First, if it was not for Author Blank and his millions in land donations for Coke, Charlotte would have Coca Cola.
Bank of America just announced in the Chronicle that they will be leaving Atlanta and the Bank of America building for what? Oh Charlotte.

NC is poised to exceed Georgia in total population by 2012 if not by the 2010 census. Though Charlotte metro is not the size of Atlanta metro, Charlotte City is larger now than Atlanta City by over 200,000 folks.

Thanks to our now jailed former Mayor and the overall dismal leadership of Franklin and her court, if not for the Buckhead Business leaders and other private business support such as Blank etc., Atlanta would even be worse off than it is now. We should be thankful that it is sealed in the State Constitutional Charter that Milton County cannot be re-introduced unless we change the state constitution or Atlanta would lose close to 40% of it's tax revenue from North Fulton, of which are working diligently to remove themselves.

Now, maybe if the general population of Atlanta would ever wake up and finally elect good leadership, export the current lousy council and say goodbye to Queen Shirley then Atlanta will be the jewel of the South as it should be.

NorthPark is on another level beyond Houston Galleria.

Store directories:

NorthPark Center Dallas

What are those two links suppose to prove? It's all a matter of opinion. I've been to both and I think Houston Galleria is better.

I agree because I'm not into expensive clothes and all the fine things. However, Dallas has more "upscale" stores than Houston. For example, Dallas has Valentino's or 7 for all mankind. Houston does have some firsts itself, but usually Dallas end up getting them too.

The links were meant to demonstrate the more upscale issue, not 'better'. NorthPark having one of only three Barneys of NY flagship stores speaks volumes.

I haven't been inside the Houston Galleria in about 5 years, but friends in Cypress say it's becoming somewhat, ummmm... hood.
