Recovery in a Cup

We asked you to show us how close the recession is to your doorstep. Here’s a sign of hope in North Carolina:


Name: Rosecrans Baldwin 

Location: Chatham County, NC

Recovery/downturn: This roadside espresso hut closed for business about 18 months ago. Now there’s a sign in the window saying they’re reopening, so I can resume ordering my macchiato with a side of fried-chicken biscuit. I call that recovery.

Distance from home: 2.5 miles
