    What's really sad about the Braggtown area is that it was once a great place full of young families it now home to many older retired people who now have to live as though they're prisoners in their own homes as when they venture out they are often victims of crimes and sometimes even within their homes. It's sad.

    How horrible. At one time Braggtown was a good part of town but not for some time now. I imagine that one day they will say the same for further northern Durham, but I hope not. 68_dodge_polara

    You really need to move with your hate for 98% of Durham. This also is not in Braggtown area as you stated. Braggtown only reaches out to Frasier street and this is a bit farther out down the rd.
