Densest towns in NC Originally uploaded by Payton Chung

1. Carrboro, the ex-milltown turned grad-student ghetto that was Chapel Hill’s proletarian neighbor for many years, has been dethroned as North Carolina’s densest town. Instead, the new TND of Lake Park in Union County has the state’s highest population density. (Chart from USA Today’s online Census 2010 tool.)

2. “The telephone has a very rude propensity to interrupt people.” – Miss Manners, quoted by Pamela Paul in the NYT Magazine

3. Wicker Park may be one of the few places ever where an organic vegan quick-service restaurant replaced a drive-through Burger King. Perhaps it’s not really destined to be just a western extension of bro-tastic Lincoln Park. (Via Spyguy at SSC.)
