Reusing Atlanta's Railroad Right-of-Ways
"Atlanta is taking a fresh look at its old railroad lines, those arteries of commerce that breathed life into the city in its infancy and now are potential sites of redevelopment."
..." 'Atlanta obviously is a city built as a result of its railroads and has benefited from railroads paying a significant amount of taxes,' McQuigg says. 'But Atlanta has struggled with its status as a railroad town for many years. As the railroad gulches were built, railroads became less a part of everyday life.' "
