Superlative Atlanta, Chester Smolski Feb 1978

Superlative Atlanta, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"With the passing of each year a new superlative is added: the third largest convention city; the third city in the post-war period to construct a rapid transit system; the second busiest airport in the world; the safest mass transportation system in the country; and with direct flights to London in the offing, this major commercial, industrial and financial center of the Southeast can truly claim to be a New International City. Atlanta is all of these."

New Spirit In Old Savannah - A City With Plans, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"A large downtown is normally characterized by tall buildings because demand in this most accessible location is strong, with intensive use of the land being the result.

Such is not the case in this serene and lovely, port city of Georgia."
