Raleigh for August 6, 2009

August 6th, 2009
It seems like we’ve had rainy and stormy weather almost every day recently. That can be the theme of this series.

    Campbell University’s School of Law inaugural semester at the Dawson & Hillsborough site is underway. In some small way, I hope that this will add alittle more life to that section of DT Raleigh.

    Actually it has added more life. Its kinda strange seeing people walking around with bookbags in that area. Makes the right turn onto Dawson from Hillsboro a little trickier with pedestrians

    David, it looks to me like the mars pic was from Raleigh View Road.

    Great pics! Does anyone know what is being built in the northern part of downtown? I see two cranes looking east out my window @ 712 Tucker.

    You’re probably seeing the Green Square addition to the Natural Science Museum and the SECU tower.
