And just to clarify: it is not "a busy airport." It is far and away the "world's busiest airport," a fact that has more depth of meaning than simply a number of annual passengers or takeoffs and landings, but is the force that drives the Southeast economy and makes Atlanta and Georgia an international gateway for business, culture and politics.
Gosh because Atlanta is the only international airport in the Southeast huh?

Look, it has national importance, but other then the busiest airport in the world, it is not a world class city yet. It is not of world importance and it isn't an S Tier city.

That title belongs to cities like New York, London, Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Los Angeles, and a few others that are known world wide.

If you think Atlanta competes with these cities, you're very much blinded from reality.

Atlanta might be an A-tier city, but even then, I doubt that. It is definitely at least B-Tier.

Most, if not, every one of these cities have an established core that is MASSIVE and very urban in nature.

I think that we've reached a consensus: The pics DO give the impression that Atlanta is a big city. The discussion is quickly deteriorating.

AtlantaGreg, I beg of you, save us from ourselves!

What can I say? I make discussions happen. Forums would be boring without drama, controversy, and clashes.

This is an important topic(not specifically this thread, but about Atlanta's status as a city) that's likely going to be talked about for many years to come. I don't think the thread should be closed/locked.

This became a large thread very quickly so it's obvious people like taking about this sort of stuff.

Ok.

In fact, variations of this topic have been discussed before (more than once), so since nothing truly new has been brought to the table compared to those threads, it's time to close the door. If you want to do a comparison with other cities, take it up in the city-vs-city room, but chances are it's been done there as well, so as always do a search first.
