    Okay I should have specified *commuter.* Freight rail doesn't help me travel unless I'm a rail-jumping vagabond.

    More Accolades for Nashville

    I don't mind the Bachelorette parties, the CMA fest hooligans, the Titans or Predators fanatics, etc. It keeps the city vibrant. We are a destination... I hope it continues.

    Ideas for Nashville

    Agreed. My dad visited downtown for the first time in years and I RANDOMLY ran into him on 2nd Ave. His first comment after "Hey!" was "Man it stinks down here!" You can't walk down any street without encountering a puddle of stale beer or garbage ooze. Even the brand new 21C Hotel sits their four leaking trashcans right on the sidewalk. It's just gross.

    The Transportation and Mass Transit Megathread

    I love that India has an extensive train system, that is truly the #1 mode of transport for all Indians. Of course, this came from being occupied by the British for many decades, but there it is. It's interesting to think that if we, "the Colonies," had been occupied by the British until about 1930, we would have a cross-country, well-developed, extensive train transport system. Alternatively, we developed with cars as our #1 transport, especially after the rise of Ford, and the advent of the wartime Eisenhower interstate system.
  8. This building is actually pretty impressive in person. It stands out in the area like a sore thumb, but serves as a sign of what is (hopefully) to come for the area. It is sleek and dominant. I like it. I consider it neo-brutalist.

    AMEN! Which is why, when you vote for state legislature, make sure to vote for individuals who aren't harsh towards Nashville.

    Margaritaville Hotel,12 stories, 145 ft., 215 rooms

    I.... I can't..... I mean..... "As nice as the Westin...."
  11. I loved the apartment tower, but this is yet another different look. At least it is staying tall (for Nashville.) It's the office tower that keeps getting shorter and shorter....

    Hopefully it will be completely obscured in a few years. One can dream. I want Bridgestone-sized towers all the way through SoBro to the interstate.

    This needs a great big limestone tower right in the middle! How do we get a Robert A.M. Stern building in Nashville??
