Chapel Hill

West Franklin Street, Chapel Hill, NC

For 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 ignorance. (Sort of the way New Yorkers see themselves compared to 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. He also referred to UNC as the "University of Negroes and Communists". Though Jesse is gone and progressivism in North Carolina is on the rise, Chapel Hill still acts as a magnet for anyone whose intelligence, politics and creativity make them a poor fit for small-town life.
