Cabbagetown/Reynoldstown Wish List

1) "I'd have a horseshoe stop in the yard. I'd like to hear more horseshoes rangin'." — Ronald Edwards, 74, former Cotton Mill worker

2) "I like it the way it is. I really don't want it to change." — Daniel Goodman, 30, server at Ecco in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Cotton Mill Loft resident

3) "A neighborhood watch in general would be fantastic, where everyone kind of keeps an eye out. I think we're already becoming more vigilant in doing that after some of the incidents here." — Monica Post, 44, hostess at Takorea and Reynoldstown resident

4) "A music venue. It's like the only thing missing. We've got a couple of good restaurants, a few different shops, and a couple different bars, but we don't have anything right here to hear good music." — Brad Cunard, 46, co-owner of Little's Food Store in Cabbagetown

5) "I don't know if it would even be possible, but bigger bike lanes would be nice." — Amy King, 31, student at Life University and recent Reynoldstown transplant
