Brookhaven

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 line of cityhood movements around the metro Atlanta area. Dresden Drive, where once only a Stop N? Go provided basic necessities for the small, close-knit neighborhood, is now home to wine bars, restaurants, bistros, and boutiques ? most within walking distance of each other. Expansive homes and condos have been overtaking the ample lots of the old Brookhaven since gentrification began in the early ?90s. Across Peachtree Road to the west is Town Brookhaven, a rapidly developing enclave of local boutiques, bars, businesses, and luxury apartments anchored by a Costco and Publix, flanked by the new Brookhaven City Hall. A few blocks south is the centrally-located, dog-friendly Brookhaven Park, with playgrounds and a picnic area, close to a number of important locations, including Oglethorpe University and the Brookhaven/Oglethorpe MARTA station.
