Everyone knows that Atlanta and LA are similar, just on a different scale...

Great pics. It will be amazing to compare some of these pics to pics of the city in like 10 years.

I'm sorry still I have to disagree, just like some folks from Atlanta said its like NY, and we all know thats not true. Between the two cities, yes I would say its closer to being like LA. Yet really the only thing both have in common is their metro sprawls pretty far out, but thats any big american city today. A big difference is Atlanta is mostly low density sprawl, and LA is dense both in the city and even its surburbs (many have higher density than the city of Atlanta). We don't have homes with lots as big as what I've seen in Atlanta. There are more mutil-family units here in LA, and other than a few areas 95% of the city have sidewalks in its residental neighborhoods. Again I found it closer to Dallas and how its built. These two cities felt more alike, it was my first thoughts about Atlanta, similar to Dallas.

Anyway we are all entitled to our opinions, and I respect that. Hope you all have a good day.

Awesome photos of a cool city. Atlanta has the most unique skyscrapers around, and I LOVE all the spires.

if/when the masquerade goes under for damned dirty condos it'll be a dirty, sad day...unless it reopens in another unique spot.

i'm an atlanta resident who just found this thread!

i noticed when reading through it that there were many comments - almost complaints - about how it looks like skyscrapers sticking up out of the forest...like they are dissapointed you can't see the whole city thats unfolding underneath the trees...i don't find that dissapointing, i find it wonderful, as someone who lives in the historic part of midtown thats under those trees! in fact, the incredible tree canopy covering everything is one of the best parts of atlanta...it may not make an interesting and beautiful aerial photograph, but it makes for some really beautiful and interesting neighborhoods when you're walking around in them..which is, of course, how'd you'd experience them. (not up in the air.)

its lovely, though, to see my city like that!

Wow, i'm used to seeing the Westin looking silver and reflective. Being able to see right through the windows to the curtains makes it look like the building was recently hit by a tornado or something. lol

Or maybe they should use jet-black curtains? That way it would look more seamless from any angle.

I love that pic of Georgia Tech's football field. That is such a cool looking stadium. My sister is an Agnes Scott grad so she made me a Jacket fan. Would love to catch a night game there to see the midtown views.

Great pics...With all the contruction going on...in 2008 & 2009, those pics will look so much different. Wow! LA and Atlanta are similiar to me. Not that I'd want LA to remind me of Atlanta. They just do.
