"Neighborhood Cohesiveness"

The Peachtree Battle Alliance Neighborhood is a very trendy neighborhood located in the Northwest Side of Atlanta, GA. It is at the corner of Northside Dr NW and W Wesley Rd NW. The Peachtree Battle Parkway is located in the middle of the neighborhood. The neighborhood is given the name alliance because three other neighborhoods join together here. If you are looking for a neighborhood with a historic background, then this one is it.

It is an expensive neighborhood to live in. The average price of homes is very pricey. The majority of people who live in the neighborhood are wealthy.

It is a great neighborhood for families, since their is a park right in the middle of it. There is also a large tennis facility on the outskirts.

Shopping is also wonderful here, Atlanta every possible store you could ask for to shop in. So if you enjoy shopping, this would be a wonderful place to live.

The neighborhood even has it's own civic association which is very active. They also have a traffic calming committee to help handle the amount of traffic it gets from being located in Atlanta.

"When three become one"

The name of this neighborhood may sound like something out of a crappy sci-fi novel, but it’s actually derived from the infamous (old people in Atlanta know about it, anyway) and bloody Battle of Peachtree Creek during the Civil War – or “the War Between the States” as residents are wont to call it.

The “Alliance” part comes because the actual neighborhood unites portions of three others - Peachtree Heights Park, Westover and Haynes Manor. These communities, under the banner of the Alliance, even have their very own battle cry. Don’t get too excited though, or you’ll be just as disappointed as I was when I realized “The Battle Cry” was their newsletter.

There’s not a whole lot to differentiate the three parts that make up the whole, which is probably why it works as a neighborhood in the first place. All the typical trappings of a family-oriented, largely wealthy demographic are present throughout – nice houses; an ideal proximity to local watering holes/boutiques/restaurants/interstates; and lots of lawn to mow.

The civic association, in true Buckhead fashion, is highly active. They even have their own “PBA Traffic Calming Committee,” which is charged with mitigating and improving the notorious traffic jams and cut-throughs that make getting around these neighborhoods a nightmare – even if you’re doing it in a Lexxus (or whatever fancy cars you and the neighbors are driving these days).

Cheers!
