Charlotte Photo of the Day

Disagree I like it that is so different and the gold windows make it unique.  Not sure what the view is from the inside only went  up into the tower once.  

I seem to be the only one here who loathes Charlotte's 70s buildings.  I hate the ones in Atlanta too.   Every time I visit Atlanta, I think that I’d love to see these towers get new facades.  Fortunately (or unfortunately depending upon one’s perspective),  Charlotte has less of these ugly towers than Atl does.

It’s a nice photo.  I didn’t credit Charlottestories.com because I know that no one on this board likes them.  I just credited the name on the article.  I don’t know who took the photo.

I'm just trying to convince you to stop supporting a plagiarism factory with fake writers. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/newsbuzzr-scammer-news-plagiarism-website-traffic_n_5d584e8be4b056fafd0cd0dc?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&fbclid=IwAR31SggU7YiwA-MKi4kp5HvcRBWTRDE_10cGoDXZToRlkv78hMyS6W-uwEE

I challenge you to find Adrianna Robinson, Kelly Marksbury, Luciano Hendrix existing in the real world. None have any social media presence, and you'd be hard pressed to find one journalist/writer, let alone 3 without any social media presence or maybe a linkedin. Writers, especially the ones that'd show up on Charlotte Stories, would  have to self promote. Hell if you look up Luciano Hendrix on facebook, he hasn't posted since 2017, and it was a "selfie" of an entirely different person. If you look at his fiends list, all bots.

It showed up on my FB feed, and I thought it was a nice photo.   I don’t support them.

Also, I consider that a dull view. Green rills in the distance, trees as a carpet for our forested city, yes. This view, no.

I love the view of crepe myrtles in my yard in Chapel Hill, but I’d prefer that view, which looks pretty nice to me.

@ricky_davis_fan_21 Clts reddit has an auto  generated message anytime someone posts a link from Charlotte stories warning about their nefariousness. They're absolute crap. Worst than a tabloid because they operate under the guise of being legit.

they even run a "news site" about Nashville, and surprise, same writers. One of these days I'm going to write an exposé

I try to educate people on Facebook when I see articles shared from CLT stories but the average person just sees an article that looks normal if they didn't know any better. They're pretty widespread on FB as far as people sharing their articles. I don't really see them much anywhere else.

For whatever reason, their stories always show up on my FB feed.

Their target demo is the facebook crowd, and the way facebook prioritizes data, its a breeding ground for continues success for them.

I'm curious, there's a page called "Charlotte NC" I follow on Facebook, and it seems that they and Charlotte Stories posts at the same time, Charlotte NC always has more comments and likes. I'm curious, are they affiliated, or does Charlotte Stories steal from them?

The FB page is a front for the "newspaper." This is the about section of the Charlotte, NC FB group I think you were referencing.

They even added the NC after Charlotte. It's like they want to anger UPers lol!

as I had a meeting uptown this morning before I went coastal I took a few photos since the place where I am going has no overhead electrical lines (except for the major towers bringing the power onto the island)   This morning and one unauthorized photo that jumped in the upload. 

From N Brevard along the LYNX line and 4th photo is from the columns at the Levine garage.
