      I loved this article, but I also lived downtown blocks from the epicenter of Bachelorette hell in Nashville in an artists community that was recently bulldozed right on 2nd--for a luxury hotel. So yes, this article is tangentially about the gentrification that got that amazing community, the oldest apartments in Nashville in an upcycled 1800s factory/warehouse, bulldozed. There was a slight hill outside my window and the pedal taverns full of bachelorettes would scream as they coasted down to the same Whitney Houston song every time...we were living in a very unfortunate part of that playlist.

      I love this writer, her weekly-ish newsletter is one of my favorite curated reads and this has all the bits I like about her writing.
