Five Ideas We're Rooting For

(Of which four actually exist)

The Atlanta Streetcar
Granted, the first streetcars to roll through Atlanta since 1949 will travel only a 2.6-mile route connecting one cluster of tourist attractions (the World of Coke and its Centennial Park neighbors) to another (the King historic district) via blighted stretches of Auburn and Edgewood avenues. But we’re still cheering for this first effort to reconnect sections of the city ripped apart by 1950s and 1960s highway construction and hoping that locals join tourists on the streetcar, slated to debut in the latter part of 2013.
