A BeltLine for all?
This map visualizes demographic indicators of gentrification in neighborhoods (defined by census tracts) along the current and proposed path of the Atlanta Beltline, an “urban redevelopment” project under construction along a loop of disused railroad tracks that circumvent the city, stitching together some of its most historic neighborhoods.
This visualization was designed by Christopher Polack, Peter Polack, and Yanni Loukissas to add an interactive layer to the 2017 report "BeltLining: Gentrification, Broken Promises and Hope on Atlanta's Southside." The report was a collaborative effort between the Housing Justice League and Research|Action Cooperative. All data is from the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.
