Atlantans Transported (Conclusion)

Plans are being made to improve the public transportation system of Atlanta. The CEO of MARTA is striving for expansion, and the city hopes to add 200 miles of bike lanes by the year 2030. (4)(5) Access to areas that were once hard to reach will solve the problem of architectural exclusion for many people. No one should feel stranded or stressed because they cannot reach their destination Public transportation should enable all to get where they need to go to live a successful, happy, and healthy life.       (source 4): Blau, Max. “Back On Track.” Atlanta 55.6 (2015) : 106-117.

“Wait, but can I get there on MARTA?” (Part 2)

Poor public transportation can leave some people feeling stranded. Schedules must be made to coincide with the schedule of public transport. People are forced to endure long wait times and long routes to their destination. Sometimes taking public transportation is not even an option. Personally, I can’t get home on MARTA as the rail line does not go to my city. I am bound by the limitations of MARTA. (3) This type of architectural exclusion is a stress for the people that face it. Public transportation is a system that is supposed to fulfill the needs of the public. Instead of doing so, the public transportation systems limits those who rely on it.       MARTA rail line and stations.         (source 3)...

Website for the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport

The website for the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is a useful site for both the resident of Atlanta as well as the tourists. The website offers information on flights and the airport itself. The layout of the webpage is easy to follow and easily accessible. The content of the website’s homepage is set up in a way that displays what is seemingly the most frequently accessed information. This information is set up on in boxes in the center of page, and is most likely the first thing seen when opening this site. On the left side of the webpage, the box allows visitors (of the website) to enter information into the fields so that they may find out more about their travels. Additionally, the box on the left features a tab that contains links to the maps of different terminals in the airport. The box on the right of the page offers information on parking and wait times at the Atlanta airport. Visitors would not have to look through the tabs under the header image as links to what is most often accessed is given further down the homepage. The advantage of this layout design is that visitors of the site do not have to search far and long for what they need. However, that same advantage is also the flaw of the website. When information and links are given on the homepage in this arrangement, most visitors do not look further. For a website such as the one for the Atlanta airport, a large amount of pages containing much information goes unseen by the common visitor. Essentially, these other...

Junkman’s Daughter: Store for everything

Located on 464 Moreland Ave NE in Atlanta, Junkman’s Daughter is a one-of-a-kind store. Walking into the store, I was immediately greeted by employees that were just as eccentric as the store they worked in. I was absolutely dazzled. Everywhere I looked there was a color just as vibrant as the next. The bold pink and the dark shades of purple and blue all stood out. Music was playing in the background, some some with a funky beat, and people were looking around (quite possibly as dazzled as I was). I wasn’t sure what to take pictures of or what to observe. I simply pulled out my phone and took note of everything, snapping dozens of photos. There didn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason for the layout of Junkman’s Daughter or the contents of the store. There were aisles for people to walk through, but there existed clusters of clothing and other items. It didn’t seem like there was any one places for the dresses, the shirts, and the pants. Everything had its own place in the odd mix. Just as the placement of items was an odd mix, Junkman’s Daughter seemed to attract a mix of people. It felt like a store for anyone and everyone. There was no set style of clothing, no specific type of clothing, and not even only clothing was sold there. I took everything in with reckless abandon. The name of the store definitely fit. It was “junk” all gathered in one place. It was the hidden treasure of Junkman’s Daughter. Very rarely did I have to squeeze between racks, and...
