From New York’s High Line to Atlanta’s Beltline

Much of the historic city of Atlanta was greatly destroyed by fire during the American Civil War, but shortly after the war Atlanta surpassed Savannah in population and became the capital of Georgia. The city continued to grow rapidly during the 20th century, eventually succumbing to great stretches of car-dependent urban and suburban sprawl, common to many urban centers in the United States. A new attempt to knit the city back together can be found with the Beltline.
