"Charming Homes the Stigma Remains"

I remember this neighborhood from visiting my grandmother. It had wide, clean streets and lots of kids in the neighborhood. At the time it was a diverse mix of residents, but soon most of the original people moved out and the property and neighborhood began to decline.

This neighborhood, located in Southwest Atlanta off of Metropolitan Pkwy, Lee Street, and the proposed Beltline, is said to have an excellent view of the capitol building downtown. It features 1920s style bungalow homes and has some of the best prices in the city. The appeal and charm of the homes is the attraction for many planning to move into area.

Though the area is on the upswing it is still rebuilding from a bad reputation. Crime is not as high but there are still occasional incidences. This neighborhood has one of the best schools in the city so it may be worth the look.

The area would be more attractive if there were more shopping. You have to travel to nearby neighborhoods to get to coffee shops, grocery stores, and shopping centers. It is a ten minute commute to the airport and other areas within the city.

Attractions
There are two great parks in the area to hang out in and meet your neighbors. It’s an easy ride to downtown attractions like the Georgia Dome, Phillips Arena, the Zoo, and other popular attractions.
Pros
  • affordable homes
Cons
  • traces of crime
