I've lived in Durham, Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and northern Chatham -- 6 years, 4 years, 2 years, and 1 year
Previously I lived about an hour south of Pittsboro would visit here any time I wanted to do anything exciting.
I love this entire region
and I mourn the rapid growth that swallows the individual character of each of these places, even raleigh/cary.
Personally, I would choose to live in northern Chatham over Carrboro; Carrboro over Chapel Hill; and Chapel
Hill over Durham.
I listen to XYC more than XDU, NCU, KNC, & UNC but I like them all. I don't know what "happened to northern
chatham", I find as much
incestuousness in Durham as anywhere, Chapel Hill and surrounding areas have produced more successful bands
recently than winston or raleigh,
publicity seems to be the good for anyone seeking business.... it's all going to be one big sprawling city
soon anyway, so why don't
we work on keeping it ALL as great as we possibly can, and preserve as much as we can of each suburb's history
