  1. Sad. I hope Charlotte radically changes it's anti-gay image and culture. The rest of the western world and peer cities are making monumental strides on this issue, yet a simple LGBR ordinance can't get passed there in 2015. Charlotte must do better.

  6. Meanwhile, they used a very flattering picture. The author must be from NYC or some other very large city. We have a large skyline for how big our city really is. It's so annoying when people can't interpret the population stats.

  7. I'm sorry but I have to disagree. Thunder Road isn't bringing in visitors to the park. While I agree that from a nostalgic point of view it's sad to see the old wooden coasters leaving, they "generally" don't bring the paying customers (unless they're REALLY famous). My family has been here 7 years and had season passes for 5 years. I've ridden Thunder Road once and my wife has never ridden it. It's out of the way but it's not a destination. Sorry.

  8. It's going bye bye... Look at social media... To that I say BOOOOOO. How in the world could they tear that down?!?! It's thunder Road. THE roller coaster of Carowinds. It's iconic and it's big... It's a main attraction. I guess our tradition of knocking down old stuff isnt limited to uptown

  9. ^If we had Boston's density in 504 sq miles, we'd have almost 6.3 million people. The need for mass transit under such circumstances would be self-evident. Given that we're 1/10th as dense and 9 times as large in area, it's a much harder sell, and difficult to justify to the taxpayers ("Joe and Jane Nashville"). I'd love to see trolley cars plying the streets again, but unless you can figure out a way to pay for it and have it be viable (cost/maintenance, ridership, not causing harm to existing traffic, et al), it will remain merely a wish.

  10. ^^ I would love to see Southpark's skyline get taller. Nothing too crazy. I think a few 25 to 30 story towers would look awesome.

  12. ^^I am less optimistic about simple street frontage retail being able to make it...especially at this site. I kind of think that a variant on "Ricky's" site plan that might work would be an epi-center type inner block development that orients itself to the stadium somehow. I am hopefull that our uptown streets will be stroll worthy soon, but in the meantime, I think that the epicenter model is a safe route for whole block mega projects.

  14. world class art coming to downtown Greensboro. Boston aerial sculpture offers glimpse of what's coming to downtown Greensboro's future LeBauer City Park across from the future performing arts center. The park is already under construction. Greensboro will become the second city on the east coast after Boston to have an aerial sculpture like this. Boston's will only be temporary but Greensboro's will be permanent. Janet Echelman has created similar sculptures in Denver, Phoenix, Sydney, San Francisco and Vancouver. In Greensboro the sculpture will hang over the grassy area in the performan
