Ninth Street

Great Nightlife & Popular for Duke Grad Students
This neighborhood refers to the apartments (Station Nine, Berkshire Ninth, Berkshire Main, etc.), townhouses, and houses on Ninth Street and surrounding roads like Hillsborough Road and Main Street. Ninth Street is by far the most popular neighborhood for Duke graduate students and young professionals in the area and the social scene is one big reason why. Expect frequent pregames, pool parties, and barbecues at Station Nine, and plenty of nearby events like Tav Tuesdays.

Beyond the social scene, Ninth Street is also a convenient neighborhood by most measures. There’s a Harris Teeter within walking distance and a restaurant for every occasion. This small area offers a lot to do.

Ninth Street — 8.8/10 Rating (based on 217 neighborhood reviews)
Neighborhood has been great. Haven't been commuting to school all that frequently for obvious reasons, but takes less than 10 minutes to do so. I can grab everything I need and meet with friends all within walking distance. Durham could use more street lights in general, but in terms of safety, I think 9th street is your best option!

Best place to live hands down. Next to the supermarket, so many food options and many complexes in the area. Near downtown and Duke. Great if you’re new in town because it is super safe. Perfect if you have a car because the only downside is that depending on what Duke school you’re in it might not be walking distance.

Ninth Street is super walkable and majority of Fuquans live in the area. Definitely worth it to pay a little more to live in walking distance of so many classmates. Plus the restaurants on Ninth Street are great, and a short walk (~3 mins) to East Campus to use the walking trail!

Everything is close: other complexes like S9, B9; bars like flying bull, the tavern, supermarkets like Harris Teeter or Whole Foods, East campus hiking route.

You can get to the school by bus (45 mi) or by car (10 min). Carpooling is very commom.

The Ninth Street area is probably the best part of Durham. But it's still lacking if you come from a city like Boston, Chicago, New York. It has a cool vibe and hipster aesthetic (without the pretentiousness or prices) but veers a little bit toward the grungy side.

Also a note on this area, I believe it's very safe compared to the city I come from (Northeast), but you still need to be a sensible person, especially at night. There is crime around here like all metropolitan areas, so just don't be stupid.

It's right behind harris teeter (a huge plus to have a 24 hour grocery store right in front of your apartment complex). The neighborhood does tend to get quiet pretty early - the only walking distance things open late are Tavern, heavenly buffaloes, cosmic cantina, and waffle house, but the neighborhood is very safe and has lots of cute stuff for the daytime!

The 9th street area has grown rapidly in the last few years. There are multiple great restaurants in the area, including Monuts Donuts, Mad Hatters, Happy & Hale, Juju, Burger Bach, and the new Saint & Co. There are two nice grocery stores (Harris Teeter and Whole Foods) within walking distance. I can walk to several coffee shops (notably Joe Van Gogh and Cocoa Cinnamon). I often go on runs or walks around the East Campus loop, which is just two blocks over from 9th street.

The 9th Street corridor is really pretty great. You are within walking distance of everything you'd need from a barber and a bank to beer and books. It is probably 5-10% more expensive (between Harris Teeter, apartment, and other shops markup) than other areas of Durham, however it is a great community if you're single and want to socialize.

The Ninth Street area is a hub of activity. There is a brand new Harris Teeter that anchors a shopping center that includes fast casual restaurants (like Panera) and fancier restaurants (like Juju) along with Pure Barre, SportsClips, and other restaurants and bars. There is also a Whole Foods within walking distance or a quick drive away.

It's also within walking distance of East Campus (including Brodie Gym and the East Campus wall running route) and "The Tavern" which is the primary Tuesday night scene for Fuqua students.

The area is fairly safe and patrolled frequently by Durham Police and Duke Police.
