Durham, North Carolina
Laura Friedrich was drawn to Durham partly because of Pinhook, a music club that welcomes a diverse clientele. “I was starting to play around with DJ’ing, and I was interested in throwing parties,” Friederich says. “Pinhook will let you do things even if they don’t necessarily make money. They give you a lot of creative freedom.” Friederich bought her house with help from the Durham Community Land Trustees.
