There is a new site for this year’s Atlanta’s New Year’s Eve Peach Drop for our Park Canyon residents to enjoy.  For the first time, the peach will drop from the 120-year-old Flatiron Building downtown on Dec. 31, the Atlanta mayor’s office announced. The new site is a few blocks from Underground Atlanta, where the Peach Drop has been held in recent years.

Atlanta’s Flatiron Building, which opened in 1897, is Atlanta’s oldest standing skyscraper, Mayor Kasim Reed said in announcing the Peach Drop’s new site. According to Reed, it was the nation’s first flatiron-style high-rise, built before the iconic flatiron building in New York City.
