“Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.”
—Jane Jacobs, The Death and Life of Great American Cities
How do I use this website?
The map is interactive, so it’s easy to zoom in to where you live, work, or play.
Click on any neighborhood’s shape to reveal its name and the link to its dedicated page.
You can also find your neighborhood’s page via the list found in the right-hand column.
At each neighborhood’s page, you’ll find an enlarged map and links to join their mailing list. Alternatively, you might find the moderator’s email if you’d just like to relay information to the group without joining.
If there’s no neighborhood mailing list associated with your hood, please consider creating one. Communities can always benefit from increased connectivity.
Why is my neighborhood missing?
Because no one has requested that it be added to the map yet.
What do the neighborhood colors signify?
Each color signifies which Partners Against Crime (PAC) district a neighborhood falls within:
Blue: PAC-1 neighborhoods.
Green: PAC-2 neighborhoods.
Yellow: PAC-3 neighborhoods.
Purple: PAC-4 neighborhoods.
Gray: PAC-5 neighborhoods.
Who created this map?
This map is a collaboration between Phil Bost and countless other Durham citizens. While I drew the maps and built this website, I rely on people like you to help me refine borders, communicate accurate information, and provide valuable feedback.
Running this website costs about $100 per year.

Can I make something like this for my city?
I made this using only free and/or open-source software including WordPress.org, Open Street Maps, Leaflet.js, Stamen Design (map tiles) with almost no prior experience. To this day, I don’t consider myself a coder, programmer, or designer–just someone who likes to make things. If you’d like to chat about your project or think I might be able to help, please don’t hesitate to Contact me.
You’re also welcome to download, play with, and re-use my code for your creative (or commercial) purposes. It’s available for free here.
