This would be a good time to note what a strong job Ron does — both for the board and for the city. This stuff takes hours to compile and is VERY helpful to the work Ron and I do at Nashville Post. Ro

Please enjoy these sites if you have not already. This can act as a "library" of sorts for information.
















This ought to get us started. Feel free to add some resources we may all enjoy!

Seriously, BR86, a fine list.

The online magazine Salon has started a new series on cities called "Dream City: How Should We Design the Cities of our Dreams?"

The first article basically sets the stage, outlining the shift in attitudes and reinvestment in cities, making a case that many of the big changes and big projects have been spearheaded by local citizens, rather than by governments and planners. The big problem, as outlined in the article, will be how to ensure that cities are affordable and not exclusive enclaves for the wealthy.

Anyway, it should be interesting to check in from time to time and see where this goes. I guess this could go in the resources page as well.

So I've been working on developing the Wikipedia pages for Nashville buildings and landmarks for some time, with the end goal of getting detailed articles for every building listed on this page: http://en.wikipedia....gs_in_Nashville

You'll note that a lot of the buildings do have pages, but most of them are just stub articles that don't have a lot of information about the building itself, and almost all are lacking images. Since I'm not actually in Nashville at the moment, that makes it kind of hard to go around taking good photos of the existing buildings, so I really need help in that area.

Anyway, just wanted to get the discussion started. If you're already registered as a Wikipedia editor, perhaps we can get enough interest to start a sub-project of Wikiproject Tennessee http://en.wikipedia.....26_task_forces

Also, if you want to hit me up on my Talk page, that's right here: http://en.wikipedia....er_talk:Nfutvol

Awesome, thanks guys. I'll definitely be making use of that info, Timmay.

With the licensing structure of Wikipedia, it's simplest if the person that takes the picture uploads it. If anyone wants to do an upload, but is unsure of how or the best way to integrate it into the article, just let me know and I'll be glad to lend a hand.

Okay, so here's a rough wish list...

Needs improved photos (Existing photos inadequate):

Fifth Third Center - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_Third_Center_(Nashville)

L&C Tower - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_%26_Casualty_Tower

Nashville City Center - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nashville_City_Center

Needs photos (No photos uploaded):

Renaissance Hotel - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renaissance_Nashville_Hotel

Regions Center - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regions_Center_(Nashville)

Sheraton Nashville Downtown - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheraton_Nashville_Downtown

SunTrust Building - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SunTrust_Building_(Nashville)

Bank of America Plaza - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bank_of_America_Plaza_(Nashville)

Palmer Plaza - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palmer_Plaza

Needs article expansion:

Fifth Third Center - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_Third_Center_(Nashville)

Renaissance Hotel - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renaissance_Nashville_Hotel

Polk State Office Building - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_K._Polk_State_Office_Building

Viridian Tower - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viridian_Tower

Sheraton Nashville Downtown - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheraton_Nashville_Downtown

SunTrust Building - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SunTrust_Building_(Nashville)

      I have always wanted to ask this queston in regards to nashville’s current rapid growth and future projected growth (the nashville msa is supposed to have around 4 million people by 2040).  Will the surrounding topography of nashville hurt or constraint nashville’s ability to grow as in building new developments, building new skyscrapers, mass transit, housing etc... While nashville isnt as constrained as cities such as pittsburgh (its so hilly there it’s ridiculous lol), i feel that 440 and fort negley to the south severely restrict nashville’s ability to grow in that direction, with north and east directions being partially constricted by the cumberland river (though not as much). The only direction that growth isnt constricted by anything is west towards midtown. I guess what i am getting at is it seems like topographically we are at a disadvantage to other cities that are growing such as austin and charlotte, and i wonder if that will harm us in the long run. But if i am wrong with this analysis than feel free to let me know. What do you all think about this topic?

      A couple of months ago several of us contributed to a conversation on the increase of urban crime. It was in another thread and , if memory serves, the mods were getting troubled so we ended the conversation.  I came across two articles this week (and included two others) on the subject and I am posting them in the hopes of discussing the topic in a civil manner.

      I assert the rising crime rate in US and many international cities is due to progressive policies - decriminalizing low-level crime and banning preventative policing tactics. I believe urban crime is well on the way to the high-water mark of 1990 (in most statistical areas).

      The City Journal article discusses the dramatic crime reduction of the 1990s in NYC

      ANNOUNCEMENT: Google Earth has updated its 3D renderings of Nashville satellite imagery.
      I'm not sure if I'm the only one who spends too much time on Google Earth, but I wanted to make everyone aware. Last update was maybe 2 years ago?

      SoBro, the Gulch, Music Row, Vandy/Midtown just few with a noticeable impact from the update.
      Mods: Is this an appropriate place for this? I'm sorry if not.

      Hello all fellow Nashvillians,
      As you can tell I am new here to the forum, so I apologize for any mistakes I may make. I currently do not live in Nashville, I actually am studying abroad through my university in London, however I lived and grew up in Nashville from 2000 to 2016 (moved to Nashville from New York when I was two years old lol), so It is very exciting for me to follow and catch up on urban development and economic growth in my previous hometown. 
      Introduction aside recently a group of evangelical christians decided to use (in my opinion defame) Nashville's name in an anti-lgbt statement, and many people across America (including Mayor  Megan Barry) have taken time to publicly denounce the statement and its values. Without getting too much into politics, I ask the question whether this statement, even with its lack of direct association to the city of Nashville, will have a negative effects on the city's image and reputation. I understand Nashville itself doesnt support it and has no association, but unfortunately in this day and age not many people read into details and may erroneously interpret this statement as being from Nashville leaders themselves. In fact a close friend of mine on facebook thought the exact same thing as I just said and posted negative things about Nashville itself.  tldr: Do you guys this nashville statement have a negative effect on our city's image or not?

      Not sure if there was a topic here involving Wikipedia already but I have been editing Grand Rapids topics heavily lately.
      There are a few things that I would like to ask you guys if you have any knowledge:
      1. Where was the old Plainfield Bridge?
      2. Does anyone have sources for the history of Grand Rapids' tallest buildings?
      3. Where are some good places that I can take updated photos?
      Anything would help and if you guys have any other recommendations as well, just let me know.
