Today is the one year anniversary of The Suburban City. It’s hard to believe, it feels like it’s been longer and less than a year at the same time. So, what happened? Well, here’s a roundup of some of The Suburban City’s best stories from the past year:
As laid out in the introduction to The Suburban City, the point of this blog isn’t just to talk about Atlanta, but to put into context the complex issues that have and will continue to shape Atlanta: “It is an effort to better understand the state of Atlanta and other cities like it, their pros and cons, their challenges and accomplishments, and their pasts and bright futures… [To] examine the social, environmental, economic, and urban issues in Atlanta.” I like to think that mission was accomplished in this first year. In its second year, The Suburban City will delve deeper into the details. We’re going to get a little wonky, we’re going to get into the weeds, and we’re going to get a little personal.
Again, thanks for reading and thank you for all of the support. It’s amazing to have readers from over 60 countries around the world and makes all the effort absolutely worth it.
Ready for Year Two?
