Enjoy the View

A picture is worth a thousand words, and this one speaks volumes about our downtown Durham neighborhood.

Skanska, the company that built the new Durham Performing Arts Center, comissioned this aerial shot. To me, it's as grand as any Monet or Picasso. The Durham Bulls Athletic Park is surrounded by the Diamond View I and II office buildings. To the north is the new parking deck, theater and park. And the American Tobacco campus is on the left. As the late Fred Rogers said:
"It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood."

Baseball tickets, a Broadway show, office space, restuarants or just hangin' out in the park...
"Won't you be my neighbor?"
