Okay, on this occasion the BRITISH Course will provide a description of a city in the United States. The city we will be discussing is Atlanta City.

Atlanta City

Atlanta (/ætˈlæntə/ at-LAN-tə) is the capital and most populous city of the U.S. state of Georgia. It is the seat of Fulton County, the most populous county in Georgia, but its territory falls in both Fulton and DeKalb counties. With a population of 498,715 living within the city limits, it is the eighth most populous city in the Southeast and 38th most populous city in the United States according to the 2020 U.S. census, It is the core of the much larger Atlanta metropolitan area, which is home to more than 6.1 million people, making it the eighth-largest metropolitan area in the United States. Situated among the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains at an elevation of just over 1,000 feet (300 m) above sea level, it features unique topography that includes rolling hills, lush greenery, and the most dense urban tree coverage of any major city in the United States.

Atlanta was originally founded as the terminus of a major state-sponsored railroad, but it soon became the convergence point among several railroads, spurring its rapid growth. The largest was the Western and Atlantic Railroad, from which the name “Atlanta” is derived, signifying the city’s growing reputation as a major hub of transportation. During the American Civil War, it served a strategically important role for the Confederacy until it was captured in 1864. The city was almost entirely burnt to the ground during General William T. Sherman’s March to the Sea. However, the city rebounded dramatically in the post-war period and quickly became a national industrial center and the unofficial capital of the “New South”. After World War II, it also became a manufacturing and technology hub. During the 1950s and 1960s, it became a major organizing center of the American Civil Rights Movement, with Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph David Abernathy, and many other locals becoming prominent figures in the movement’s leadership. In the modern era, Atlanta has stayed true to its reputation as a major center of transportation, with Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport becoming the world’s busiest airport by passenger traffic in 1998 (a position it has held every year since, with the exception of 2020 as a result of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic).

With a gross domestic product (GDP) of $406 billion, Atlanta has the tenth largest economy of cities in the U.S. and the 20th largest in the world. Its economy is considered diverse, with dominant sectors in industries including transportation, aerospace, logistics, healthcare, news and media operations, film and television production, information technology, finance, and biomedical research and public policy. The gentrification of some its neighborhoods, initially spurred by the 1996 Summer Olympics, has intensified in the 21st century with the growth of the Atlanta Beltline. This has altered its demographics, politics, aesthetics, and culture.

Terjemahan

Atlanta (/ætˈlæntə/ at-LAN-tə) adalah ibu kota dan kota terpadat di negara bagian Georgia, AS. Itu adalah ibu kota Kabupaten Fulton, kabupaten terpadat di Georgia, tetapi wilayahnya termasuk dalam kabupaten Fulton dan DeKalb. Dengan populasi 498.715 yang tinggal di dalam batas kota, itu adalah kota terpadat kedelapan di Tenggara dan kota terpadat ke-38 di Amerika Serikat menurut sensus AS tahun 2020, Ini adalah inti dari wilayah metropolitan Atlanta yang jauh lebih besar, yang adalah rumah bagi lebih dari 6,1 juta orang, menjadikannya wilayah metropolitan terbesar kedelapan di Amerika Serikat. Terletak di antara kaki Pegunungan Appalachian pada ketinggian lebih dari 1.000 kaki (300 m) di atas permukaan laut, fitur topografi yang unik yang mencakup perbukitan, tanaman hijau subur, dan cakupan pohon perkotaan yang paling padat dari setiap kota besar di Amerika Serikat Serikat.

Atlanta awalnya didirikan sebagai ujung dari jalur kereta api utama yang disponsori negara, tetapi segera menjadi titik konvergensi di antara beberapa jalur kereta api, yang memacu pertumbuhannya yang pesat. Yang terbesar adalah Rel Kereta Api Barat dan Atlantik, dari mana nama “Atlanta” berasal, menandakan reputasi kota yang berkembang sebagai pusat transportasi utama. Selama Perang Saudara Amerika, kota ini memainkan peran strategis penting bagi Konfederasi sampai direbut pada tahun 1864. Kota ini hampir seluruhnya terbakar habis selama Pawai ke Laut Jenderal William T. Sherman. Namun, kota ini pulih secara dramatis pada periode pascaperang dan dengan cepat menjadi pusat industri nasional dan ibu kota tidak resmi dari “Selatan Baru”. Setelah Perang Dunia II, itu juga menjadi pusat manufaktur dan teknologi. Selama tahun 1950-an dan 1960-an, itu menjadi pusat pengorganisasian utama Gerakan Hak Sipil Amerika, dengan Martin Luther King Jr., Ralph David Abernathy, dan banyak penduduk lokal lainnya menjadi tokoh terkemuka dalam kepemimpinan gerakan tersebut. Di era modern, Atlanta mempertahankan reputasinya sebagai pusat transportasi utama, dengan Bandara Internasional Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta menjadi bandara tersibuk di dunia berdasarkan lalu lintas penumpang pada tahun 1998 (posisi yang dipegangnya setiap tahun sejak itu, kecuali di 2020 sebagai akibat dari pandemi COVID-19 di seluruh dunia).

Dengan produk domestik bruto (PDB) sebesar $406 miliar, Atlanta memiliki ekonomi kota terbesar kesepuluh di AS dan terbesar ke-20 di dunia. Perekonomiannya dianggap beragam, dengan sektor dominan dalam industri termasuk transportasi, kedirgantaraan, logistik, kesehatan, operasi berita dan media, produksi film dan televisi, teknologi informasi, keuangan, dan penelitian biomedis dan kebijakan publik. Gentrifikasi beberapa lingkungannya, awalnya didorong oleh Olimpiade Musim Panas 1996, telah meningkat di abad ke-21 dengan pertumbuhan Atlanta Beltline. Ini telah mengubah demografi, politik, estetika, dan budayanya.
