BeltLine Receives International Award

Last week, the Atlanta BeltLine was awarded the Prix d ‘Excellence Award by the International Real Estate Federation for best environmental rehabilitation project in the world. The award highlighted the organization's work on the Historic Fourth Ward Park, which was once a barren, contaminated site, but today is a vibrant part of the community that craftily incorporates flood protection and stormwater overflow solutions; the 2.25-mile Eastside Trail, a former abandoned heavy freight rail corridor that is now a ribbon of parkland and trails; and the city's first public skatepark and nearby athletic fields, a hot gathering spot for skaters, athletes and families.  Congratulations to Atlanta’s BeltLine!

Record Store Day

Record Store Day

Record Store Day, started by Atlantan and owner of Little Five Points' Criminal Records Eric Levin, has become a tidal force in the music industry. Nearly every label, large and small, plans limited releases for the annual occasion to entice collectors of all stripes to venture out across the country and take their music gathering off line. Perhaps the economy has turned around – Criminal Records broke records (pardon the pun) with their biggest sale day in over 20 years at this year's RSD April 19. Shoppers waited patiently in line, in the rain, starting at 2:30 a.m. in anticipation of the more than 450 music releases created specifically for independent music stores for the special day. Both Criminal and neighboring Wax n' Facts had live music throughout...
