"On the edge of swank"
Briarcliff Road is a long road that continues north from Moreland Avenue at Ponce de Leon, just north of Little 5 Points (L5P). In the mile or two north of Ponce and Briarcliff, you'll find lots of small apartment complexes and a few amazingly swank condos. In the mile or two west of it, however, you'll find lots of people who are down on their luck and not averse to a bit of dumpster diving or panhandling. They do come through here occasionally, but as there aren't many restaurants or other places people congregate, it's not particularly attractive to them.
