Cary, NC – Despite the Academy Street construction nearing its climax, Downtown Cary has continued to thrive on Friday nights, developing what might be called an underground hipster scene.
When digging is over and the orange cones have disappeared, the hordes will descend on Downtown Cary for an entertaining, walkable and local Friday night out.
But with the smoke of change still hanging thick in the air, it’s only the intrepid who venture downtown. And yet, the adventurous already number in the many hundreds, every Friday night.
I’m just saying: imagine when the streets are open and the smoke clears.
Here are a few pictures of what it looked like last Friday night. For a look further back into the past, check out these past photo essays on the transformation of Downtown Cary:
