Darin: O4W is bigger than you think it is, roughly Ponce to Dekalb Ave and Peachtree to the East Side Trail.
Pretty sure whoever wrote that comment:
1. Hasn't ever read a newspaper
2. Doesn't know that journalists write stories based on interviews with other people, not their own experience.
I grew up in cabbagetown I am now 28 years old but I also was told the story of the truck flipping over and everyone cooked cabbage that night and it lingered for days that's the story most if us were told but growing up in cabbagetown we were all family and everyone helped everyone it was by far the best place to grow up!!!!!!!
Ansley Park is my most fav.
Pretty sure, whoever wrote this article:
1. Isn't from Atlanta
2. Don't know what weird means.
It's a horrible article that quotes more of what other writer's have written then of their own experience.
I spent 15 years of my life in L5P...I go back now and its a tourist trap...sure, much of the eccentricities abound, but in a much more corporate, and thus, unoriginal manner...living just up Euclid was one of the best times in my life--now, I probably couldn't afford to stay more than a week. Thus is change--'progress' is relative, but I do miss it and am saddened others without much funding will have somewhere like this to experience--but I'm sure newer, less costly bohemian places are sprouting up around the ATL, I hope...
7:45PM in October facing the open windows at the Earl in the high stools as the heat finally starts to give way to cooler nights....with beer and a whiskey.
He didn't read it before judging you, so typical. I applaud you for practicing sustainable living gardening to provide healthy produce. Gentrification is destroying neighborhoods all across the country and the developers don't care who is displaced.
I own my home, it says "mortgage," not "rent." Thank God I was able to buy intown in this market.
Have a good one!
You are to be Co mended, for that article! Wish I, had the knowledge to present such. Keep it up!
Great article, Mr. Wheatley,
@ L5P is sacred - It's a little late for that, no?
Not to sound too petulant, but the reference to Edgewood is somewhat misleading. The former city of Edgewood still proudly exists as a neighborhood, but doesn't get its propers! Both Lake Claire and Candler Park owe their origins to the existing Edgewood neighborhood.
Hey @Cabal23 - There are more than 240 neighborhoods in the city - our goal is to have all of them included over the course of the next couple of neighborhood issues. We're working toward it! Keep an eye out for Benteen Park in the future.
@chillax - Castleberry Hill is covered extensively in our Atlanta City Guide, which is linked in the intro to this story. This feature is intended to highlight some of the lesser known places around Atlanta. Here's a direct link to Castleberry Hill for you: http://clatl.com/atlanta/CityGuide?guide=c…

Hampton-Beecher Park with the Lionel Hampton Trail and the SW BeltLine Connector Trail.
was there for the first time ever a few weeks ago to see Mark Farner in concert. i was very impressed with the area
No mention of Sevananda Food Cooperative, one of the earliest anchor businesses in L5P (circa '75). Otherwise, a pretty comprehensive retrospective. Thanks for the memories, from one who was there.
I will leave Atlanta if L5P becomes a magnet for chains. It already scares me the chains that have moved in and around it.
This is wonderful. But we need also programs like this to help the homeless.
