  1. You guys have been posting some great pictures lately. Suburban George, those are some great pictures of the botanical gardens. I haven't been there in a long time, so it was good to see some pics of the place.

    Nice job capturing the skyline, Hybrid! Not many places offer that kind of view. (That shot of 1180 Peachtree Street looks great, too!)

    Also, nice vid, Jersey Boy.

    All these pics are making me hope I get some more time in the city sometime soon...

  2. Some of us went into the Cold Stone Creamery in Centennial Place a few days ago. They were giving out free samples that day, and said they might try to open to the public the following day. Einstein Bros. Bagels is in the same small food court (which has more booth seating and a cozier feel than a mall food court), but all they had up were signs...no bagels yet. The print shop has machines in it already, we could see from the windows. Not sure when they're opening either. The one thing we found funny was a crosswalk in the road that led straight onto new sod, a good 15 feet or so from the sidewalk extension to the road. Would've made a nice "FAIL" pic.
  3. Right now, I'm opposed to consolidating Bulloch County and Statesboro. I like Statesboro the way it is right now. I also don't like the tax issue. I don't want to ruin the city's density either.

    If the city and county do consolidate, I do believe the result would be the second largest city in the continental US in area--Jacksonville, FL, is the largest at 767 sq miles of land alone since it merged with Duval County.

    EDIT: According to Wikipedia, we'd be the fourth largest in area in the continental US, behind Jacksonville, FL, and Anaconda and Butte, Montana. We'd be the eighth largest in the entire US behind the aforementioned cities and a few Alaskan cities (all of which rank ahead of Jacksonville and the others).

    Also, I'm pinning this topic. I hope it gets a good discussion going.

  4. Ok yall, I am going to try to revive this city forum by introducing some new threads to be a little more organized so we dont blabber on every topic for 25 pages. I know that there have not been much posting going on for the last year, but a lot has happened during that time, we have just been lazy. I am about to move to Atlanta, but want to remain updated on whats going on down here, so lets get active again - Im going to try to remain active too.
