ATL Urbanist compared a 1909 aerial map of Atlanta, near the intersection of Trinity Avenue and Forsyth Street, with a current image of the area, and the results are both fascinating and shocking. In the last century, almost all of the buildings have been transformed into vast swaths of gray pavement. Imagine what our city could become if we replaced the parking lots with dense urban retail and living spaces. ["Before" image and info from ATL Urbanist]
