In case you haven’t picked up Sunday’s edition of the New York Times, you might want to rush out and get one if for no other reason than to check out the two page spread on the life and culture in the Raleigh-Durham area (from Locopops, to The Indy Week’s Grayson Currin, Only Burger and the onslaught of food trucks that have popped up in the past few years, to Raleigh Denim, Foundation, Kings Barcade and more).
Writer Stephen Heyman gives a short introduction to our city(ies) and states that “music is everywhere”, calls us a “hipster vibe factory”, expands on how much great food is in our area (from the food trucks to the restaurants), and calls the area “North Carolina’s Axis of Cool”. We’ll that that as a compliment.
Below are quick photos of the spread (click on the photos to enlarge) and we’ll update this article (with better photos of digital versions) once the NYTimes updates their own TMagazine site to include the Raleigh-Durham spread….if they do at all.
UPDATE: You can view the digital version of the magazine HERE and the Raleigh-Durham specific section HERE (which includes Raleigh Rickshaw and Vintage 21) or we’ve added the digital version of the article below.
