Outsider Perspectives

This month, The Atlantic's urban-planning website CityLab publishes a piece that asks "What the Beltline Really Means to Atlanta" with an accompanying video that plays like a flowery Beltline infomercial. The nine-minute film contemplates the Beltline's "simple ambition" of connecting 45 neighborhoods and uses clips compiled over several years (see Historic Fourth Ward Park spring to life!) This being a national publication, Atlanta must endure a few jabs, of course, like being called "a city that was once one of the least walkable places in America." [CityLab]
