What Bert Has To Say About Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell Metro Area

The large, energetic and cosmopolitan Atlanta is a booming regional center for the growing and increasingly prosperous American South. Originally Atlanta was founded as a transportation crossroads, as railroads converged on its end-of-mountains location and radiated in all directions. Today’s Atlanta still plays that role, both for ground and air transport, as it originates more flights than any city except Chicago. But more generally, Atlanta has boomed, first as home to such giants as Coca-Cola and Delta Airlines, and more recently as a vital regional and headquarters business center for large corporations. Home offices for Home Depot, UPS, CNN and Bellsouth are in the area, and almost any company you can think of has an operation here, and some are quite large.
