I'm not really sure what you're getting at with the "gangland" stuff, but there is no Angie Avenue in Durham. Possibly your fiance meant Angier Avenue? It's in East Durham, and there is a good bit of investment and re-development going on around the old East Durham business district where Angier and Driver St. intersect:

Angier, Driver Project Returns

Joe Bushfan opened a restaurant and TROSA opened a new grocery store near that intersection last year.

Yeah, I'm thinking Angier is probably it. I live over that way and Angier is really improving. There are some buildings that are slow to be torn down and rebuilt which add to the decayed aesthetics. A friend of my dh's was telling me that Angier used to REALLY bad in the past, but I honestly don't experience that type of glorified TV land violence type of stuff. There may be a hooker or two in the twilight hours on the north end of the street (dh has seen them when he gets off work), but other than that, it's pretty quiet.

One thing to keep in mind in Durham is just because it's a 'main' street (which I beg to differ regarding Angier), doesn't mean you have to come anywhere near it in your day to day life.

ANGIER Avenue is indeed considered "the bad part of town"--but Durham is a big place. Generally Southeast Durham just off downtown is the bad part, but that leaves 3/4 of the city that is not considered "bad" as a rule. Every city has its bad areas, and if you are worried, just don't move to that area of town.

I'm highly confused. Can you explain the connection between not having friends/socializing and "Angie" Avenue? Are you currently living in Durham? Are you planning to move to Angier Avenue?

Anyway, there is crime in every city, and Durham is not any "scarier" than anyplace else. I happen to love the city, and all the cool stuff it has to offer. I live in Raleigh, and I'm planning a move to Durham at some point.

Durham is so much better than it was say, 15 years ago. It has a few rough pockets, but its reputation is largely based on the relatively distant past.

Angier Ave is about 6 miles long, and runs the gamut from rural to urban. Are you telling me that the entirety of Angier Ave is "rough as ****"?

I've never felt scared when walking down Angier. But different strokes...
