The National Journal, a Washington DC-based magazine, provides a thoughtful report this week on the progress of the Beltline titled "Atlanta's Own High Line May Finally Erase Some Racial Divisions." The piece ventures from Church Bar on Edgewood Avenue to the West End and Historic Fourth Ward Park to determine that the multi-use trail has become a "connective tissue" for neighborhoods historically (and intentionally) divided by railroad. And this description should inspire some chest-beating across the ATL: "It's like the High Line in Manhattan, but to a much larger scale."
