Chapel Hill

Chapel Hill, NC: Franklin StreetFor most people who live in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, there is nowhere else in the state they can see themselves living. That's because many people in Chapel Hill see the rest of the state the way the ancient Athenians saw their city, as an island of intelligence and culture in a sea of stupidity. (Sort of the way New Yorkers see the rest of the country). It was Jesse Helms who opposed the creation of the North Carolina Zoo by suggesting they just put a fence around Chapel Hill and referred to UNC as the "University of Negroes and Communists". But Jesse is gone now and there may be hope for the rest of the state in its quest to join the 21st century. As fair or unfair an appraisal this may be, Chapel Hill still acts as a magnet for anyone whose intelligence, politics and creativity make them a poor fit for small-town life.
