FWIW, this may be a good time for us to revisit the Wikipedia entry for this part of town (which is actually labelled "Midtown West," incidentally):

Midtown West - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

They define the boundaries as follows: "It is roughly bordered by Howell Mill Road, Marietta Street, Brady Avenue and Tenth Street."

Oh no, Lady Oakhurst--I knew it wasn't you...lol!

I just wanted to reiterate that someone said something similar--and hoped to dare them to reveal him or herself!


Yes--it definitely sounds like a realtor's press release idea.

Yes, I've seen it.

I didn't post it here, because--though it had good parts--the entry seemed too "realtor-y" and "developer-y."

And those boundaries cover an area that is very small--and is very vague.

Do you want to keep updating/editing/revising the entry based on the "soon-to-be official" boundaries established in this thread and the reality that it really should be known as West Midtown???

Right, I'd bet my butt that the author is the first source listed Midtown West

Actually, yes! I figure that sort of gives us a goal with this thread. "We the people" should be taking Wikipedia back from the captains of industry!!! Or something.

But seriously, I do think we can improve on the description there.

You can actually "move" a Wikipedia page, which is really just renaming it. It's pretty simple to do, but you have to have sources that support the name change.
