Generic puff-promo from a Raleigh e-zine. The photo is over-colorized just enough to make our surface parking lots look like an enchanting waterfront . . .

This is hilarious! Over on City Data there's yet another one of those city vs city threads where the GBoi & company (which also includes our recent troll WwinsalemM85 aka YinYang) has as one of its talking points that GSO is similar to RAL in "physical feel" :roll: due to large swaths of upper end neighborhoods that Winston doesn't have and yet here you have an article in Raleigh's own city magazine which states that not only does RAL & WS look similar but to add the cherry on top that THEIR SKYLINES ARE SIMILAR as well :lol:

Since I don't comment there but just observe the carrying ons, I appreciate & give a shout out to posters such as UNCCHgrad, Royal James and some others for keeping it real and keeping the Hooterboro gang straight regarding the Camel City :rockon:

North Carolina’s Triad, High Country & Mountain West (PDF) – 12/03/2020

https://www.wellsfargo.com/com/insights ... linkLoc=fn

"Winston-Salem appears well positioned for the post-COVID era. While there have been concerns about the lack of major corporate relocations, Winston-Salem has been quietly investing in its future. We have long felt Winston-Salem’s economy would be driven more by home-grown industries rather than a transformative relocation. The development of the Innovation Quarter has been years in the making and this infrastructure is now set to bear some significant fruit. The partnership between Wake Forest Baptist Health, Wake Forest Medical School and Charlotte-based Atrium Health will inject significant new investment into the region’s healthcare sector. Atrium has committed to investing $3.4 billion in the Winston-Salem area over the next 10 years, $2.8 billion of which would be in new facilities. Plans are to build a new patient care tower at Wake Forest Baptist Health, which will include a new emergency room, operating rooms and intensive-care unit. Atrium also plans to establish a new eye care institute in the southern portion of the Innovation District. We expect more investment from Atrium and others, as healthcare moves past the pandemic, with increased focus on telemedicine, disease management, and data-driven innovation."

——

The entire article is worth a read and discusses Truist relocating, etc. It was put out by Wells Fargo’s economic group. It is a realistic and nuanced view that you would expect from an economist. I’m glad to see they are bullish on our future.

Sad to say but it looks like we’re actually #200 (see last line of article)...

The list is actually the dirtiest cities so being ranked 200 or last place means we are the “cleanest”, whatever that means.

Right. Least dirty = cleanest.

"The least dirty cities on the list? St. Paul, Minnesota; Dayton, Ohio; Madison, Wisconsin; Frisco, Texas; and, at No. 200, Winston-Salem, North Carolina."

These metrics were used:

"LawnStarter compared the 200 biggest U.S. cities across 20 key metrics including air and water quality, waste regulations, and the share of homes with signs of mice or rats."

This may not be a typical example of what is shared on this thread, but I believe it fits.

For the Love of Old Houses is a Facebook page that has over 3.2 million followers. They share houses from all over the country ("Older homes hold so much intrigue for me. The history and the charm...who can resist? Homes are from sources such as Zillow and realtor.com.")

Yesterday, they shared 810 Watson Avenue, Winston Salem, North Carolina, and it has been one of their most shared and liked homes in a while (as of this post 1900 likes, 312 comments, 302 shares). Comments include "I need to retire here" and "Lets move to NC" and "I think we need to move states" and "brb, moving to Winston Salem."

Here is the listing. Look at the time on Zillow, views and saves below. And, of course, the pending offer:

I didn't quite grow up here, but my grandparents lived within sight of this house! Many happy memories of playing in the grass "median" in front of their house. I think I remember magnolia trees we had to dodge.

I noticed today that the house on Watson sold for $36,000 (12%) over list price. Signs of a hot market...
