I've just downed the last sip of a perfect Manhattan at a restaurant almost too fancy to warrant my presence beyond this barstool. Moments ago, I was face-to-face with a massive installation by one of the 21st-century's most renowned living artists, the vision of his sprawling multimedia collage looming as gloriously in my head as it still is over a moving crowd a few hundred yards behind me.... | more...

Shortly after the Civil War, Ohio newsman Whitelaw Reid visited Atlanta and encountered barren land and madmen.

"The soil of the country, for many miles in all directions, is poor," he wrote. "But the people were infected with the mania of city building."

This line, plucked from the archives by author LeeAnn Lands for her book The Culture of Property: Race, Class, and Housing Urban Landscapes...

There's Blandtown, which was apparently named after a freed slave. And the teeny-tiny Just Us community along the Atlanta Beltline. And Carver Hills, the appropriately named neighborhood deep in northwest Atlanta that offers one of the most breathtaking views of the downtown skyline. In addition to the Old Fourth Wards, Inman Parks, Midtowns, and other well-known villages within the city... | more...
