What about all the money in Candler Park, Inman Park, Virginia-Highlands, Morningside, Ansley Park, Sherwood Forest, Druid Hills.

Then so are Beverly Hills, Hillsborough, Mountain Brook, Bronxville, Scarsdale, River Oaks, Highland Park, Clayton, Coral Gables, McLean, Bethesda, Bryn Mawr, Bala Cynwyd, Sewickley, Brookline and Shaker Heights. Sheesh.
Of course there are going to be areas less urban etc, but the amount in the city of Atlanta is ridiculous.

Sheesh indeed. Come on people.

"Telling them" is irrelevant to the fact that it's not efficient use of land for a city this size.

Just how many square feet would you, the great divider of lands, allot to each person?
I'm not alotting land, just noting how ridiculous the northern third of the "city" is.

I'm speaking in practical terms of a functional city, nothing else.

What would have if the Vegas strip broke off Vegas? Or if Hollywood broke off of LA?

Take a little time to visit some other cities and you'll find that Atlanta isn't much different in this respect. Hell, even a very contained city like Venice has relatively low density SFH neighborhoods.
But there are cities in the world that fit your vision of what a city should be. Two come to mind: St Petersburg and Moscow, Russia. They transition from high density to country without any introduction to vile upscale historic upscale SFH neighborhoods. It's a legacy from the Communist days. You should go see them. And stay.

You obviously know very little about cities and demonstrate that by ignorant, childish posts.

Communism, really?

Grow up.

Educate yourself, and then come back and post.
