In a startling piece of shoe-leather journalism, the AJC has found that a gun-toting Buckhead investor has scooped up 10 percent of English Avenue's residential properties — in the shadow of the new Falcons stadium, near the Beltline's future Westside Trail — and is cavalierly letting many of the houses and apartments molder. This despite rampant drug traffic, prostitution, illegal dumping and even deaths linked to the properties. For anyone with an interest in the evolution of Atlanta's western neighborhoods, the piece is worth the price of paywall admission many times over. [AJC; subscriber]
