so weird. 

I often stroll down Orange Street, a downtown walkway, for a breakfast of avocado toast at Scratch, or a detour down Alley 26 to observe the construction. Last month, I noticed someone—a buttface, indeed—had stolen some plants from outside the Fun Zone.

Aaron Averill, a local tech guy who owns a nearby building, heard about the purloined plants, and started a crowdfunding campaign to replace the greenery.

Now fun has returned to Orange Street.
