Heavy weight of history

s8I rode the Atlanta Streetcar route on bike, then onboard. I usually do it the other way around, but it’s that time of year when heat shows up like an unwanted guest and doesn’t leave ’til October and the air conditioning onboard feels good after the bike. There are hints that new things are coming (boutique living for students! bike share!) but I feel the heavy weight of history, especially on “Sweet Auburn Avenue” as the potential for a revival true to its roots seems increasingly improbable. (If interested, see A Streetcar Named Aspire for photos to date.)
