DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) — As Dr. Henry McKoy stood near the corner of East Umstead and Grant Streets in Durham, he glanced over at a gated and overgrown site, formerly known as Fayette Place.
“I just see a tremendous opportunity. I see hope. I see opportunity to really catalyze the community,” he said looking at the property.
“What I see also is an opportunity for the community to reclaim and regroup from what was really taken from them years ago,” McKoy said.
