I'll go with Phillips Arena for obvious reasons (LOL), but also some not so obvious reasons. The Arena is located in one of the most fascinating urban areas found anywhere. One reason is that it is right next door to the CNN center, and across the street is the storied Centennial Olympic Park. The other is that it is located in one of the few areas in the city that you can view the Downtown Viaducts. Not many people know this, but Downtown for the most part sits on stilts about 100 feet above the actual ground.

There is an entire network of Subway, Freight and forgotten tunnels all underneath that area.

For instance, the transit. People in Atlanta acutally think they have a good transit system.
For a southern city yes and to be ranked 7th in USA is great being there are lots of major cities without great transportation no rail at all... For us there is lots too praise we see it everyday you dont... WHy cant you just go to another forum....

I would have never known that. I knew about the portion over the underground, but not most of downtown.

I know exactly where you are talking about too because I got a chance to down into the subway several years back. I want to say that that was Norfolk Southern down there too. It may still be there, but it was a while ago since I was down on that end.

Everyone that I know who has moved to Atlanta has complained about their transit. MARTA IS AWFUL!!!

Honestly, it doesn't matter if I have never stepped foot in Atlanta. Anyone can tell from the number of stations and number of riders per day that their transit sucks.

Stop living up to your screenname.

Dude you got some issues, every thing you said is a attack you even attack New Orleans when it's not even with in the topic of this thread. You brought up New York why? this is about Atlanta vs Dallas and not to mention ALL your comments are rude! We get it you hate Atlanta, you have a east coast superior complex and you really came here to argue why you feel the east coast better.
