People Watcher

I was at Lenox Square yesterday and became transfixed by all the diverse folks walking around. I get this way at Hartsfield-Jackson too. I love to people watch. Sometimes I play a game where I create a story for someone.

The mall and the airport are great people watching locations, obviously. Back in the day when we had festivals and concerts at Piedmont Park, that was also a great place to people watch.

What are some other places in Atlanta to enjoy all the diverse folks that live here?

    Peidmont Park and Little 5 Points. I also really like watching people at restaurants. Especially if they appear to be on a date. I try to figure out how well the date is going based strictly on their body language.

    Centennial Olympic Park and Peachtree Center are two of my favorites.

    Public transportation has a lot going for it and is the perfect place for people watching. Atlanta’s Marta train cars are the best I’ve seen for people watching. The seats face ‘every which way’. The stops are frequent and there is a lot of coming and going. Much of the lines I’m on, Inman\Reynolds to 5, then north on the Doraville line, have great views and light.

    That commute and the walk to and from the stations is often the best part of my day.
