  1. The new Bernard Avenue extension is open (sidewalk brick pavers still being added). It runs North-South to Compton Avenue. At the end of this street will be the entrance to the new Parking/Tennis garage.
  2. I recently moved here from Florida (I used to post on the Miami/Orlando/Jacksonville boards WAYYY back in the day). Thanks for the welcome...Nashville is great!
  3. Hello everyone, first time posting here in the Nashville boards...I'm a grad student at Belmont and saw this today: https://news.belmont.edu/belmont-announces-plans-for-new-parking-garage-tennis-courts/ This new garage will be located in between Compton and Delmar, just south of the new Performing Arts Center. It looks like it'll be connected to the Curb garage with the new road they're constructing in between Bernard and Compton.
  4. Amazing photos! Thanks for posting! I can only dream of being on the roof of a tower that tall.... I really must go to New York!
  5. Yeah, NW Florida is most different from the other areas of the state. Even geographically, there's hills and such up there.
  6. I think it's just easier to say "South" instead of "South-east." And I agree with poonther, that when Flagler started 'colonizing' the southern part of the state, it was mostly on the east coast, not the west coast. So we got named South Florida first.
  7. Tallahassee was the center of the state when it was built; there was nothing but swamps down south. ^There's rednecks and hillbillies everywhere. It just depends on where you look. Jacksonville has plenty of cosmopolitan people and West Palm Beach has plenty of rednecks. Just go to the South Florida Fair for proof lol.
  8. I've lived on both sides of the so-called "border." Jacksonville and West Palm Beach. I don't dislike either of those places, they both have their own redeeming qualities. I don't care what northerners think about those in the south and vice versa. Honestly, some of the back-and-forth in this thread makes it seem like civil war is imminent lol. And I don't think our capital should be moved to Orlando. Washington D.C. isn't exactly central to our country, is it? And Tallahassee has alot of great history, whereas Orlando doesn't have much to talk about "pre-Mouse." No offense Orlando, I love your city.
  9. I think that while it sounds like an interesting idea, it could have serious consequences. I like things the way they are, though I do agree that south Florida is quite a different region.
  10. A related article.... Is time right for regional transportation authority? http://www.jaxdailyrecord.com/showstory.php?Story_id=44451
  11. I love spoof articles. Here's a link to a funny blog site with all kinds of Jacksonville-based fake news: http://www.sonzaki.blogspot.com/ They haven't updated in a while, I hope it's still active....
  12. MrJoshua, I don't think I've had the chance to welcome you to UrbanPlanet yet. While Jacksonville isn't as dense as other cities with successful mass transit, I believe that it will be one day. I think it would be a good idea to have some commuter rail in place to help with the traffic growth.
  13. ^I agree, but what do we do? Does anyone know who there is to contact about our ideas. I mean, surely they had to have given some thought to the existing rail lines that run through the city, but maybe they didn't??

  15. My most recent favorite pic of the Flagler Museum in Palm Beach, FL.
