Inman Park is where members of the city's creative class go when they hit the big time ? or where those seeking the refuge of quaint coach houses or partitioned Victorians go to fake it. It's the perfect mix of resplendence and cool. Founded in the 1890s, the neighborhood prides itself on being Atlanta's first suburb and among the first intown neighborhoods to undergo a resurgence in the late 1960s. Founded by Atlanta developer Joel Hurt in 1890, Inman Park began as an oasis for Atlanta's elite. Since then, the area has seen numerous periods of prosperity and decline. Recently, its eastern edge has undergone massive redevelopment, with towering condo buildings and new townhomes dominating the landscape and the development of the old Atlanta Stove Works into the bustling Krog Street Market, filled with shops, restaurants, and food stalls. Given the area's proximity to the coveted Beltline Eastside Trail, progress has only begun to rear its head in this part of the neighborhood.
