  1. I'll tell you what really amazes me. Back before the MCC/OMNI and the KVB extension, I used to park in SoBro (before it was called that) for hockey games. When the game let out, they would turn all of the traffic lights to flashing yellows. I guess the theory was that traffic could exit the area faster without all those pesky traffic lights. Nevermind the 20k pedestrians who had to play real life "Frogger" to walk down the street. I can't tell you how many times I was almost hit by a car trying to race out of town. I think they finally wised up on that as I haven't seen it in a while. Then

  2. Here is an odd bit I found tonight... It's a 'lost' Beastie Boys video (featuring Nas) on a song called "Too Many Rappers". What is odd about it is that the video is shot in Nashville. I am unaware of any connection the Beastie Boys, Nas, or Roman Coppola (the director) have with Nashville. There aren't any skyline shots, or anything to give the average person a clue to what city it is in (unless they are familiar with the Parthenon). They shoot at several random locations, including the back of the (former) Arby's next to Palmer Plaza, 12th and Edgehill (where the polar bear snow

  3. So there is ~5115 feet from the edge of New Bern Station to the edge of East-West Station. So the halfway point would be at the southern edge of the new Southline building. So considering pedestrian paths west are blocked by the fenced in Junction, it is then a the only practical choice to shift it north where you have shown it (or with the northern edge of the potential station at the northern edge of the Southline residential building. Where you have shown it would be ~2000' from the E-W station and ~3000' from New Bern. For comparison purposes: E-W to Bland = 1500' Bland to

  6. Bridges can be upwards of $2 million depending on the design and whether or not it needs elevators to meet ADA requirements. I prefer the common sense approach. The most logical and cost-effective solution would be for CATS to allow an at-grade pedestrian crossing in an urban section of the tracks on the longest super-block in South End.

  7. I think once this begins to go vertical, it will put some definite pressure on NES to find a less expensive place to store their bucket trucks and massive reels of cable. Exciting to think of that corridor being filled with pedestrians and retail! Regarding the "Gulch" designation--remember the train tracks swing through the Capitol View area just the same as they do in the heart of The Gulch. I think that brings some continuity to the neighborhood and makes it reasonable to think that the entire thing could be unified under that name. It would likely be just as successful going by the Cap

  9. Thank you for the kind words. My wife works off Mallory Lane, but I work in Mt. Juliet so I didn't really save any time or travel. She wouldn't stop wrecking cars, so we decided to move. We really liked Hendersonville, but it was just too much stress everyday. (Luckily I can still get cheap gas in MJ) Really enjoy everyone's hard work on this forum. We don't have family around here and its nice to at least feel somewhat connected to like-minded people.

  13. Even though the NTHP is a privately-funded non-profit, the fact is, it frequently can muster and consolidate support and funding for maximizing the chances of preserving some of these notable treasures. They (it) work toward saving all kinds of odd-ball, off-the-wall items of any size (or almost any). They recently completed a fund-raising initiative to save what remains of the Cincinnati Union Terminal, a 1933 humongous Art-Deco passenger-train station which, although shared as large version of Nashv'l's Adventure Science Center (family museum), an iMax theatre, and an Amtrak station, ha

  18. I've done work for a family of 3 that lives there. Kid is high school age. Not sure why they live there, but I did work for a family of similar demographics in South Park area apartments who were completely renovating their home in Eastover so living in their apartment for a year while the work was being done. Could be a similar reason. I didn't ask. Really didn't think of it at the time.

  23. No, you have to re-bid after a certain time. Generally, prices only hold for one month. Their timeline seems too long but the bigger issue is probably raising money. I doubt they need a year to complete the drawings.

  26. I think it's a wonderful thing what the banks have done. Bank of America has given a lot of money to the Charlotte community. There are smart people in this city. Hopefully over the next fewyears they can come up with a plan. Even if that means the museum leaves uptown. I'd rather have a WWII or a satellite Smithsonian museum. At least you could draw Middle school field trips to boost revenue.

George Jones Museum takes shape with details, opening date http://www.bizjournals.com/nashville/blog/2015/01/george-jones-museum-takes-shape-with-details.html This will make a nice addition to the downtown collection of Museums.

The museum has partnered with Kentucky-based Silver Trail Distillery to produce White Lightnin' Moonshine, an homage to one of Jones' first chart-toppers."

This is outside of what is traditionally considered to be the "12th South" district, close to Wedgewood. The Special Olympics has up to a year to remain at the location. I'm very interested to see how much the intersection of 12th and Wedgewood will change over the coming years.
