Re: “An interview with a neighbor: Ronald Edwards

Me and my two sisters lived in cabbagetown in 1955 with our grandmother and we were taken from her and put in foster homes for 10 years. Does anyone remember Mrs Smith, we lived across the street from a little store, on brenean ave. right on the corner.Our names were Williams. would love to hear from someone who may still be around and remember us. Thanks!!

Not the best one in the serious but glad he got a chance to give his thoughts.

Decatur had plenty going on before Blanchard came in. What a pompous ass.

Re: “An interview with a neighbor: Wendy Rutherford

Nice to "meet" you, Wendy. My fiancee and I moved to Smyrna from downtown last month and like you, we absolutely love it here. You definitely hit the nail on the head regarding Smyrna restaurants - South City Kitchen and Eleanor's are gems, but we're desperate for more quality, local places to enjoy on the weekends. Anyway, great interview and perhaps we'll see you around one day.

Re: “An interview with a neighbor: Dave Blanchard

Avondale has alot of potential but as stated in the article, the college ave section between avondale and decatur looks like the worst suburban sprawl there is.

Decatur is a good place, but its not great. Go into the world to see great town centers. This one is mediocre at best. Its missing something. There is a parking lot (2 actually) in the middle of the town square. Limited green space. How about a water fall statue or something to give it some charachter as a community gathering place. The wife and I will stop by Decatur for a restaurant, but to wander around....boring.

Re: “An interview with a neighbor: Dave Blanchard

This is why I have such high hopes for Palookaville opening up in Avondale. Not only for delicious food near home, but to help revitalize that downtown area.

Re: “An interview with a neighbor: Dave Blanchard

Avondale does need something worthwhile on the food front. Thankfully, Mr. Jim Stacy is doing just that. Keep your eyeballs peeled for Pallookaville, currently in progress and soon to be making Avondale a place to travel for a dang fine meal.

Re: “An interview with a neighbor: Wendy Darling

Great comments from Wendy! I agree on all counts. And I love this quote:

"Fairlie-Poplar District has a scent of being a small town or village, which is very surprising. You run into all your neighbors on the street. You get very familiar with all the storeowners, restaurant owners, security guards for the buildings, GSU police, and all the different people."

So true. It's one of the things I love about living here. I'll end up singing that Sesame Street song "who are the people in your neighborhood" in my head sometimes because of all the familiar faces I get to see on the street daily.

It's not a place where you can just drive your car into a garage and ignore things going on outside your house, and that's a good thing. The environment forces you to be face to face with your neighbors and the store owners in the neighborhood. And yes, you're forced to be face to face with social ills like homelessness too, but that's also a good thing because otherwise it's "out of sight and out of mind."

We've really got a great group of people living here. I've lived in a few different places in and around Atlanta and downtown is by far my favorite.
