Fairlie Poplar gets the Bronx treatment for filming
Another cool photo of this week’s film shoot for Anchorman 2 near Woodruff Park. Two sides of Moe’s (seen here from Poplar and Broad Streets) are given a gritty 80s-NYC look. At least I assume that’s what they’re going for.
This building, by the way, is part of a wonderful block of that runs between Broad Street and Peachtree Street featuring some of the last remaining 19th century, commercial row buildings left in the city.
You can see them on the far left of this photo from the early 1900s. They’ve seen some history.
My wife, my son and I have moved into Atlanta’s historic Fairlie-Poplar neighborhood, as mentioned before. We’re officially residents of Downtown Atlanta and, even though we’re still getting over post-move craziness, we’re already enjoying the new place a lot. The view from our building is awesome (photos to come soon).
My son enjoys running and riding his scooter along the sidewalks of downtown as much as I hoped he would. And I’m getting some much needed exercise because of it.
I still have to drive to work because of the MARTA-challenged location of my office (in an awkward, unincorporated Dekalb County office park with no sidewalks), but the nights and weekends are proving to be gloriously car free. My lucky wife gets to take MARTA to work, so our combined vehicle miles traveled are lower anyway, so that’s cool.
I really feel at home here and we’re meeting lots of nice neighbors. It’s a cool neighborhood and a great fit. If you see an exhausted dude chasing a little boy on a scooter downtown, say hi.
