"If it werent for those boarded-up homes"

Norwood Manor is located on Atlanta’s southeast side. It is a quiet, neighborhood that has some of the cutest little 1940’s homes. Although some of the homes are single family, there are quite a bit of duplexes and triplexes in this community. I would say that the residents in this neighborhood mostly consist of your working class families, first-time home buyers and the elderly. Cost of living is relatively inexpensive here. But, there are occasional properties that have questionably higher resale values.

Norwood Manor is another one of the many Atlanta neighborhoods experiencing redevelopment. Some parts of this neighborhood look fairly nice, but then, there are random abandoned boarded-up homes and uncut vacant lots of land. These eyesores are a big pain, especially for neighbors who are trying their best to maintain their part of the deal. Hey... it takes a village.

Norwood Manor is home to a few local small parks and it is only about 10 minutes away from Grant Park (one of the city’s most beautiful hidden gems). There is honestly not much to do in this area in terms of shopping and eating out. I mean, there are a few local auto parts stores and random food marts around, but who really calls that entertainment?

Nearby schools include, Atlanta Youth Academy, Thomasville Heights Elementary School and Dobbs Elementary School. This area is also less than 2 miles away from the Fulton County Board-Education. Over all, I have mixed feelings about this area, but feel free to test it for yourself, if you are close-by.
