Be careful. She also has recipes for Chicken Divan, a French-inspired dish from the Divan Parisien Restaurant in of all places, NEW YORK CITY!

Or her Mexican Chicken recipe could encourage Richmond to "Remember the Alamo", wait that was in Texas -- the South.

That's not unique to Atlanta at all, but it did happen, and it wasn't just a handful of historic buildings. Also, the webpage didn't say that most of the early skyscrapers were demolished, but that many of them were.

Please don't take this as a swipe on Atlanta because it's not (I often defend Atlanta), but this is just one of the sad facts of the city's history. I don't feel as though I'm distorting anything. Historically, preservation just hasn't been the city's strong suit. That's pretty much the consensus among those familiar with the city's history and the history of preservation in Atlanta and I've not yet run across a reputable source that has stated otherwise.
I'm not taking offense to your statements...but it is a common misconception that Atlanta, like Charlotte and some other cities, didn't preserve its historic buildings. I've heard it said often, but it just isn't true at all - there are turn of the century buildings galore in Midtown and Downtown Atlanta. Like I said before, there have been some very noteable buildings lost to demolition, but only a handful...and only a fraction of the noteable historic structures that have been preserved.

Default Are GA and SC not the Deep South?

According to someone here, Virginia is not the South, and NC is just barely the South.

Since GA and SC are parellell to the Southern half of NC, that would mean that they are not Deep South states , but just barely in the South as well.

What do y'all think?

Some interesting websites that document historic structures and preservation in Atlanta...

A good site for viewing "then and now" photos of Downtown and Midtown Atlanta. You will notice that most of the buildings are still in place: ATLANTA TIME MACHINE

A listing of landmark/historic buildings and districts: Atlanta Urban Design Commission

Atlanta preservation lists the biggest losses in the history of Atlanta architecture: Atlanta Preservation Center (http://www.preserveatlanta.com/advocacy.htm - broken link)

A walk through the different downtown districts and information historic buildings in each: Architecture

Are you completely out of control with regards to this forum? How many inane threads can one person come up with?

I was just thinking the very same thing Deacon when I noted the subject line and then read the topic. We're starting to get an overdose here that is akin to what we went through with the "O" word. Won't say it though. :-)

But it's closer to DC than to any major city in NC. DC influences Richmond more than any city in NC.
