Atlanta

Kirkwood/Edgewood Neighborhood

About five miles east of Five Points, Kirkwood began as a pastoral, turn-of-the-century Atlanta streetcar suburb. Nowadays, Kirkwood is still a fascinating hodgepodge of grand Victorian-style homes, quaint bungalows, parks, and small businesses. Its retail district has blossomed, with most amenities... | more...

West End/Atlanta University Center Neighborhood

Besides being home to the largest conglomerate of historically black colleges and universities in the nation, the West End presents the kind of cultural dichotomy — from the Southern folkloric figure Uncle Remus found at the Wren's Nest to such Afrocentric institutions as the Shrine of the Black Mad... | more...

East Atlanta Neighborhood

With its bars, music venues and restaurants and pop-up bistros, East Atlanta is the hub of Atlanta's underground nightlife and the city's trendsetting counterculture. It's also where many people who live OTP choose to go ITP on the weekends. But don't despair, there is a high-enough concentration of... | more...

Poncey-Highland Neighborhood

For a relatively small neighborhood, Poncey-Highland has a hell of a lot going on: movies at the deco-chic Plaza Theatre, drinks at true-blue political haunt Manuel's Tavern; meals post-midnight at the Majestic Diner. There's a never-ending supply of colorful street characters along Ponce de Leon Av... | more...

Westside Neighborhood

Once a wasteland of warehouses and industrial spaces, Atlanta's Westside has been transformed into what's arguably the city's hottest 'hood for top-shelf dining, loft living, and highbrow shopping. Indie galleries also have taken up residence and banded together with institutions such as the Atlanta... | more...

Virginia-Highlands/Morningside Neighborhood

Virginia-Highland, founded as a streetcar suburb nearly a century ago, and now incorporated as an intown 'hood is where residents can walk to restaurants, boutiques, bars, grocery stores, and even a neighborhood movie theater. There are few places in Virginia-Highland you can't reach by way of a ple... | more...

Little Five Points Neighborhood

Situated a few miles east of downtown Atlanta, at what used to be the intersections of Euclid, Moreland, McLendon, and Seminole avenues, Little Five Points is so named because, yes, it?s a smaller version of Five Points downtown. Once vying to be the Greenwich Village of Atlanta, it?s become more th... | more...

Castleberry Hill Neighborhood

Between the Atlanta University Center and south Downtown lies Castleberry Hill, a neighborhood with one of the most colorful histories in the city. During Atlanta?s infancy, it served as the town?s answer to a red-light district until the onset of the Civil War, whereupon it ceased its wicked ways a... | more...

Grant Park Neighborhood

This leafy neighborhood boasts one of Atlanta's grandest parks, established in 1883, polished up in 1903 by the Olmstead brothers, and revitalized in 1996 by a group that became the Grant Park Conservancy. Bounded on two sides by the Beltline, the historic 'hood can have the cozy, genteel feel of a ... | more...

Summerhill Neighborhood

 




With the Atlanta Braves now in Cobb County, and Georgia State University quickly moving forward with plans to expand its housing and sports facilities, neighborhood residents are cautiously optimistic as they wait for the promised retail and residential projects to take shape in the area bli... | more...

Old Fourth Ward Neighborhood

Long known as the historic ?Sweet Auburn? neighborhood associated with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement ? the MLK Center, his boyhood home and Ebenezer Baptist Church where he preached are all within walking distance ? the Old Fourth Ward has recently become a bustling n... | more...

Buckhead Neighborhood

Atlanta's swankiest neighborhood, Buckhead is no longer the epicenter of Atlanta's once buck-wild nightclub scene ? and that's the way most residents like it. The ritzy streets of Buckhead development have taken over, offering a nightlife that appeals to the residents of the many new condos and apar... | more...

Cabbagetown/Reynoldstown Neighborhood

The popular neighborhood was known as Factory Town or Fulton Mill Village before it became Cabbagetown. Its narrow streets and crooked lanes ? and those of nearby Reynoldstown ? aren?t suitable for crosstown traffic, and that suits residents just fine. Rows of shotgun houses and old brick buildings ... | more...

Midtown Neighborhood

From its skyscrapers housing national and international business headquarters to the apartment views with citywide views from their rooftop pools, no part of the city has evolved more dramatically over the past two decades than Midtown, once a funky, seedy hippie and gay epicenter. The High Museum o... | more...
