This photo of Tate Street was taken on Sunday. If you are local, you may have noticed that the Subway Sandwich Shop closed. Indeed, the little patch that looks like tape on the front of the building (between the blue and red cars) was formerly a Subway. It has been said that the space will become a tattoo parlor. If so, it will be well positioned between Greensboro College and UNCG. Soon, college students and professors can contemplate tattoo designs between classes.
UNCG is purchasing some of the property on Tate Street as part of their expansion plans. Tate Street is nestled on the edge of College Hill Historic District, Greensboro's oldest neighborhood and the city's first designated historic district. It is a dynamic street with a lot of history. The College Hill Neighborhood Association is active, and works to promote their neighborhood. While businesses may come and go and properties bought and sold, for a neighborhood with two pre-Civil War houses and many from the early 20th century, every indication is that the neighborhood will thrive for a very long time. With UNCG moving onto Tate Street, it is anticipated that real estate values will rise. Let's hope the videographer in the foreground got some good footage to share, especially if the video is related to the upcoming changes.*
