Kinston streets a picture of
An early July morning unveils a downtown Kinston that’s downright placid….with the occasional car or truck on the streets, a few people out stirring about getting ready for the day, a bright sun peeking over the eastern horizon, a heavy dew coating grass and trees.
Strolling around the city’s business district at 7:00 am is like watching slow motion movies: some scenes featuring a few aging stars, some who are already making it big, and several new talents on the horizon.
Some who have had better days
Up and coming talents
The photographic illustrations embedded in this newsletter are examples of achievements as well as opportunities for private and public investors in downtown Kinston. In addition to those shown here, there are other examples along our streets of “aging stars,” “matinee idols” and “up and coming talents.”
Kinston’s downtown is changing for the better right before our eyes. Homegrown entrepreneurs are making it happen. Some, like the Stadiem family, have been around for 100 or more years. Alfonza Driggers at Tops-Bottoms-Soles has served customers for nearly 40 years. Others, like Suzanne Gallagher, are new on the streets of Kinston.
