"Maybe good for investors... maybe?"

Bankhead-Bolden is not exactly the Bankhead that you might be thinking of. It’s actually about 5 miles away from the Bankhead that you may have heard about in countless Atlanta rap songs. Nearby streets include Fulton Industrial Blvd and Donald Lee Hollowell Pkwy. If you are familiar with this area, you probably already know that there is not too much of a difference between Bankhead-Bolden and Bankhead.

The area is a mixture of industrial warehouses and abandoned homes. First and foremost, I must say that I typically only recommend areas like this for investors and business owners. The reason being is that the property is super cheap. If you are looking to relocate here (as a resident), don’t bother anytime soon. Maybe wait until more investors start paying attention to this neighborhood a little more. Property value is extremely low and there is also some crime here.

There is also not too much to get into outside of visiting local auto parts, and supply stores. So, I would definitely not recommend this place for the younger crowd. You’d probably get bored to death. I guess a good thing about this area is that it is only about 10 miles away from Downtown Atlanta, which means easy access to other parts of the city as well.
