James Howard Kunstler's wacky, wild tour of Atlanta

Posted By on Wed, Jun 9, 2010 at 8:31 PM

Pecanne Log's Christa points our attention to a wonderful visual tour of Atlanta, conducted by James Howard Kunstler. The world's most lovable hater of dumb growth was recently in town for the Congress for the New Urbanism's annual conference.

If you want the brutal truth, follow the link. He refers to downtown's Marcel Breuer-designed library as the "Fuhrerbunker." He makes fun of our parking decks. He does manage to say some kind things about what appears to be Broad Street, possibly my favorite downtown area because it a.) reminds me of Athens, Ga., and b.) actually feels like a city street. Unfortunately, that's just one street.

Click the photo above to view his thoughts on the city, including Atlanta's bizarre fascination with blank walls.
