Fortune and CNN Money Stories on Farish and ‘Indie Jackson'

Enjoy. And pass the word.

Word went around last week that JFP friend Amy Haimerl had done a piece about Jackson, and Farish Street, for Fortune Small Business. The story is now published here on CNN Money where Amy is an editor. Also see her "Indie Jackson" piece about the St. Paddy's parade and the Sweet Potato Queens. (And noticed she used JFP/Lounge List photographer Kip Caven's photo on it!)

Oh, and another friend was in the office yesterday who works for NPR's Planet Money (and is from Jackson, originally). She was saying how she was struck with the positive aspects of Jackson's development and growing vibrancy. And she's in the business of reporting some pretty depressing stuff these days. So that's good news. We have to keep getting the word out about the good stuff happening here.

I was just getting ready to post about this story! It is terrific to see our city in the spotlight in this way, along with friends Kamikaze, David Watkins, Hal & Mal's and many, many others. Don't forget to click through to the accompanying "Indie Jackson" that Ladd mentioned. Fun stuff here!

Oooo, I just noticed that "Indie Jackson" is a photo gallery of nine different photos and write-ups ALL ABOUT JACKSON. Yay, Amy, you really did right by Jacktown!

Does anyone know of any efforts to improve upon the residential area of the Farish Street District? This entertainment district seems to be acting as more of an extension of the convention center and new downtown projects than the historic neighborhood itself.
