  1. Over time, let us know what you miss most about Boston and what you're loving about Nashville. Gives us a perspective of what we're doing wrong / right from someone from the "outside." Been to the NE many times...but Boston is the one big city I haven't been to yet.
  2. I'm sorry...but Dickel Sandwich sounds like the end of a horrible pick-up line.
  3. I love the yin / yang of Smeagols and Mark.
  4. Soccer in Nashville

    I'm still trying to understand what the fuss is about from these people. They're keeping everything at the fairgrounds that is already there, and improving it...plus adding almost-world-class soccer. Some people would complain if you handed them $100 with no strings attached.
  5. Nashville Bits and Pieces

    As much as we all love seeing Nashville grow...and some eyesores being replaced with 21st Century architecture...there is something to be said for neighborhoods changing so much and prices skyrocketing, forcing Nashville residents to the suburbs. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2018/03/18/opinion/nashville-demolition-blues.html?smid=fb-share&referer=http://m.facebook.com My old neighborhood isn’t recognizable anymore, and neither is this city, my home for more than 30 years. There are reasons to celebrate growth, and I don’t want to be like the cranky old neighbor who complained that we were driving up his property taxes without acknowledging that we were also increasing his property’s value. I know it’s nothing less than a luxury to live here. Most people would love to live in a place where the biggest problem is that the old trees keep dying, their roots covered in concrete and cinder block. But something crucial is lost when a community becomes a place where people can’t afford to live in the same county where they work. Something important is lost when a neighborhood becomes a place where only the well off live — where a single parent will never again buy a house, where a schoolteacher will never again buy a house, where there’s no little rental house for a lonely widow to move into, right across the street from her daughter.
  6. Has Nashville gone up in city tiers?

    There are several different ways you can come up with "tiers". First would be the metro populations...which is not subjective. You just look at the census figures and there you have it. You can do tiers based on tourism. # of sports teams. # of tech workers. Etc, Etc, Etc.
  7. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    Like the Tennessee Theater (or whatever it was called).
  8. Soccer in Nashville

    Honestly...I wish Ingram would have just found some land to purchase so that the city wouldn't have so much control over this.
  9. Soccer in Nashville

    Wow. Seems like a big cluster.
  10. CBD/SoBro/RutledgeHill/Rolling Mill Hill Projects

    ^^Yeah...I have no issues with adding a floor like that as long as they do a "setback" like it appears they have. Doesn't take away from the historic beauty of the original.
  11. Has Nashville gone up in city tiers?

    Worth finding out. I'm thinking we're 2nd tier, but I could be wrong. Gonna have to do some research.
  12. Soccer in Nashville

    What's the capacity of the lower bowl?
  13. Has Nashville gone up in city tiers?

    As far as metro size, we're up close to cities like Austin, Cincy, KC, Indianapolis, etc now. Tourist-wise...I'd say we're nearly in the top group. We may not be on the level of NYC, Vegas, Orlando...but we're close in a lot of aspects.
  14. I think it's mostly privately owned land.
