It has Georgia Tech still in it’s downtown/midtown section. It has a lot of original food places and lots of decent housing. Business equals money, and that makes Atlanta quite different from other parts of the South. It probably always has. It even contains a little piece of a city under a city in Underground fashion (two shots directly below). There is poverty too, the I-75 plein air homeless, but one likes to forget that in big cities.
