Atlanta Neighborhoods

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...

Buford Highway Neighborhood
