Re: “Alley of broken dreams

If you look at other cities or even other popular areas of our city, there are two things that have made those areas destinations of choice - a thriving and UNIQUE local community and several stops of interest within walking distance. For example, when people tourists think of shopping here, they think of Lenox Square/Phipps plaza. Why? Its an easy train or car ride from convention centers and sporting arenas and there are so many places to shop/eat that one needn't worry about finding many tantilizing choices. There is also a thriving local component that gives tourists a chance to people watch and gives locals a place to spend an entire day without having to drive around. Centennial Park has been successful for the same reason. Just recently, I hosted a friend from another state. We spent the entire day only having to park once - first to the Aquarium, then to an early dinner and finaly closing off the night with a raucous hockey game. I'm not sure that's even possible with a place like Underground. If there is going to be any hope for it, there have to attractions which entice people to spend an entire day and a lively culture in which to emmerse oneself.
