"On an 'upward' spiral?"

The Boulevard Avenue area of Atlanta can be a bit dicey. To be fair, it has great institutions nearby like The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center, the Atlanta Medical Center (formerly Georgia Baptist Hospital) and doctor’s offices, and boasted close proximity to colorful places like the Ponce de Leon Avenue scene and Piedmont Park.

But…

Boulevard, a relatively poor area of Atlanta, still struggles with a tough guy reputation. Though its high crime rates are coming down somewhat, the area continues to fall victim to a few bad apples responsible for car-jackings, street corner drugs dealing activities, and other violent crime.
Things are beginning to change, slowly. Though I would not walk by myself after dark, you do get a sense of renewed pride. Abandoned buildings are becoming renovated, litter is not as prevalent as it once was in the earlier 2000’s.

Don’t get me wrong. I am rooting for Boulevard to truly turn the corner and attract new development. It’s prime location adjacent to the I-20, the I-75/I-85 Connector and its proximity to major corporations like Georgia Power Company and new and improving homes (attracting a more upwardly mobile set) – all seem to make transformation inevitable.

Boulevard, I am pulling for you!
