Maybe you've noticed that the old Howard Johnson's Inn at Hillandale Road and I-85 has been closed and abandoned for the past few months. Most likely it wasn't able to recover from the extended shutdown during the highway widening, or maybe it was just the recession taking its toll on travelers, or maybe it's that those good things that are happening in Durham are happening in other parts of Durham.
Either way, it's been turned into quite the art gallery recently. Been meaning to get there myself and document it, but my friend Libby beat me to it.
