New York Times > “business has increased tenfold.”

(press.)  Project update from the New York Times. Link: “Now Atlanta Is Turning Old Tracks Green.”

Excerpt: “Skip Engelbrecht owns an antique furniture store, Paris on Ponce, that backs up to the Eastside Trail. He said business has increased tenfold over the past two years as the trail opened. “It’s unreal. We used to worry about homeless people back there and now it’s like a boardwalk,” Mr. Engelbrecht. “We’re planning a new entrance in the back, maybe a coffee shop someday. It’s hard to imagine this was all an old railroad.”
