Buckhead

A stately Buckhead mansion, photographed by Imke Lass

I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but Atlanta's own Buckhead Community has made the New York Times Travel Magazine.

It's always so awkward to read about Atlanta or Georgia in something like the New York Times. I cringe when I read quotes like, "We are excited to bring Milan and New York right here to Buckhead."

I have to disagree with the writer claiming the Governor's Mansion is one of B'head's grand old homes. It's not! The house that was there b/f was a grand old house, but they razed that for the governor's mansion. I've got to let the rest of the article sink in! ;)

Wasn't the Gov. Manse built in the 1960's? It is grand in the sense that it is large, but old? I guess in Atlanta, that term is relative.

Very interesting article. I had forgotten about that crash at Orly, and had never really thought about its implications on the cultural establishments of the city.

I think the Gov's mansion is like Greek Revival on steroids--not a good thing. And West Paces has turned into the McMansion center of the world.

I can't wait to walk out of Hermes one day with my kids (after I have some), and say "I can remember when this street was bars as far as the eye could see!"

I thought that was an interesting point too. We have always been told that Atlanta has an art scene because of the Orly crash, not a stunted one in spite of it.

West Paces has had some TERRIBLE additions in the past few years, but it still has some of my favorite houses in Atlanta.

My friends and I were probably the "girls gone wild" they refer to in the earliest bar scene days. I am glad that as soon as we grow out of that phase, they tear it all down for high end shopping. Bring on the Prada store!
