Mixed-Income Housing Success in NC

"In one unusual spot in Raleigh, you can find kids of many races, from the poorest to some of the richest, playing basketball, soccer and lacrosse -- across the street from public housing," writes Matthew Eisley in the News & Observer.

A crime-ridden project was demolished to make way for "a mix of public housing, subsidized and market-rate apartments, townhouses and single-family houses. ... Where walking used to be a hazard and even driving past risked drawing threats or bullets, now children play without fear."
