This past October, Franklin, Tennessee was featured in the New York Times. The New York Times recognized Franklin, TN as a “small-town gem near Nashville” and it discussed many of the downtown attractions. This exciting acknowledgement is huge for Franklin to be put on the map and let the world know a bit more about the area. Here is a look at what the New York Times made known to the nation about this great town in Tennessee.
What the NY Times Article Entailed
The article talked about places to go, places to eat and places to stay. The article told the city like a story in which four ladies met for drinks at Cork & Cow on a Sunday night. Describing the restaurant, the author discussed the two-story brick building and that it was located at Main Street and Fourth in downtown Franklin.
Author Christian L. Wright discussed the food that the table nearby ordered the $20 prime rib dinner special and half-price bottles of wine. The four girls were there drinking champagne and enjoying brussel sprouts and salads.
From there, the story went on to discuss how the restaurant was near the town square, obvious by its Confederate soldier monument. This is right by the toy store selling wooden pickup trucks, a Starbucks and an Anthropologie. Describing the area, Wright wrote about the brick sidewalks, cobblestone crosswalks, wood-framed storefronts, antique street lamps and the feel of a small-town.
Wright discussed the town as a Southern gem in the shadow of Nashville. It was mentioned that their historic downtown won the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. Wright said he may have missed Franklin if it weren’t for his sister mentioning it as a recent resident since 2009. Since Wright has been visiting since then, she’s had a chance to see the growth firsthand while retaining a small-town feel.
Wright went on to describe the Franklin Antique Mall, the Franklin Theater, Frothy Monkey, and the Puckett’s Grocery and Restaurant. After describing so eloquently the beauty of the small-town lifestyle in Franklin, Wright listed these places to eat with their addresses and features, the places to stay and which attractions you must stop by upon visiting.
Thanks to the New York Times, Franklin, TN just got recognized for the beautiful lifestyle is truly offers folks.
