I think Newnan can be considered metro; it's chock full of airline pilots for one thing. If you haven't been down there lately, I can tell you that it is definitely feeling the effects of Atlanta's growth.

If Gwinnett is Atlanta, so is Newnan.

Can we all agree that Charlotte is in a league with cities like Nashville, Tampa, Indianapolis, Austin, Cleveland, etc.? And can we all agree that Atlanta is in a league with cities like D.C., Dallas, Miami, Philadelphia, Houston, etc.? So there is no need to compare a city from one league with a city from the other unless it is to help make a moving decision.

Atlanta has like four of Charlotte's skylines and has more to offer of everything...because it's a much bigger city. That's just the way things are in a bigger city. If for some reason we started comparing Charlotte to Columbia it would be the same deal - Charlotte has like four of Columbia's skyline and has more to offer of everything...because it's a much bigger city.
Deacon, as usual you are the voice of reason...unfortunately, reason seldom prevails on these city comparison threads.

Newnan is definitely "Atlanta"...it is full-on Metro. However, "Mr. North Dakota" does have it out for Atlanta.

Bismarck beckons...

I was gonna stop posting on this thread, but I had to reply to this quote because there is a slight error. Charlotte's uptown (downtown) is growing like a weed.

Have you ever heard of the Novare group? You should being that they are based in Atlanta. New comers to Charlotte are choosing the urban high rise life too!!! Check out the Charlotte projects Novare is building as well as other cities in the south.
Novare Group - Current Projects (http://www.novaregroup.com/development_projects.html - broken link)

The tallest condo tower in Charlotte is being built by a different group than Novare. This tower will stand 50 plus storeys tall.
The VUE Charlotte (http://www.vuecharlotte.com/vue_content.html - broken link)

Here is my personal video that shows the current construction of The Vue.

YouTube - Urban Charlotte

Atlanta does have more urban options than Charlotte. Nobody is debating that. Atlanta also has more suburban options too. My point is that Charlotte can show a newcomer a rail transit oriented community and a high rise condo too. Atlanta does not have the monopoly on this in dixie anymore thanks to Charlotte.

One more thing, here is a video of Charlotte's Nascar Hall of Fame site (I hate Nascar BTW) taken from the Stonewall Street light rail station. Enjoy!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6tvbInoIdI (the hall and Nascar tower is the first 7 seconds of the video)

Well, that's where you're from, and you hate the ATL...the trees, the people, the diversity, the crime, the traffic, etc.

I thought it was fitting, brother-man!

Well, fortunately with all the development going on in metro Atlanta, there wont be a lot of trees 20-30 years from now.
