Lover of Atlanta, dogs, wine, rap music, and politics. Owner of a mid-century ranch in the city. Living the dream. :)
Just to clarify: that area (30339) does have an Atlanta mailing address, but is not located within the city limits of Atlanta. It's unincorporated Cobb County, which has been branded as "Cumberland." Therefore, Atlanta will get no tax money from this.
Good work, CL! As a lover of the less-celebrated parts of Atl, I am happy to hear this!
Funny... my neighbors never get in brawls (in fact, they wave and say hello), my dead-end street is so quiet at night you'd think you were OTP, and my neighborhood is clean with no boarded up houses. Clearly you haven't been to my part of SW Atlanta.
We do go to other neighborhoods for restaurants and such a lot of the time, but we're just a short drive or MARTA ride from plenty of good places.
I am not sure what I'll do when we have kids, because most of the schools in Atlanta ARE deplorable (and that extends outside of the SW quadrant). For now though, I enjoy my little oasis in the city, and I'm pretty sure my neighbors do, too.
^^^Part of the reason it's great is that the d-bags who permeate the rest of the city are too scared to come here. And I will continue to let them think that way, lest they ruin my neighborhood.
Just another reason life is great in SW Atlanta... untouched (according to the above map) by Fuqua.
What a Dick.
As a white person, I am over here rolling my eyes at the woman who thinks white people's rights are "going down the tube." I don't even know where to begin.
