It seems you can't turn around in Atlanta these days without bumping into a zombie. Okay, that may be an exaggeration. But there have been a lot of zombie stories in the Atlanta media lately, and the trend extends to the rest of the U.S. Then there was the hubbub over the Atlanta-based Centers For Disease Control release of a guide to preparing for a zombie apocalypse on their blog. And now two more intriguing recent developments: first, Atlanta employing a George W. Bush-esque strategy of antagonizing the zombies, as evidenced by the title of this New York Times piece: Zombie Apocalypse? Atlanta Says Bring It On. Then, our discovery of an architectural competition for designing the best zombie-proof house. We at Curbed Atlanta don't believe that a true, full life can be lived in fear. At the same time, it is our duty to keep you abreast of developments in real estate, neighborhoods, architecture and news vital to the civic life of Atlanta. So we're going to keep an eye on this zombie business.
