Scenes From North Patterson and Glenn

This post is a continuation of my exploration of the old North Winston neighborhood of Winston-Salem, NC.  Here, the long steady decline in tobacco and textile manufacturing, along with many other factors, has led to wide spread urban decay.  North Patterson Ave & Glenn Ave intersect at an extreme angle leaving a narrow triangular block on the southern side. The whole block is abandoned and in ruin.  I found several opportunities to capture the ironic beauty lurking in urban decay.

  1. I am hopeful that the solid-looking corner building will one day be re-loved and turned into something very useful, like a wonderful cafe! A great spot to view life going by from the windows on the left.
