Atlanta Neighborhoods

Adair Park Neighborhood

Adair Park, which bills itself as "Atlanta's best kept secret," is characterized by the quintessential elements of old turn-of-the-century charm: large front porches, landscaped gardens, and picturesque bungalows. Founded in 1892 by George Washington Adair, the same developer who helped build Virgin... | more...

Argonne Forest Neighborhood

One of Atlanta?s fanciest-schmanciest suburbs, Argonne Forest was developed on the grounds of a 100-acre estate in the mid-1950s. Though many of its homes date back to its modest mid-century beginnings, some of the neighborhood?s elegant stucco homes could rightly be called mansions, right down to t... | more...

Avondale Estates Neighborhood

Avondale Estates is known for its mock Tudor village of storefronts along College Avenue, the city?s main drag. Veer off College towards Lake Avondale park, and you?ve left Shakespeare?s England and turned into a bucolic scene from a Norman Rockwell painting, all of it inspired when George Francis W... | more...

Bankhead Neighborhood

The home of the Bankhead Bounce, Kilo Ali, T.I., Young Dro, D4L, and Shawty Lo, among others, is so intrinsic to the city?s cultural identity that when city hall renamed that stretch of Bankhead Highway in honor of civil rights attorney Donald Lee Hollowell, it was respectfully ignored. The neighbo... | more...

Ben Hill Neighborhood

Many of the street names, schools, parks, and the majority of institutions associated with this OTP Atlanta neighborhood, just west of East Point, are named after Benjamin Harvey Hill, a 19th-century U.S. congressman, then senator. Ben Hill is also home to one of the oldest antebellum buildings in A... | more...

Blandtown Neighborhood

Not much remains of the original churches and residences that made up the historically black neighborhood of Blandtown, which took its name from a freed slave named Felix Bland. These days, discount furniture outlets line Huff Road near the Westside. Nearby, restaurants such as Bone Garden Cantina a... | more...

Bolton Neighborhood

Things that don?t typically define a great neighborhood surround Bolton: a landfill to the north, a derelict strip mall to the east, a rail yard to the west, and a cemetery to the south. But it?s what?s in the center that reveals the northwest Atlanta community?s core. A combination of older brick o... | more...

Brookhaven Neighborhood

What once was affectionately known as Brookhaven Beach, an area populated by many Atlanta area musicians in the ?60s and ?70s because of its cheap rental properties and bohemian atmosphere, is now the antithesis of what once was. Brookhaven officially became a city in December 2012, adding to a long... | more...

Buckhead Neighborhood

Atlanta's swankiest neighborhood, Buckhead is no longer the epicenter of Atlanta's once buck-wild nightclub scene ? and that's the way most residents like it. The ritzy streets of Buckhead development have taken over, offering a nightlife that appeals to the residents of the many new condos and apa... | more...

Buford Highway Neighborhood

In 1974, the Atlanta Rhythm Section sang the virtues of Doraville with the line, ?A touch of country in the city." Today, you might wonder, "Which country?" as you drive along Buford Highway on either side of the Doraville line and read the billboards and shop signs in Spanish, Korean, Vietnamese, a... | more...

Cabbagetown/Reynoldstown Neighborhood

The popular neighborhood was known as Factory Town or Fulton Mill Village before it became Cabbagetown. Its narrow streets and crooked lanes ? and those of nearby Reynoldstown ? aren?t suitable for crosstown traffic, and that suits residents just fine. Rows of shotgun houses and old brick buildings ... | more...

Candler Park Neighborhood

The Candler Park neighborhood is situated on 55 acres of greenspace that Coca-Cola founder Asa Candler donated as a city park to Atlanta in 1922, a wooded area bordered by Ponce De Leon Avenue and McLendon. Tucked in and around grassy, rolling hills, the park features a nine-hole golf course a swimm... | more...

Capitol View Neighborhood

Fans of street grids and bungalows priced below Old Fourth Ward prices, welcome to your dream ?hood. Developed as a streetcar suburb in the early 20th century, the residential neighborhood enjoys the 50-acre Perkerson Park to the south and the Atlanta BeltLine?s Westside Trail to the north. You migh... | more...

Cascade Neighborhood

Affluent homes of successful doctors, lawyers and businessmen line the streets, high-priced cars grace the driveways and children play outside in their front yard. No, it’s not a scene from an exclusive Buckhead neighborhood; it’s a typical Saturday afternoon in Cascade Corridor, one of southwest At... | more...

Castleberry Hill Neighborhood

Between the Atlanta University Center and south Downtown lies Castleberry Hill, a neighborhood with one of the most colorful histories in the city. During Atlanta?s infancy, it served as the town?s answer to a red-light district until the onset of the Civil War, whereupon it ceased its wicked ways a... | more...

Chamblee/Doraville Neighborhood

Chamblee offers affordable housing inside the Perimeter, is practically adjacent to the Buford Highway corridor of ethnic restaurants, and lies just a few miles from Buckhead's shopping districts. Once a heavily industrialized area with little to offer in the way of dining and recreation, massive re... | more...

Chastain Park Neighborhood

The words Chastain Park may bring to mind summer nights picnicking in the bleachers at State Bank Amphitheater at Chastain Park, watching Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band, or one of the many ?80s packages booked there. Or perhaps a day spent on the green at North Fulton Golf Course. Or the memory mi... | more...

Cheshire Bridge Neighborhood

No description provided | more...

Chosewood Park Neighborhood

When a Living Walls mural by Argentine artist Hyuro, featuring a naked woman, was vandalized after facing resistance from some Chosewood Park residents in 2012, it marked the first time many within the city had heard of the southeast Atlanta neighborhood. Established after the turn of the 19th centu... | more...

Clarkston Neighborhood

If you're passing through on East Ponce de Leon Avenue, Clarkston feels like Anytown, USA. But stop for a minute, and you'll find a quaint borough that harbors a whole lot of ethnic diversity. Strategically positioned close to the Atlanta office of the International Rescue Committee, which helps ref... | more...

College Park/East Point/Hapeville Neighborhood

If there?s one thing College Park and East Point share, other than a border, it?s their misleading neighborhood names: There are no colleges currently located in College Park, and East Point is technically located on the western side of Atlanta. Nevertheless, both East Point and College Park have es... | more...

Collier Heights Neighborhood

When former Atlanta construction magnate Herman J. Russell?s 1963 ranch home hit the market earlier this year for close to half a million dollars, it symbolized the hidden cultural riches of Collier Heights. Located on the city?s Westside, Collier Heights remains such a treasure due in part to its l... | more...

Decatur/Oakhurst Neighborhood

Just a few miles from downtown Atlanta down Ponce de Leon Avenue sits what's arguably metro Atlanta's most desired suburb - a progressive enclave of quaint homes, solid restaurants, a walkable downtown, and tight-knit neighborhoods that are very protective of the community they've created. And with ... | more...

Dixie Hills Neighborhood

You don?t have to look hard to find the sense of history in this neighborhood. At the wishbone intersection of Morehouse Drive, Spellman Street, and Morris Brown Avenue in Northwest Atlanta stands the steepled sanctuary of the 82-year-old congregation known as Dixie Hills First Baptist Church. Durin... | more...
