HISTORIC SOUTH ATLANTA was forgotten as well. We have a coffee shop, Ron Clark Academy and a great civic league in place.
South Atlanta Civic League
Impressed with the mission and vision and want to visit to see first-hand.

Source for those ridiculous sex trade figures?
I must protest...."Giant Clown" at Burnt Hickory? His name is Scott and he's the owner...oh, the other clown? Atleast no mimes
This is great that they are doing this, but I want to stress that it doesn't take a ministry to turn your life around. YOU have the ability all on your own. I turned my life around with NOTHING. I was challenged to find a way to emerge from the sex industry and make something of my life with no Internet access available back then, no recovery facility, no job training, no transitional housing assistance, no money and no conflict resolution skills that would prepare me for the corporate world. But you know what? I wouldn't trade a million bucks for it, because it taught me to FIGHT for my own survival. I had NOTHING but Jesus to rely on when I was stripped of everything but it changed ME. And you know what? I never went back because I worked hard for it and Jesus was more important to me.

I suggest paying a bit more attention on the tours you attest to not going on. There are a ton of misconceptions in this post.
Is this the Chandras featured in the Diary of an Angry Black Woman?
Seriously? This is the best you could do? Anyone reading this try the Northside Trail of the Beltline. It's the most scenic in that you're following Tanyard Creek virtually the whole way as opposed to the backs of apartments & restaurants like the Eastside Trail.
So happy to have helped this project already meet its goal!
It would be great if Chamblee was more pro business development. As much as Major Clark states he his pro business, Chamblee does not have much to offer. The buildings need to be updated and not so run down, and new business should be welcome. Clark and his council make businesses want to look somewhere else!
I think it is a crime that there was no mention of the BBQ Kitchen on Virginia Avenue. It's the best meat and three in Atlanta !
No mention of Nuevo Laredo? GTFOH!
I live here, and I'm mostly over this neighborhood. We usually end up at Graveyard, although Argosy is worth the trip once in a while. A bakery and froyo place would be appreciated.
EAV needs a bakery. Somebody please open one.
I moved to Brookhaven from Decatur more than ten years ago. I love my house and the services Brookhaven offers. But, compared to the other areas listed in CL's Neighborhood Guide, Brookhaven is a wasteland. This is a pretty pedestrian list, and frankly, I can't argue with it too much because its the best the city has to offer.
chamblee is a thing!
Ugh what, Mike? I've lived here for almost 20 years now, and it's a great part of town. When I was ready to stop renting in Midtown, this was as close in as I could afford to buy at the time. I have never regretted it. Not everyone can afford the 'hip' areas of intown, so you can dropt the attitude.
