Now I know where that expression comes from - Atlanta is all about “comfort.” Take Fork And Screen, a movie theater that I went to last night where they serve food and drinks in a restaurant-style setting. With a full bar, I don’t think something like this would be very popular in the Northeast.
My apartment building feels more like a hotel - it has a Olympic size swimming pool, steam rooms and tanning beds. I pay less in rent for this place than I did for a four-bedroom apartment with a mice problem on Columbus Avenue.
One thing that feels weird though is the fact that nobody walks here. I knew Atlanta wasn’t a “walkable” city like Boston before I came, but it’s a little strange experiencing it firsthand when I’ve been so used to strolling through crowded sidewalks.
