Great article, Loves! I, too, hope we will see revitalization become the standard. Maybe some of our newcomers who are into rehab will choose this area. Thanks for sharing!

I actually love that section of Charlotte and can't wait for it to continue to improve. What has occured already just in Southend is so neat!

Didn't you just love how he said that Prices used to have real chicken coops out back when he was a kid tramping thru the neighborhood??? You couldn't get fried chicken any fresher than that, lol!

And talk about Wilmore...you can't even hardly touch it now...prices have gone thru the roof. So so many people want to live intown and not have those 1hr commutes (or near 1hr) to work (if you work Uptown).

Wilmore was da hood...less than 5 years ago!

Now they are even concentating on revitalizing Optimist Park. That will take alot of work, Remember a few years back that there was so much crime and drugs that the neighborhood hired their own security in addition to CMPD.

Just shows that ALL areas that border Uptown are hot are gonna be hot real soon.

Wow, thanks for posting this link. Great story with interesting insight into a bygone era. My hope is that DH and I can purchase our first house in an area like the author describes.

^ Ditto!

But that's the type of neighborhood I'd love to find. Close in, with a real sense of community.
