Healey Building photo love
Wendy Darling (@wcdarling), a fellow resident of the Healey Building, tweeted a link today to an amazing Pinterest photo site she’s made in anticipation of the 100-year anniversary of the buidling next year. Check it out.
The 16-story Healey Building (aka ‘my home’) was built in downtown Atlanta between 1913-14 and served as an office building for several decades. In 2001 the upper floors were converted to condos, leaving the lower two as office and retail. If you’ve ever eaten at Rosa’s Pizza on Broad Street, that’s the ground floor portion of the Healey.
The two questions I get asked most often about living in the Healey:
Where do you park your car?
My family shares a car and parks it a few blocks away in a deck while we look forward to the day when Atlanta is ped/bike friendly enough that we can ditch the car. Walking out the front door to see a nice sidewalk with so much in walking distance (restaurants, library, two train stations) — instead of a parking lot or driveway — is my idea of awesome.
How do you do groceries?
We make small trips to the store all week long so that we don’t have too much to carry in at once. I do not miss the comprehensive eight-bag grocery jaunts of yesteryear. Not one jot.
