Home Park Reviews
The area known as "Home Park," a little neighborhood on the outskirts of the Georgia Tech campus, has easy access to several local areas of interest, including many of the popular college bars, along with Atlantic Station, a 'higher-end' area with boutiques, entertainment and a few elegant restaurants, along with a couple of the standard chicken or pizza places. Also nearby is Howell Mill, pretty much a one-stop shopping complex containing variety of businesses in the mid to low price ranges, including Ross, TJ Maxx, Ulta, Walmart and Kroger, as well as restaurants such as La Parilla and Chipotle, along with several fast food joints. While mostly chain dominated, there are also a few smaller, independently owned shops and sit-down restaurants in the area as well.
I have had a generally positive experience in Home Park. I like how cheap the rent is and how convenient it is being in the heart of midtown Atlanta. The quality of the houses that I've lived in here could be improved but the conditions are to be expected with such cheap rent. The thing that I would like to see improve the most is security or the sense of safety.
Depending on your level of education/experience, there are plenty of jobs available in the immediate area, most of which can be accessed by walking or using public transportation. Being only about 6 miles outside of downtown Atlanta, there are a variety of businesses for a variety of people in the immediate area. For college kids living in the Home Park area, there are plenty of part time and full time opportunities within walking distance. Internships, temp work, as well as jobs in upcoming IT companies, all of them are possible, though the most job opportunities are most likely in schools (there are several universities in the area), finance, or retail.
