Interior : Atlanta Fox Theatre

Interior (Post#12) : Atlanta Fox Theatre

Atlanta Fox Theatre is already part of history and its significance is being recognize not only in the city but in the whole country. The theatre has been planned for demolition before and due to circumstances it has been saved. Right now the 1920’s former movie palace is now self-sustaining as it generates income that can maintain its structure. The building design both exterior and interior shows its Moorish style. When I entered the theatre from entrance to balcony it significantly show the Middle Eastern and Egyptian style from it doors, windows, ceilings, walls and flooring. Even the lighting used and decorations significantly show its Arabic concept. And when I learned that it was originally planned and designed as new headquarters of Shriners in Atlanta (a national fraternal organization that is a subgroup of the Masons, is the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic), I understand why the theatre has the Moorish concept. But because of the cost it needed, the member of Shriners lease the building to movie tycoon William Fox and had a deal about having its 5000 seats.  These photos are part of Shaping Sound event at Atlanta Fox Theatre Photo Collection November 2015.

Six (6) Atlanta City Walks

When the weather in Atlanta becomes better, I took my chance to walk in some part of the city during my last weekend and last Friday in the metropolis. I grouped my walk in six major places as listed below. The order of these places that I saw in my leisure walk  around the city are not necessarily based on how I presented it here, but I used north (Midtown) to south (Downtown) direction to tell the story of the places that I had seen in the city.

1. Peachtree St NE (Midtown)

This is the part of the walk where the following places can be found : Margaret Mitchell House, Fabulous Fox and Georgian Terrace.

Strolling at Underground Atlanta (The City Beneath the City – Atlanta Walk Part 6)

When I reached Woodruff Park and as I walked along Peachtree St NW, I found another place that caught my interest to have a leisure walk and that was Underground. I first heard Underground place from my colleague at work based in Atlanta. And he recommended me to go there and have some time to look around. When I saw its name from a distance, I felt excited then I walked towards it. Next thing that I saw was the Peachtree Fountain Plaza and the 138-feet tower where the New Year’s Eve Peach Drop happens every year, the 138 feet of the tower symbolizes the 138 miles of the railroad run from Downtown Atlanta to Chattanooga Tennessee, an interesting facts that I learned somewhere. At Peachtree Fountain Plaza is where usually people of Atlanta celebrates the switching of year from old to new.

I walked towards Lower Alabama Street and I walked inside Underground. First thing that I saw were kiosks of small retail stores lined along the street. Its kind of discovering a part of Atlanta.

IMG_6003_s

Then, I saw an area where you can take photos of yourself. I was not able to take mine because I was not really good in taking selfie pictures. But it looks like it is a photo booth where you will pay for photos but if it closed at night, I guess you can take photos for free and if you have friends with you can even have a groupie photos.

While wandering inside the Underground, I found some information boards where it tells a historical piece of facts that is worth to know. One of the things that I found were about Architectural Cast Iron which used in buildings after Civil War, then it followed by Gate City Bank in 1885, where there were still remnants of stonework of original buildings that still visible at the time of my visit, the Block Building of 1882, the Pryor Street Railroad Crossing, the Humbug Square and Packing House Row.

Wandering along the streets of Underground I reached the other end of it which is at Central Avenue SW. Here I found some small exhibits and pieces of information about Underground with a matching of train station platform. It also explained why the Underground exist at all which kind of a solution that people thought at earlier years to resolve the problem between automobiles and trains in busy and crowded roadways through building a viaducts. And that was exactly happened why we have such Undergound in Atlanta.

After enjoying sometime at the Courtesy Station of Underground, I walked back and continued enjoying my walk along Lower Alabama Street. On my way, I found additional carriage stone, a stone for gentry to step on to when people come out of their carriages. And finally, I finished my walking adventure and walks towards reach Five Points MARTA station which located at the start of my walk just below Peachtree Street SW.

Discovery : Carriage Stone – Underground Atlanta

Discovery (Post#34) : Carriage Stone – Underground Atlanta

Walking inside the streets of Underground such as Lower Alabama Street and Lower Pryor Street has some benefits in rediscovering history of Atlanta. One of the reminders of the old city are the carriages stones that still exist at the front of the stores along the street. Honestly, I didn’t knew the carriages stones means something until I read historical facts about its uses. It is used as step for the people who alighted from horse-drawn carriages so that their feet will not get dirty specially if the street became muddy.

Discovery (Post#33) : 138-Foot Tower (Peach Drop) – Underground Atlanta

When I walked towards Underground and when I passed the Peachtree Fountain Plaza, I saw a 138-foot tower. I didn’t knew at first if its significant in the area, the tower used where a huge like peach is drop as part of New Year’s Celebration in the city. Then, when I learned about Peach Drop, I realized the function of the tower. And then,  while I was looking for information about Underground, I discovered something about the reasoning behind the 138-Foot Tower. The 138 Foot symbolizes the 138 miles of the railroad run from Downtown Atlanta to Chattanooga Tennessee. These photos are part of Atlanta Walks Photo Collection November 2015.

Name Of The Place : Underground Atlanta

Name Of The Place (Post#40) : Underground Atlanta

They call Underground as the “Original Streets” in Atlanta and “City beneath the city”. Underground is a shopping and entertainment all in one near in Five Points. This historical place has been going on its ups and downs for the past century and up to this point Underground still struggling to survive. The photos that I captured was taken year of 2015 so I am not sure if the things that I saw that time will be the same as of now. These photos are part of Atlanta Walks Photo Collection November 2015.

Strolling at Downtown Atlanta (Peachtree Street Northwest – Atlanta Walk Part 5)

After coming from Centennial Olympic Park, my journey in exploring the city continues. I walked towards Andrew Young International Blvd NW and turned right in Carnegie Way NW until I reached it end at Forsyth St NW. From there I crossed the street to reach Margaret Mitchell Square which located between Forsyth St NW and Peachtree St NW.

Margaret Mitchell Square

From Margaret Mitchell Square, I wandered along Peachtree St NW and stopped when I reached Auburn Ave NE. Here I saw the historic Flatiron Building which built in 1897 and the curve fountain called International Peace Fountain which commemorates the significant role of Atlanta city towards civil and human rights movement.

While walking in Peachtree St NW, at the end of Woodruff Park, I saw a monument called “Atlanta From The Ashes” or simply “The Phoenix”. The monument symbolizes the rise of Atlanta from the ashes during the Civil War to become a world city. The monument was created by James Siegler of Houston, Texas.

Transportation : Atlanta – Streetcar

Transportation (Post#10) : Atlanta – Streetcar

In Atlanta they call it as streetcar which reminds me of trams in Melbourne. Though I haven’t taken this one at the time of my walks in Atlanta, it gave me impression as I had seen photos of the city that it uses streetcar before specially in major street such as Peachtree Street but I learned that it was phased out in 1949. But thinking about the streetcar, the city is trying to put it back. These photos are part of Atlanta Walks Photo Collection November 2015.

Another interesting historical building that I found along Peachtree St NW is what they called Flatiron Building (or as English-American Building) which completed in 1897, 5 years earlier that Flatiron Building in New York. At the time that I found this building it was under renovations. This building is protected by the city and listed in National Registers of Historic Places. Currently, the building is used for commercial space such as eateries, events and offices. These photos are part of Atlanta Walks Photo Collection November 2015.

Strolling at Centennial Olympic Park (Atlanta Walk Part 4)

The next place that I walked around was Centennial Olympic Park just beside Pemberton Place. While walking towards the park, I admired who did the urban planning of the area. Thinking how they carefully thought about the location of two major tourist destination Pemberton Place and Centennial Olympic Park. Because both locals and visitors can enjoy these places as it close to one another, a strategic objective with the mind for the guests welfare to appreciate this part of Downtown of the city.

IMG_5952_s

The things that I immediately saw after crossing Baker St NW

At the same day of my first visit in Pemberton Place, I crossed Baker St NW to see the open park which they called Centennial Olympic Park. Coming to this part of Downtown of the city have some benefits for the tourist or visitor like me because I was able to see Pemberton Place a home of three major tourist buildings which just the other side of Baker St NW and the Centennial Olympic Park on the other side. Any visitors whom just wanted to chill out in a lovely day can just hang out in the park or if they like, they can easily decide to visit one of the museums which located just around the corner.

Skyline View of Atlanta from the park

I enjoyed my stroll in the park because it gave me a glimpse of the skyline view of Atlanta. Yes, it was not the complete skyline view and just part of it but I was still amazed on the urbanity that surrounds the park. There are things that can be learned and appreciated while walking within the park as it offers audio tour like additional learnings to everyone, though I haven’t tried it while I was in the park, I just saw this from information board when I entered the park.

I didn’t see all what the park offers but I found interesting information for the things that I had seen such as : the Gateway of Dreams, Hermes Towers / Centennial Plaza and the Fountain Rings. During the walk, I also got a chance to see the CNN headquarter in Atlanta.

Featuring Our World (Post#8) : Centennial Olympic Park

Coming from Pemberton Place, I only need to cross Baker St NW to be able to reach Centennial Olympic Park. And one thing that I enjoyed aside from the things that it offers within the park, was the chance to see a bit of skyline of Atlanta. Even though it was not the complete skyline but because of huge open space in the park, all the buildings that surrounds it made the park a beautiful spot for taking photos of the city. These photos are part of Atlanta Walks Photo Collection November 2015.

Strolling at Pemberton Place (Atlanta Walk Part 3)

Pemberton Place is home of popular city tourist spots such as Georgia Aquarium, the largest aquarium in the world until 2012, the World of Coca-Cola museum where the Coca-Cola secret formula is hidden in their vault and Center for Civil and Human Rights where you may have a chance to listen the unimaginable experience of people because of color discrimination and persecution.

IMG_5938_s

First Visit

After enjoying my visit in World of Coca-Cola last November 14, 2015, I walked a bit around Pemberton Place. It is a complex where tourist can enjoy their time without going too far just to visit tourist spots. During the walk, I realized how fascinating the architectural designs of the buildings that surrounds the place. I can say that it was designed to be globally recognized as tourist district.

I had one time chance to eat inside Pemberton Cafe after my visit in World of Coca-Cola museum. Next, I had a chance to take photos outside of World of Coca-Cola. Then I saw the wonderful building of Center for Civil and Human Rights museum which I visited the next day.

Pemberton who invented Coca-Cola and additional photos of Center of Civil and Human Rights museum.

Restaurant : Pemberton Cafe

Restaurant (Post#1) : Pemberton Cafe

What can I say with this Cafe? It is an open-air beverage and food lounge. Honestly, this is just a typical cafe. When I came here to fill me in since I was really hungry, not so much people around. But still there were people whom like me that just wanted to eat after visiting one of the museum or after wandering around the place. Because the cafe just have small space, just few seats and tables are available. I took my order at the cashier area then I waited for my food. Next, I looked for available seats that I can take. I ate my food silently, when I was finished, I went off. Nothing to fancy in this cafe. The photo is part of Atlanta Walks Photo Collection November 2015.
