Online responses to 'Plaza Fiesta!'

Online responses to the "Plaza Fiesta!" cover story by Alyssa Abkowitz, published June 22, 2006.

USED TO BE DOUR?: As a life long resident of the neighborhood, I wish they would mow this place down. The trash, the bad drivers, the rude and inconsiderate attitudes make this area worse every day. I am so glad that development is pushing down Dresden towards the Buford-Clairmont corridor. As soon as someone buys this place (and the very nasty Clairmont Lodge) the better.

NO COMPRENDO THE PRIOR COMMENT: Sounds like plaza fiesta has been successful, so why are you so desperate for it to be razed?? Clairmont lodge has already been replaced w/nice apartments, but BuHi still has many nasty apartments. Also, the publix pulled out of NE plaza at least 8-10 months ago, but that's the only error I found. There is now a Hispanic grocery store in that location.

WHAT AN OVERWROUGHT PIECE OF TRIPE: You read this article, and the only rational reaction is "good grief". "To Atlantans today, Plaza Fiesta has become as vital a shopping destination as Lenox Square or the Mall of Georgia." Guess again, kumquat. According to the article, this tacky corner of the Buford Highway immigrant corridor hosts about 1.3 million shoppers a year. Lenox Square hosts approximately *eleven times* that many. The average shopper at Lenox Square spends about $115 dollars per visit. The average shopper at this place probably spends about ten bucks. Don't try to make this piece of crap property (notice you didn't mention the shootings that regularly happen in the parking lot there) to be anything but a gathering place for a bunch of fairly low paid blue collar workers.
