The Queen City is the Heart of the New South

So I’ve heard that Atlanta calls itself the capitol of the New South. Ok, I’ll give them that, but if they are the capitol,then Charlotte NC is the Heart of the New South. We may be a smaller big city, but Charlotte has big city amenities, without most of the big city problems!

What’s new in Charlotte? How about Bearden Park (above), the Charlotte Knights stadium and record summer attendance, and the buzz surrounding the returning Charlotte Hormets.

What is the New South? It is the old south turned new, in Charlotte it is a city that has, in large part, moved past race and industrialized!  It began after the civil war, but it’s modern story begins where the Civil Rights movement ended. We have a museum here that explains it better, the Levine Museum of the New South.   This page was first posted in 2008, and was updated to 2014.

Charlotte is the Heart of the New South is our most successful  page ever on CharlotteCommunitiesOnline. First written in 2008, this page try’s to tell Charlotte’s story for newcomers, a modern city of the South, a financial powerhouse inside an economic powerhouse that stretches from Atlanta  up I-85 to  Charlotte, Durham and Raleigh.  This area, dubbed “Charlanta”  by demographer Richard Florida, had a GDP of $1 trillion in 2012, an economy larger than South Korea.
