Nothing else cool is going to open until we get the current landlords ousted. They are willing to let places sit completely empty.
If you turn on Broad Street off Peachtree Road, you will find many interesting antique, vintage and unique shops. A great destination to find some wonderful items.
My entire family grew up there and then some elders led us all to flee...but it'd love to come back. Several friends are still there from high school in the 70s. Love this revival.
Thank you for this article! We visited some of the landmarks, my who knew the West End had such treasures. The ongoing revival was breathtaking to take in. The renovation has shown the West End homes for what they truly are - just beautiful, well done restoration - thanks!
HISTORIC SOUTH ATLANTA was forgotten as well. We have a coffee shop, Ron Clark Academy and a great civic league in place.

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.
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.
Literary themed? The Bookhouse is TWIN PEAKS themed. As in the Bookhouse Brothers. You'll link David Lynch to a strip club, but not a place dedicated to his TV shows and films?
You forgot Sylvan Hills, Capitol View, Adie Park and Capitol View Manor.
What a disgrace to Poncey-Highland. It goes to show that CL is completely out of touch with this city. For one they leave out nearly all of the great places in Poncey, including Two Urban Licks, and mention twice the crappy Book House Pub and the nasty soup kitchen... BOTH OF WHICH ARE NOT EVEN IN PONCEY, THEY ARE IN VaHi!!!!!!
CL owes Mr. Brawner and the neighborhood of Poncey-Hi a public apology.
When it came time to move to Atlanta in 2006 because of my job, I had to make a decision of what was most important to me. I decided easy access to MARTA rail, affordable homes, real neighborhoods (not subdivisions trying to be a neighborhood), and easy access to downtown Atlanta were atop my list. East Point (EP) fit that bill. I can take easily take MARTA to work, run to the airport in a jiffy to pick up visitors, and on the weekends easily take advantage of what Atlanta has to offer. In the past 2-3 years many, MANY Facebook groups have been established that focus on EP (and the whole Tri-cities area). This has only helped grow the sense of community that exists not only in the individual neighborhoods but in the city as a whole. Plus, EP puts on one of the BEST 4th of July Celebrations in the metro area.
Lived there for 6 years. CL keep polishing that turd, and maybe "change" will finally come! God, I wish it would!!!
