  1. Most metropolitan regions that have more than one agency running public transit in the area work out deals or offer cards that are accepted across the board. I know San Francisco's MUNI and BART and Tokyo's Metro and JR lines offer this.
  2. I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer here but GA isn't getting any high speed rail anytime soon. Our do nothing state leaders who spend more time trying to "stick it" to Atlanta than helping the state's economic engine spend nothing on public transit and because of that, GA was only given $750,000 by the Obama administration for rail studies. Meanwhile, Florida and North Carolina are leaving us in the dust. That is to say that a Nashville/Atlanta HSR line is most likely not going to happen anytime soon but the bright side is that TN doesn't have to feel so left out now with bullet train devel
  3. Hey cityboi are you watching the history channel? They're running a UFO special right now.
  4. I've been looking into a lot of Area 51 stuff recently and so I decided to post some of my favorite videos and websites. First: here is Area 51 on Google Maps so yes, it does exist. It's right there next to the Nellis bombing range on the Groom Lake dry lakebed in Nevada, about 100 miles NNW of Las Vegas. How much these images are censored and airbrushed by the government is unknown. Rest assured, they are airbrushed to an extent though.

  5. Fat chance. But if he DOES, that would mean then tomorrow he'll be announcing it! And people from coast to coast will be throwing up their Thanksgiving meal from the shock. P.S. Thanks for keeping this thread alive Cityboi! It's one of my favorites. Have you listened to the Bob Lazar/Art Bell interview on youtube yet? It's very, very interesting.

  6. I'm still skeptical about seeing this thing anytime soon. The economy is showing signs of relief but we're still a long way off from getting things like this off the drawing board depite falling construction costs. I'm kind of in the "I'll believe it when I see it" mindset right now. However I will be extactic if this thing does get pulled off. It's way past-due for Nashville to blow the top off the 750' mark.
  7. Oh man! What are they gonna do about all of that? Is this project still on the boards or has Palmer officially pulled the plug on it? Either way, he'll need to pull the plug on that oversized bathtub to drain the water (that doesn't look too far away from flooding the streets). Lol that sign has been up so long that it's black and white from sun-fading.
  8. Yeah my online storage client totally just deleted everything I had uploaded to it which included these pictures. Uagh! Here they are from photobucket: Atlanta & Buckhead here Atlanta & Buckhead (night) here Atlanta, Buckhead, & Dunwoody with lables here Atlanta, Buckhead, & Dunwoody without lables here
  9. Ok guys. I've been living in Atlanta for a few months now and figured I'd finally contribute some pics to the board. I used to take pics of Nashville and post them in the Nashville boards when I still lived there but until recently, I had been slammed with work here so I couldnt contribute much. Sorry! Anyway I have been casually scouting for good spots here and there and found a wonderful vantage point from the Vinings area on Cumberland Blvd that as far as I know, is the only area where you can capture Dunwoody, Buckhead, and midtown/downtown all in one panorama . Because of the extreme si
  10. Does anyone else find it odd that the website is still up and running? Doesn't look like it's been updated though. Signature Tower Website
  11. I don't blame you for not wanting to read through 145 pages of people saying "It will break ground on xx/xx/xxxx!" to no result. Basically the story was that Giarratanna didn't get enough pre-sales back before the housing bubble burst and so the banks didn't give him a loan to start construction. Last I heard, he was redesigning the tower and working on luring some corporate interests into leasing a bunch of office space in it. Even with that, I doubt any bank is going to give out a monstrous loan to start construction on this thing until the economy is thriving again. It's basically dead f
  12. Crime shime... It's not like Murfreesboro Rd is exactly Nashville's little Garden of Eden. I recall hearing that Greyhound had another location in mind in case Murfreesboro Rd didn't work out but they didn't disclose where.
  13. Whoops! I meant to say 7billion, not 700B. Multitasking (which I was doing at the time) doesn't agree with me too well lol. I don't know where I got 700B from. Thanks for clairifying though.
  14. I have to wonder what the chances are that Giarratana could actually get MTC built in this day and age. Davidson county does need some sort of area for campus style offices but wernt the projected costs like in the $700 billion ballpark range? Let's be realistic here. Maybe scale it back a bit. Construction costs have come down I believe so that would help. Maybe just re-zoning the area to commercial use and letting relocating companies help with construction costs? Does Giarratana really need to build a $5-700,000,000,000 second downtown?
