Kasim Reed won't let us have an ocean unless it's a "world-class" ocean.
Dodge - The Bluff is miles away from there. You might have your areas confused.
pretty good list ! the above suggestions aren't even in Atlanta lol :^)
i also like Live Free on Boulevard
If you dont want to go to the city check out Straight Edge Tattoo it's in Woodstock 678-503-8626.
I want to be Terry Kearns when I grow up:-)
Terminus City Tattoos needs to be on this list...Shane Sudduth is the most amazing tattoo artist i have ever had work on me...
Yoga is good...but required? GTFO. And especially Atlanta? Is there something about Atlanta that makes us less limber?
Cut back on the ganja...or, if you don't do that, it's time to start.
Two thumbs up for yoga! It is required learning at all schools in India... Should be the same in America and especially Altanta!
You forgot the DeKalb History Center at the Old Court House in Decatur.
Dodge - CL's guilty conscience won't allow them to warn people about certain realities if they have to do with crime or race, unfortunately.
But I agree that a quick note addressing potential issues in the various neighborhoods should be included.
And of course, reader beware. Better run a quick Google search before venturing out into unknown areas, especially without a car.
Side note - Your name works as a full sentence warning that we could all heed:
Dodge (crime-ridden) lands, man.
Nice article -- I agree on Cabbagetown park. Great spot.
One quibble, RE: "The first 3 words that come to mind when I think of Atlanta are live, work, play. Just kidding: I'm totally disheartened by the "urban renewal" happening here." It's possible you don't understand what urban renewal is -- that's a really specific concept. You might want a different phrase here if you're just referring to mixed-use developments.
Sounds like a great idea. Has anyone spoken to the owners of Sevenanda? Where would be a good West End/Westview Location?
I feel Creative Loafing should be responsible for posting warnings in neighborhoods that can be dangerous. Knowing that people not familiar with the areas may travel into them checking them out for what you print is understandable and if someone is injured or killed because of your reporting and not including a caution may lead to Creative Loafing being sued.
creative loafing is not responsible for you being a goober. Be more aware of your surroundings next time new yorker...
This is excellent.
The ironic thing is, if they actually responded to your inqury, it would defeat the purpose.
yeah....i would too i guess.
Don't really comment here it's a list we've blogged about for years, but you omitted one. Proctor Creek redevelopment working in tangent with the Trust for Public Land, TPL and West Atlanta Watershed Alliance, WAWA has a very real possibility of a 7 mi linear water walkway flowing into dwtn over the next decade is huge and creates another unique space within the city.
You would be amazed at how may people there are in Atlanta who know little about, and care little about, the BeltLine. I know it is hard to hear, but there is another bright big world outside of Kwanza Hall's beloved OFW.
