Grant Park is a beautiful neighborhood near downtown Atlanta, located around the eponymous park. It is heavily wooded, leaving many trees up for a wonderful natural aesthetic (as well as some much welcome shade in the hotter days of Summer). There are a number of fantastic festivals in both the Summer and Winter, as well as a weekly farmer's market. The neighbors are friendly and it's a pleasant area to bike or walk through. My only real complaint with this neighborhood right now is that the local government just cut down a good number of trees in the park to make room for a parking deck, despite the protestations from those who live here. This decision has not only hurt the environment but the beauty of the neighborhood as well.

it a great area for a family and kids to go outside and play.Our country’s first black head of state has already, of course, come alive on the pages of his own books, as well as in a growing cottage industry of unauthorized portraits, from the paranoid to the all-but-­exhilarated. But another, perhaps higher, test of any cultural figure’s staying power is how well he fares in the realm of the purely or partly imaginative. “Grant Park,” the third novel from the Pulitzer Prize-winning, nationally syndicated Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts Jr., might be best understood as an early salvo in the effort to encase Barack Obama in the amber of lasting literature.

The president isn’t the only icon Pitts attempts to make real. The action in “Grant Park” is split between two outsize moments in the history of American race relations, a clean 40 years apart.
I have lived in Grant Park my entire life and find the community to be extremely diverse and nice. Though I had to go to private school for high school because the public schools are no good in the area.
