What a neat neighborhood! Twenty years ago, I would not have been caught dead in Peoplestown – day nor night. Its reputation as a crime-ridden area is a distant memory, for the most part. Drug dealers have been replaced by a vicious neighborhood watch - intent on keeping it that way.

Gentrification is nearly complete; all of the once rundown shotgun homes in the area have been fully renovated complete with Jacuzzi tubs and granite countertops, attracting a diverse and inclusive community.

Now Peoplestown is a kaleidoscope of colorful houses, in this nicely revitalized neighborhood. Smart multi-cultural residents, who swooped in to snatch up fixer-upper bungalows back in the early 2000’s, are now sitting on their front porches, pleased as punch about their investments there. There are definite benefits of this neighborhood: access to MARTA, excellent views of the Georgia Dome, only moments away from downtown.

Located in the shade of Turner Field, there are two down sides of living here. One can hear the din of both Interstates I-85 and I-20 from this neighborhood at all hours. And in any given summer, the residents have to dodge Atlanta Braves fans – and the traffic during some 75 home games each year. But hey, if you are a Braves fan, game parking will never a problem for you!
