20 thoughts about living in Atlanta without a car
This is awesome. The Oppidan Omnibus has made a list of 20 things that apply to someone who lives in car-crazy Atlanta without a car.
A few of my favorites from the list:
- You buy a lot of your stuff at grieviously unfashionable places because the low-profile boutiques and out-of-the-way markets are too much work to get to.
- About once a week you reflexively pull out your Breeze card instead of your debit card to pay for something.
- You don’t know what the big deal is about the parking at Atlantic Station.
- You can walk up the escalators at Peachtree Center faster than people half your age or 30 pounds lighter than you.
My wife, pictured above with my kid, is a car-free Urban Warrior Princess of the coolest variety. I’ve heard or seen her experience many of these things. Do yourself a favor and take a second to read the full list.
