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

The Tree House Of Hope Street




If you look carefully while walking down Hope Street, you can see a small field of wildflowers, a tree house, and a campfire pit with a circle of tree stumps. I’ve never known anyone that has lived in the adjacent apartment complex, so I don’t know its history or how frequently it is presently used. There was a rotting hammock on the floor of the top level, and a decaying pulley rope as seen in the first photo.
