The BeltLine Will Be Atlanta’s Highline

The busy, traffic-filled city of Atlanta might be getting a little reprieve in the form of the BeltLine. Somewhat akin to NYC’s Highline, the plan is to convert about 22 miles of unused railway beds “circling the city’s urban core into a biking and pedestrian loop, a new streetcar line, and a staggeringly ambitious engine of urban revitalization.” Not only will the proposed trail result in less congestion in the city (ideally), it will also offering a refreshing place for city-dwellers to take a break from it all.
