A member of the development group about to start construction on the Salem Gardens development at 6th Av. and Garfield told me after the Nashville City Paper's story that the financiers funding the project want to change the name to Germantown Gardens because of the negative connotations in the false reporting. Over the weekend, another member of the development confirmed to S-townWife that the name will probably change to Germantown Gardens. That member also told S-townWife that he did not see William Williams' half-hearted attempt to redeem the situation a week later, precisely because it was "buried" deep inside the publication.
Those of us in Salemtown can thank the City Paper for pushing us off the map.
