Adventures in Bankhead
(Editor's note: Lianna Shen is one of our newest interns at CL. She's not only new to Atlanta, she's new to the U.S. Below, she shares her thoughts about some of what she's seen on her way to the office.)
I have a confession: Iâ€™m Canadian, born and bred.
I moved to Mableton from Toronto this month to intern at Creative Loafing. The quickest route to the office from my home is Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway, aka Bankhead Highway.
On my first day at CL, my boyfriend insisted that I take something other than "Hood Road," but I refused. I didnâ€™t want to get lost on my first day. When I got to work, my supervisor made some comments about Bankhead Highway, notably that he remembered hearing about some guy getting pulled out of his truck and stabbed awhile ago.
