Then the other thing I expect in time is that changes will be coming to the Galleria retail area, which is just cross the pedestrian bridge. Battery South, if you will.



Clearly the difference is that I've been watching the games, exerting my good mojo. I didn't have TV at home last year, now I do.



Yeah, well I didn't claim it was, ok?

You're not my real dad!
Has transit began running across the 285 bridge?

I haven't heard or seen anything about it. I don't think so, but I don't know.

Having walked across that bridge a couple of times, I know the space reserved for it is definitely there.

The pedestrian bridge is a pretty short walk, no real need for transit to cross.

I am a Yankees fan but I've been to several games, as well as just sitting by the pavilion watching from the big screen.


I only have three more wishes; (1) the Braves were an AL team so I can see the Yankees at least 6x a year (2) some more of the stores fill up soon (3) they build a Trader Joes in the vacant plot up off Cobb Parkway.

My neighbor works at The Battery and she tells me that Fresh Market is still in discussions of opening there. Also, many/most of the empty stores are leased but openings have been delayed for whatever reason

MY WIFE son and I say in 111 row 1 and had the time of our lives. Everything from the pregame honors to the game winning homerun and every tomahawk chop in between. The people were friendly; the crowd was into it, the fan experience was engaging, and even the wall home in the pouring rain didn't seem to bother anyone.... good job ATL.made me want to live there.....and hopefully will be going t9 mpre games up there soon!
Yeah, thereís a great vibe at the stadium that we just love. My kids also enjoyed this yearís addition of the DJ spinning records betweeen innings and the accompanying break dancers! The people around us at the last game were dancing around and having a great time, and we had some great conversations with the senior citizens next to us and the group of millennials in front of us. Also, the pregame atmosphere in the Battery is just awesome, so much more vibrant than Turner Field. I actually decided to buy a multi-game package this year and will be going to many more games.

I just got me some tickets for a game in May. Seats look great. 10% work discount is pretty sweet.

Iíll admit, I wasnít for the move, but the new stadium is really better, and Summerhill isnít being left behind with nothing so Iím good. The Battery still needs some type of real transit connection though (not some poor Cobblinc route). Cumberland could really be better than Perimeter if it had transit.

These Braves are doing great. 7-0 in 8th inning against the Mets. 6 more outs and we're about to be on top of the division.

Damn bullpen! Really enjoyed the game tonight, though. My first game at STP, finally. Weather was good and everything. Stadium is super nice, I like how old-timey it looked with the rafters. And not a bad seat in the house. Attendance looked good tonight. Probably at least 30,000+.

And actually you CAN totally see the Atlanta skyline clearly from the seats between various buildings and scoreboards, both Midtown and Buckhead. So that's cool. Just have to be on the upper levels.

Getting in and out of the area was easy. Parking was cheap and easy. Got in the car, 5 minutes later I was already home.

The Battery really added a great atmosphere around as you're walking up to the gates.

All in all, enjoyed it much better than Turner.

And the Braves are in 1st place, despite the loss tonight.
