Time to do a little fact-checking, CL. Coan Middle School is not closing. In the final redistricting plan, APS actually pledged an increased investment in Coan over the next decade.

How you gonna leave off Mood's music? That's pretty much the main reason alot of non-hipster folks to ever go to L5P. Stop hating!
Great research and interesting article!

@ Staff, if you all don't visit/live/work or play in the DT area (as evidenced, again by another AJC esque article) ask your readers or don't bother to write about downtown. You all discuss the "usual suspects" for every other neighborhood but Downtown. Why not highlight The Rialto, The Theatrical Outfit, Tabernacle, COP, Stats, World of Coke, Aquarium (even though I've been enough times). My point is instead of deigning on BS issues like the homeless and The Underground. Give the people something accurate to the title of being the "Ultimate Neighorhood Guide."
Also note that Decatur has more than one up-and-coming community gardens! Decatur has truly evolved into a realized haven for new and veteran green thumb-er's, making Decatur a really nice little niche for old-school gardenite's and the like!
(Owner of these comments realizes the presence of unofficial lexicon in this comment... as a DHS graduate I can attest that the school system is culturally and academically well rounded!)
"Downtown...has come a long way from its days as a vertical office park that turned into a ghost town after the sun set." Blatant lie as the first sentence, nice. Thanks for the laugh.
A fascinating point often missed (not just by CL) is how many of those hipsters (and hell, even us normal folk) are settling down there and starting families. Relatively cheap housing (even during the boom), a walkable grid of streets (suitable for pram-pushing), a bevy of kid-friendly restaurants (check out the Holy Taco patio on an early Friday eve), sneaky-good schools (best-kept secret in the system) and a neighborly attitude in general make it a great place to put down some roots. Lest you think you have to give up the lifestyle, however, you can still find yourself a sitter and catch a good show at the EARL... and stagger home to the kids afterwards.
I absolutely love living in Kirkwood, we get the benefit of a small town feel with big city amenities. I am literally walking distance to Oakhurst and the downtown area where Le Petit Marché and The Pullman restaurant have kept me well fed.
This article is right that Kirkwood is not entirely gentrified and I think that's one of its best qualities. I love living in a diverse neighborhood where I have a chef living across the street, a lawyer living next door, and neighbors who've been in Kirkwood since the 70's behind me. This is a neighborhood that embraces diversity instead of fearing it.
Thanks @EPVoter for the EP Possums Drag Show info. That event is so "Loafy". I'm sharing the information with our editors.
I am so grateful to have found East Point! I love living here. I love my home, my neighbors and the proximity to downtown.
I take issue with your assessment that we have the "largest concentration of hipsters in Atlanta". Just because people drink huge amounts of PBR does not make them hipsters. If what you say was true, I would not call the EAV home. They can take their douchey scarves to poncey-highland.
Delia's is in Ormewood.
Panita is great. We lived a block away from there for a few years and it was a good place to go for quality food without having to deal with what I called "the party" -- the loud frat-boy crowd that infects several other nearby spots.
The cool thing about Panita is that often the service would be so bizarrely slow that you'd have to wait a long time for anyone to come take your order even if the room was empty-- that means "the party" would get fed up, walk out and go elsewhere. The committed people would stick around and wait out the weird service. That's how you get rewarded with the awesome food. Totally worth it.
@Clockwise Cat: It's a list of ten things to do, not the Yellow Pages.
"To complicate things, Sweet Auburn actually ends on the west at the interstate -- putting the Curb Market technically in the Downtown neighborhood."
i dunno, i've always thought atlanta's neighborhoods were defined more by psychogeography than linear boundaries
the border between inman park and little five is where the first person hits you up for spare change, you know you're in the highlands when you see someone jogging with a tiny dog, etc.
