Atlanta is a lot of things, among that being New South. I noticed lots of non-Southern accents (?), but a lot of visually beautiful things from the past century as well as the 21st century. Buckhead, obviously, has money and is a world away from downtown, from the King Center or Carter Center. But it is something to thing about, unlike Balston in DC which seems contrived.
