It’s not every day that you see streets in Atlanta not filled with the ever present automobile. Unless you live in a neighborhood like Midtown Atlanta, it’s pretty hard NOT to have a car and get around.
But, we are making strides in getting the urban core of Atlanta to be more transit-oriented, as well as even more walkable. So, what better way to get you into the streets, than to CLOSE THE STREET TO AUTOMOBILE TRAFFIC!
Atlanta Streets Alive Comes to Midtown
Sunday, May 18, 2014 2-6pm
This Sunday, May 18, 2014 from 2-6pm, Peachtree Street will be closed from 17th Street to Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive in Downtown Atlanta. Yes, Peachtree Street will be free of cars and you can walk right down the middle to your hearts content!
Activities will be varied from zumba classes to fashion shows and more! Or you might find a choice spot in a sidewalk cafe and just watch the people while you enjoy lunch and your favorite beverage (I’m thinking you might find me at my fav…Gordon Biersch Midtown!)
For more information, here is the flyer from Midtown Alliance!
And here is the Map. Never fear, the yellow dots indicate where automobiles WILL be able to CROSS Peachtree Street, but not travel North and South!
