Carrboro Bottleneck - 1/24/2012
Carrboro is basically a bedroom community, where people who work at or study at UNC over in Chapel Hill lay down for the night. All day they work at UNC only to pay the "man" each month to rent a medium density apartment. The apartments are small, overpriced, and have few redeeming qualities. Some apartments here advertise workout centers however these “workout centers” are the size of a broom closet. Main Street Carrboro is really just a bottleneck between the dumpy medium density apartments and the Campus of UNC. The other parts of Carrboro consist of small mill houses (that have no architectural value) they are planked with asbestos shingles, have rotting foundations, and are over priced. The redeeming qualities are, the bars, the food trucks and the people are very friendly, and also a lot of great bands come here to play, but I think they all believe it’s still the 1990’s.

lively and progressive community - 2/1/2011
Carrboro has a strong civic life with a lot of local participation and visionary politics towards making a more sustainable and just community. The center of town has public space and walkable streets with local businesses places for people to congregate. People are friendly and welcoming. There is a wonderful Farmer's Market and strong local food and farming culture that are well supported.

Institutionalized racism and poverty persist here, as in most places, so most restaurants I find myself dining with white folks while being served by Latino and Blacks. There are some spaces that are more integrated than others.

great place to live - 9/16/2005
Carrboro is a small town, adjoining much more well known Chapel Hill. It's quieter and has a great vibe. A very "left of center" town, the mayor is openly gay and was relected twice. There is an excellent Food Co-Op in town, as well as a great music and arts scene.Dave Matthews, Ben Folds,etc played the Cats Cradle in Carrboro years back..still going strong today. Nice restaurants too. The school district is the best in the state. Close to the Research Triangle Park as well as UNC and Duke...but out of the bustle. Lived there for 4 years and miss Read More
