Good article, nice press for the city and an accurate depiction of Main Street's general progress and the mood specifically during the past few weeks. Thanks for sharing.

I'm so glad this chapter in South Carolina's history is coming to an end. Almost ironically, the flag has likely caused more harm to Columbia - almost certainly the place of the least support for it - than any other city in the state.

It is sort of morphing into a feel-good story at this point with it coming down so quickly, though caused of course by a horrible one.

Very interesting. You don't like the article in Travel and Leisure on Charleston, but you love this article about Main Street, Columbia in the N. Y. Times.
Seems to me this article was about the flag coming down. I saw nothing about a depiction of Main Street's general progress.

Are you serious?

All I said was Charleston outranking Paris and Rome is ridiculous (a sentiment shared by most who weren't Charleston boosters). Since you don't seem to have great reading comprehension, I'll remind you that I stated several times how much I love Charleston, but have enough sense of reality to see it in context.

The NYT article was about the flag, but discussed Columbia in that context as well. It showed Columbia for what it is: a state capital moving in fits and starts into the future, like the rest of the South. If you missed that paragraph, you either didn't really read the article or, as I suspect, didn't comprehend it well.

Also, let's not compare the New York Times with Travel & Leisure. They aren't the same thing at all.

You know it's odd..... But the link to that article (and I have not changed the link at all, you can see it's unedited) now lacks the reference to the coffee shop and to Bourbon and to the nice sidewalks of Main Street I remember distinctly reading. Strange.

Strange. I guess someone decided to edit it out. I think I might email the writers to see if there is another link to the older version.

There was no article on Charleston in Travel and Leisure magazine; that was a ranking. You're aware of the difference, aren't you?

That is odd. When I read the article, it discussed the revitalization of Main St, specifically the streetscaping and Bourbon and Drip.
