About a mile directly south of Little 5 Points and about 3 miles east of downtown, East Atlanta is proud of its stack of “Best of” honors from Creative Loafing magazine. The neighborhood has also been recognized in both the New York Times and the Washington Post! The summary? East Atlanta is “cool”. Its Village attracts an eclectic group of artists and musicians, and their shops and shows, as well as those who consider themselves “down to earth”. With all of the close-by amenities and downtown attractions – including many sporting venues – East Atlantans make are serious about using alternative forms of transportation, including easily accessible MARTA services.
Similar to its neighbors, like Ormewood Park and Kirkwood, East Atlanta is a hot real estate market with some of the best values around. Early to mid-1900’s homes styles include Victorian, Craftsman, and postwar while renovations, new construction, and multi-family housing also abound.
In addition to the hub-bub of East Atlanta Village (and its 3-times/week farmers market), the neighborhood has several other amenities: a park with a newly-renovated recreation center (and computer lab) and the East Atlanta Branch Library are within its borders, while Grant Park, Zoo Atlanta, the East Lake YMCA, and the Warren/Holyfield Boys and Girls Club are super close.
If you want culture, cool, and community all wrapped into one, East Atlanta should definitely be at the top of your list.
