Fayetteville, N.C.'s red light district was nationally known. It was located in downtown Fayetteville on Hay Street. Many of the sexually oriented businesses had all Asian girl staffs. Fayetteville was nicknamed Fayettenam because the sex shops resembled the red light district in Saigon.

During the Vietnam War, Hay Street provided a Wild West atmosphere. Hay Street was talked about by soldiers all over the world. Illegal drug use, hookers, strippers and pimps were present when young men nervously awaited their futures as soldiers fighting in Vietnam.
