The Remaking of Stable Neighborhood - I

Not so long ago in a neighborhood not so far away, things like this never happened.

After all, this is the sort of area where people move back into their childhood homes when they retire.

Or they stay here all their lives.

So, by what logic did it become ground-zero for renewal. Aren't renewals reserved for areas that are declining in property values?

So, why, pray tell, is this stable community full of sitting ducks, empty lots, sore-thumbs, and now these?

If it hasn't happened where you live, and if your zipcode is in central Raleigh, pay attention. Your property taxes are not the only thing that have gone crazy.

The house next door got its makeover in February.
