Greensboro is a city with a total area of 131.8 square miles. One of the main north/south arteries through many of these these Greensboro miles is Battleground Avenue. It starts downtown and winds its way north all the way to Horse Pen Creek Road and Old Battleground Avenue. At that point, Battleground is referred to as Highway 220. It is a busy retail shopping area. It would be curious to know how many cities in the United States actually have a street named Battleground; ours is named for the Revolutionary War battleground along this very road.
The above photo features a section of Battleground Avenue at the corner of Cone Boulevard and Benjamin Parkway, specifically, the 2,600 block. It provides evidence of sunny skies this week and that Hurricane Florence has subsided in our 131 square miles of community. The abundance of yellow in the photo is a nod to today's being the last official day of summer; starting tomorrow, the community will be on high pumpkin and pumpkin spice alert. Happy Friday and have a great weekend!
