Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

Horse Track Alley





Horse Track Alley is a public road that you won’t find on any map. In fact, I had no idea it even had a name, until about 2-3 months ago when this sign popped up out of no where. It’s very near where I live, and I walk down it frequently when out with the dogs.
It’s also the first sign I’ve ever seen that had the double zero designation. It begins on Clark Ave near Cameron Village, and dead ends behind some businesses on Hillsborough St. (El Rodeo being the only one I can recall at the moment).
Anyone have any info on the origin of the name? Are there any other designated “alleys” in Raleigh with their own street sign?
