Beautiful old cobblestone is peeking through the pavement at Peachtree Walk and 13th Street.  Nearby is the former home of renowned journalist and author Celestine Sibley, which sits boarded up and for lease.  A giant magnolia tree shields it from the ugly rear of the 14th Street Marriott.  

The original brick paving surface of North Highland Avenue has been beautifully exposed near its intersection with North Avenue.  I’m surprised it wasn’t buried farther down!
Atlanta’s potholes suck but this is one I can appreciate.

Auburn Ave, Carroll St, Broad St, Decatur St and plenty of others were all known by other names at various times…

People are putting the paper to bed Tuesday night when that old familiar call comes: “Pigs are busting people on 11th Street.” So our crack riot-trained team of reporters and photogs converge on the scene, to find: a big red fire truck, brandishing its fire hoses at a still (slightly) smoldering can of garbage; a Journal/Constitution, paper-box (Right On!) blocking the Peachtree entrance onto 11th; a small scattering of freaks (“Community People” we call them) hustling and bustling about in customary gaiety, exclaiming on the near riot; and the familiar voice of Harky (The Rev. Klinefelter)’first far away, then nearing and finally turning the corner of Peachtree onto llth.
