West Midtown, Atlanta

A couple of photos of the White Provisions area off of Howell Mill Rd, taken just before a dinner trip to Yeah Burger (which has an amazing slaw dog). New York Times did a nice article and photo gallery on West Midtown in 2009.

I’ve got a mixed relationship with the place. Car traffic can get horrible on Howell Mill, sidewalk coverage is spotty, no bike lanes, no public parks, and the bus doesn’t run frequently enough to make transit a viable alternative to cars for many, in my opinion. But there are some great restaurants and stores here and a few really nice apartment & condo buildings. It’s got the potential to be a great urban space some day.
