The problem is, Atlanta isn't a real city. New York is a real city. (As is Mexico City, London, Paris, etc.) In Manhattan there is true transit infrastructure. You can walk just a few blocks to get on a train that will eventually get you to within a few blocks of where you need to go. Not so here. MARTA is a good start, but doesn't go where people live, or even where most people work. Busses can run every 45 minutes if at all. This is pathetic. So, Atlanta will become paved and gridlocked, because that is cheaper in the short run.
