Sure, so that border between Nelson and South Nelson is where "Prime Metro" and "Metro but not prime" happens?

I believe this is true.


And the sweet children of South Nelson (incorporated and unincorporated) are in the Creekview High Cluster--which is total outer suburban Metro Atlanta.

Like Anticos at the Battery. They take the cool part of eating in an old building in the kitchen and just make a pretty generic eatery w/ an open kitchen. I know location it's more about the location being closer, but it's like they take the real thing, whitewash it and throw it in a "safe place" for suburbanites. I know I'm being overly critical, but I can't help but think it.
But is that location really that "suburban"?

I remember awhile ago there was a poster comparing Atlanta to DFW saying Atlanta is multi polar cause so many jobs and etc are in the suburbs..............nah

DFW is multi polar,

Atlanta is pretty centralize

But because Atlanta is just 132 sq mi Atlanta never annex modernly "the city"

If Atlanta had Houston 600 sq mi it would pretty much would gobble up most of the metro employment, amenities, and etc. "the city stuff"

I mention this before most major cities have large city limits

London 607 sq mi
Moscow 970 sq mi
Tokyo 844.66 sq mi
Mew York 302.643 sq mi
Berlin 344.3 sq mi
Mexico City 573 sq mi
São Paulo 587.3039 sq mi
Shanghai 2,448 sq mi
Lagos 385.9 sq mi
Dubai 497.1 sq mi
Santiago 247.6 sq mi
Nairobi 269 sq mi
Kiev 324 sq mi
Riyadh 694 sq mi
I'm not even going to post Melbourne and Sydney

The minority that don't Paris, SF, DC and etc have urban suburbs over 300 sq mi anyways. which is my point.

So while Canton is too far out.

The Cumberland area is the opposite it's too far in to be "whitewash it and throw it in a "safe place" for suburbanites." it's under 300 sq mi, so it suppose to be part of the city or the city inner ring suburbs.

I would actually put Metro Atlanta's southeastern "fringe" as far out as Jackson/Jenkinsburg in Butts County. I personally know lots of folks that work in the airport area and even Downtown Atlanta that live out that way. I KNOW all of them would claim"Metro Atlanta" and the commuting patterns would support this. I agree with Moreland on the southwest side.
