    CCS, Lyle, what great answers...just displace the people there. Then where would they go? Don't really think of the far reaching consequences of your ideas I guess?

    This area on

    I've commented about this area in the past. It's on SE Maynard just off Chatham. I work nearby and know the neighborhood very well. Drugs, heavy alcohol consumption and assaults are common. Most don't speak english and very few seem to be interested in learning it. Cary would be better off without them.

    No surprises here. That cluster of decrepitude really should be bulldozed and turned into another nice park.
