Woolworth's Building, Downtown Greensboro
Greensboro, N.C. - It's frequently called the heart of a city. However, as cities grow, the "downtown" area often dies.
Now, Greensboro is trying to encourage families to spend more time downtown. Greensboro's downtown area is home to more than 2,000 businesses and more than 28,000 jobs.
The latest effort to draw people downtown is called the "Pop Up Promenade." Families can grab a bite to eat at a food truck, watch street performers and check out local artists.
The event runs every Friday and Saturday night from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. through the end of June. You'll find the pedestrian showplace on February One Place between Davie and Greene Street.
