I agree. But it's a long ways from becoming Memphis. The young professionals are a city's life blood and Atlanta still has that. It could be better but it's far from being bad.

Birmingham is trying to do what Chattanooga did. Not sure how that's going

I've only been a couple of weekends in the past two years, but it doesn't look to be going all that great, but if they just started, that's to be expected. It really took about 20 years for everything to get to this point with most of the growth coming in the last 5.

My first job out of college was overseeing the repair of the US27 Bridge over W 20th Street next to Finley Stadium.  That was a fun experience.

Did a pretty good job, I drive that way every week.

I wouldn't go that far. The young professionals will stay inside the loop for years to come.

New falcons stadium is literally 100 yards from the Georgia dome so it will stay in the heart of downtown.

Maybe, it's just sad to see that Atlanta hasn't moved very much from the early 2000's. If they had done what we did up in Chatt, Atlanta would have launched itself into one of the top cities in the world. It would have been exponentially more successful. Hell, they might have gotten that damn bullet train built by now.

Turner seriously in that rough an area?  Great American is right on the Ohio River looking over into Kentucky. Right in the heart of some awesome breweries and restaurants.

No, it isn't. I've been downtown over where the Greyhound station is, walked past an alleyway with a bunch of homeless people sleeping, past a strip club, rode MARTA down to Tech's campus, all while looking touristy as Posted Image, and no one so much as looked at me funny. Turner could have been in that same position, There were plenty of great spots for some good nightlife kinda stuff down there, but Atlanta never took the initiative.

Too many black people, scares away the rich suburbanites.
