This thesis is an analysis of a southwest Atlanta street, James P. Brawley Drive, and its sometimes complementary roles as campus destination and urban thoroughfare. There is an historical overview of the street in the context of the surrounding Atlanta University Center campuses, with particular attention given to the relationships which the street has helped foster over time. The decline and subsequent attempts at rehabilitation of the street are discussed, with emphasis given to the results of those attempts. Possible barriers to further rehabilitation are addressed. Finally, the analysis concludes with recommendations for both the immediate and long-term future of James P. Brawley Drive.
