"Eclectic Neighborhood"

The Lindbergh Morosgo subdivision of Atlanta is actually one of the most populated areas of all of metro Atlanta, as it actually has nearly triple the number of residences per square mile as Atlanta. In order to reach the subdivision from Atlanta you must take Interstate 85 north and Lindbergh Morosgo is located right where the Georgia 400 North exit is located.

The property value is higher than what you are going to find in the downtown Atlanta area, as the average house costs around $490,000, as compared to Atlanta's $355,000.

The school system in the area is comparable to what you'll find in other areas to the north of Atlanta. The schools are considered of higher quality than the downtown city schools, but there are still private school options also.

The Lindbergh Morosgo area is rather small, as it is just under a half square mile, and with a population of roughly 4,500, there isn't much space for parks and other recreational options. You need to head further north in order to find larger parks and outdoor activities.

Shopping and other attractions are a bit lacking in the area, although you are not very far off from Atlanta, which has most anything you need.

  • plenty of newer shops & restaurants

"Possibly the Next Big Thing?"

Lindbergh is a pleasant up-and-coming area. It is completely accessible if you are traveling by public transportation. Just stop at the Lindbergh (train) Station and you are there. Fitting enough, this area is home to the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) headquarters.

If you are looking to do some shopping, the Lindbergh Plaza has quite a few options. There is a Target, Home Depot, and Best Buy. This is perfect to assist with basic living purchases, as well as spur of the moment electronic indulgences. There is also another shopping center right across the street that has a Marshalls, Ross, and Michaels Arts & Crafts store (for the more creative spirit). Tucked back around the corner, you can find Miami Circle, a neat shopping center mostly comprised of antique stores.

If you are hungry, you definitely want to check out Lindbergh City Center. This new hang out spot harbors a host of yummy restaurants. There is a Chili’s, Taco Mac, and Five Guy’s in the area. There was a Bobby G’s. But, sadly it shut it’s doors a while ago. There are also a couple of options for nightlife. Wet Willie’s and Tongue & Groove are pretty cool places if you are looking to hang out with friends and grab a drink. The only downside to the Lindbergh City Center is that parking is really interesting. If you can manage to find street parking, consider yourself lucky. Most visitors will have to park in the parking deck. When this place was brand new, parking was completely free. But, now you have to grab a paper ticket and get it validated from the restaurant that you visit. If you fail to get your ticket validated, or lose it, be prepared to pay a couple of dollars.

This area is great for students and young professionals. Older couples might also enjoy the vibe at Miami Circle. There are several apartments in walking distance. In addition, there are plenty of live-work spaces for small business owners (perfect if you don’t mind living above where you work). This could possibly be the next big thing.

"It makes way more sense after that third spiked slushy"

This is a rather odd patch of Atlanta that owes its incongruity to a major redevelopment venture gone south (and no, unfortunately, that is not pun). Shiny new suburbanite staples like Longhorn Steak House, Chili’s and Five Guys look highly out of place in a city that prides itself on having one of the most original and innovative dining scenes in the nation. Add a towering “mixed-use” stretch dubbed Lindbergh City Center, which, in light of its distinct lack of residential appeal, has amounted to little more than an outdoor shopping mall, and this hardly looks like the Atlanta I know and love at all.

The effect is especially jarring when approaching from the south on Piedmont, where motorists emerge from “rubdown row” – a neon-sign-studded “massage” district – only to find themselves suddenly yearning for an Orange Julius. Though that particular merchant is absent from both the City Center and its neighboring Lindbergh Plaza (home to the requisite Michael's, Ross, Target, Home Depot, etc.) thirsty visitors can indulge their slushy beverage craving in true college-coed style - spiked with grain alcohol at an alarmingly titled and weirdly punctuated “Wet Willie’s” daiquiri bar. Other area oddities include Tongue & Groove, a skeevily lit club/lounge decorated with what appears to be remodel cast-offs from three separate, and probably much cooler, Miami counterparts; and The Dump, yet another terribly named venture that apparently does its business in bargain-basement furniture three days a week.

But look on the bright side: Thanks to the Lindbergh MARTA station, you can avoid the heinous pay-for-parking situation whenever you do get that hankering for a generic chain meal and a few hours of uninterrupted big-box shopping. Cheers!

"A nice part of town that will become more attractive with time"

Bustling traffic, multi-cultural bedroom community situated in a shopper’s paradise. This is not at all unexpected. After all, Lindbergh is smack dab in the middle of major thoroughfares, like Sydney Marcus Boulevard, Piedmont, Peachtree and Lindbergh Roads - the heart of Atlanta’s retail and entertainment center.

In the late 1990’s and 2000’s, money poured into the area in the form on investments and redevelopment projects. So, now that the projects are completed, what can you expect to see in the Lindbergh region of Atlanta?

Lindbergh Plaza, a semi-successful live, work, play – and transportation center serviced by MARTA’s public transit station is located there. The Plaza is home to a finite number of ‘requisite’ shops, chain restaurants and banks that serve the working set at lunchtime and evening happy hour. Beside it you will also find many newer multi-family residences and mid-rise buildings - including an arguably ‘failed’, multi-million dollar luxury-condo-turned-apartment complex which is now rumored to be home to Section 8 residents.

The Lindbergh community, in my opinion, fell victim of poor timing in a declining economy. Once the local home and commercial markets improve, Lindbergh with likely achieve its vision of becoming a mid to upscale live-work-play transportation hub. It’s a nice part of town that will become more attractive with time.
