When you say Auburn, Auburn Road immediately comes to mind – the main street. It doesn’t look modern – it hasn’t changed in 20-30 years…….. I know it’s dirty and crazy but you find …... a part of you in Auburn. Something spiritual pulls you in - like a hometown. I think people see something of themselves and their culture in this place. - participant, Auburn People Place Project, 2003
