"Lonely little place"

Rue Royal is a neighborhood located in the south west section of Atlanta out side of the perimeter. (interstate 285). The community stands between Cambellton road and Green Briar Parkway. This area typically has a high concentration of the working class and low income individuals. 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 south west Atlanta communities, Rue Royal is in close proximity to several public parks. To the south, there’s Deerwood park, to the north west there’s Ben Hill Recreation Center. Ben Hill Rec center offers a great alternative to area youth to enjoy sports and other activities. Most residents attend either Therell high school or Tri-Cities high school and the nearest institutes of higher learning are Atlanta Christian College and the Atlanta University Center. There are two places that are attractions to the residents of Rue Royal. The closest place to enjoy entertainment would have to be Green Briar Mall. The second attraction is Hartfield-Jackson Airport. I would not suggest this area as an option for people seeking a place to reside. Rue Royal is very much the same place it has been for the last two decades with little change. Unfortunately, there’s not enough residents there truly interested in turning things around.
