Close-knit cities?

Via Ginny, we learn that the NY Times has discovered the Triangle. Coming on the heels of USNWR discovering Durham, i don't know how much more of this being discovered i can handle.
TELL North Carolinians you’re heading to the Research Triangle, and they’ll probably ask “Which school are you visiting?” Yet the close-knit cities of Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill are marked by more than college bars and hoops fans.

To be honest, it's hard to read past the phrase "close-knit cities," especially after reading, say, the comments in the N&O following the US News top ten story earlier this week.

But kudos to the Scrap Exchange for making the list.

. . . adding, as my friend RH reminds me, there is another college in Durham not mentioned by the NY Times.



  • Comments in the N&O were like -- yeesh.

    Re: the NYTimes -- I won't argue with their choices, but do wonder why they routed their traveler from Durham to Raleigh and back on Saturday afternoon. I guess they think that I-40 is an essential part of the experience?

    Funny, too, that their sort of reference city is Winston-Salem and not Charlotte.

  • Glad to see the mainstream media finally writing stories people care about. Too late.

    Let's give it up for the Durham haters in Rawley!
