I thought of this question while waiting at the intersection of Church Street and North Decatur and was surprised to see that if you peer over the Nally car dealership, there’s a pretty nice view to the east. Decatur doesn’t have a raging river to gaze tenderly, mournfully, or peacefully at, but we’ve got some decent high points – be them natural or built on great pillars of steel – where you can look at the west and see the hiccuping, vertical skyline of Atlanta (DOWNTOWN, Midtown, buckhead) and to the east you can sometimes get a peak at Stone Mountain.
So I thought I’d ask: where are your favorite views in Decatur and around Atlanta? If anyone wants to snap a pic or two from their fav spot, I’m certainly willing to post a collection of them! That could be very cool.
