How an old loop of railroads is changing the face of a city | Ryan Gravel



Urban planner Ryan Gravel shares the story of how his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, rallied to build a massive urban park that will transform an abandoned railroad track into 22 miles of public green space called the Atlanta BeltLine. The places we live aren’t inevitable, he says — and if we want something different, we need to speak up.

    Having moved to Atlanta from Germany i was used to a certain standart of getting around just by walking, riding my bike or using my longboard to only realize that this is not the reality here. Then a friend told me about the Atlanta Beltline and it has changed my life and made me so happy. Everybody i see there is in a good mood. There are so many great things along side the Beltline. I'm truly thankful for what Ryan Gravel has done!

    Changing the world for the better?, dude here in the Netherlands we've been doing this for years!.

    And most countries couldn't keep up with our solution in infrastructure and renovations because of politics.

    Why is it ridicolous to ride a bike to the store??? Here everybody does that… Especially older people or mothers with children who do not have a car…

    Lower end of the economic spectrum? You mean power right?

    Capitalism even denies poverty by complicating it

    I appreciate the focus on people as the priority of urban development.

    I believe that sometimes our biases for our projects draw priority to our egos, and away from the broader purpose of our projects. I have been guilty of this.

    Seeing the Humility displayed in this talk is inspiring. Thank you.

    That is occurring in Beaufort SC where I live. the old tracks are becoming a really nice bike trail that runs around the whole county.
    Some of the wealthier home owners weren't happy about it because those tracks had become known as the "Crack head super highway". they thought crime would increase.

    that was silly. now the paths are open. criminals can't try to hide behind and within the overgrowth that once existed there.

    I like it.

    It's a good place for the rapists and muggers to hang out like a mobile buffet of sorts.

    The land area of the US is huge and the differences in climate throughout is varied. Some states have feet of snow every winter and other have little to none. So, in the US, it really depends on what region you live in – whether it is even feasible to ride a bicycle to the market regularly. Also, in rural areas you may not even have a local grocery store (or the items are priced so high, that most people travel to the nearest metro area just to save money). Most state or local governments in the US have not made alternative transport a priority, in terms of support or infrastructure; the ones that have are in the minority.

    jfc, can presenters please stop with this self congratulating, fake humility, utopian tone! it's nauseating and the foundation of many a boondoggle. if what he's selling is so wonderful, he should find more than enough willing participants to fund it! i'm pretty certain that isn't the case. every talk like this should start with the speaker and interested parties declaring their financial interest in the project, and who's funding it.
