I see articles here and there about Orlando from the perspective of outsiders. I looked for a topic that might fit the postings, but to no avail.  Feel free to move them around if they fit a topic elsewhere.

 

This one is from the Japan Times.

I like this idea. It's seems like the City and downtown Facebook pages are always sharing articles about Orlando

Saw this article from a popular travel blog.  Joseph Hayes (food writer for Orlando Magazine) made a comment about such articles that I liked. "Some day we might actually be able to own our fantastic side without someone saying, 'Yeah, Orlando is garbage, but ...' Never apologize for greatness!"  It makes me wonder when it will be common knowledge that Orlando is in fact wonderful, and all the attempts to convince people will be a bygone thought.

From the New York Times.  Essentially the article examines how Harris Rosen's program in Tangelo Park changed the neighborhood through direct financial investment. Rosen funnelled money towards education, funding free daycares, and providing scholarships for graduating seniors attending state schools.  His legacy changed Tangelo Park and will now be tested in Parramore.
