As I waited for traffic to clear at the intersection of E. Edenton Street and N. Swain Street this morning, I spied a historical marker next to the sidewalk. It said the area was called “Hungry Neck” by the African-Americans who lived there in the early 1900s. I can’t find much about Hungry Neck on the Google, but it certainly is fun to say.
Heh. I’ll get the marker’s full text on the way home.
