Default Midtown Atlanta

My husband and I recently started a blog where we track the developments in Midtown, among other things. Here is the link: http://AroundMidtown.com.

Nice blog. You might want to add the Midtown Mile link to your links area, too: Atlanta's Midtown Mile (http://www.midtownmile.org/ - broken link)

It's wonderful that there are folks like you promoting residential growth in Atlanta's core. From what I have seen via Virtual Earth much of Greater Atlanta, including my aunt and uncle's home in Acworth, consists of endless low-density suburban growth. Encouraging more of these folks to move back into the city with all of your wonderful articles is quite commendable. In the long-term increasing density in the city core will have great benefits---the city's tax base will receive a much-needed boost to permit city officials to wisely spend those additional revenues to hire more police officers and to improve other city services and amenities in order to make Atlanta a better city. One gripe I have about Atlanta is that for a metro area of 5,100,000 its skyline is quite disappointing. It's grass-roots efforts such as yours that will encourage developers to build high-rise residential towers in Downtown and Midtown that will bring more 24/7 foot traffic into town to deter criminal activity, improve the nightlife scene, and to add more depth and variety to the skyline. More suburbanites moving into the city will also encourage greater MARTA ridership and less congested freeways---leading ultimately to less air pollution. I enjoy your site very much!
