Abstract:
The East End Connector in Durham may speed up a trip between the city and Raleigh, but it will tear a neighborhood apart. At least 24 households, seven businesses, a public park, and two churches will be paved over to construct the roadway. Some residents are looking forward to the new change, but other residents fear about what the construction will do to surrounding neighborhoods and whether they will be fairly compensated. A comparison between this project and the project that affected the Hayti neighborhood in Durham is also made. Both projects were done in the name of progress.

Abstract:
The Higgs neighborhood in Greenville, North Carolina is approximately one-hundred years old and continues to survive as the city expands. The fifty-block area of Higgs was considered a good part of town until the early 1950s when East Carolina University entered a period of growth, triggering development towards other parts of town. This article discusses the history of the neighborhood, changing demographics, and renovation of the Roxy Theatre.
