Cities have the capacity to create a healthier, more satisfying way of life by augmenting their infrastructure in ways that connect neighborhoods and communities. The Atlanta Beltline is a former railway corridor under development in stages as a multi-use trail surrounding the core of the city. The author argues that given the success of this 22 mile path -- that has changed the face of the city and spurred private development -- it's time to use existing infrastructure to reconceive how we live in American cities. The Beltline now connects 40 diverse Atlanta neighborhoods to schools, shopping, and parks, and has already seen a huge payoff in real estate development and local business revenue. Similar projects around the country are covered: Los Angeles River Revitalization, Buffalo Bayou in Houston, Midtown Greenway in Minneapolis, Underline in Miami. Gravel presents an exciting blueprint, revitalizing cities to make them places where we truly want to live....
