"Not too much to say here"

Center Hill is a neighborhood located in northwest section of Atlanta. The community stands between Donald Lee Hollowell Highway and Hamilton E. Holmes Drive. Donald Lee Hollowell was once known as Bankhead Highway, the famed Atlanta community. This area typically has a high concentration of unemployment, poverty and crime. Theft and break-ins are common here as many residents have moved away. According to crime reports, larceny is the number one crime for this area.

Like many other Atlanta communities, Center Hill is in close proximity to several public parks. To the south, there’s Anderson park, to the north there’s Center Hill Park. Most residents attend either Douglas High School or Benjamin E Mays high School and the nearest institutes of higher learning are Georgia Tech and the Atlanta University Center. Center Hill doesn’t really have a character of its own in regards to restaurants and happenings. The closest place to enjoy entertainment would have to be the Georgia dome for Falcon games or into the Midtown area. I would not suggest this area as an option for people seeking a place to reside. Center Hill has all of the trappings and ingredients that make it the destructive place that it is today. Unfortunately there’s not enough residents there truly interested in turning things around.
