Morningside/Lenox Park Reviews

8
All Categories
Pros:
• Homes are diverse and generally pretty “cool”
• Super close to the heart of the city
• Dense treescape/very pretty
• Neighbors tend to be extremely friendly
• Wonderful restaurants/bars

Cons:
• Roads are a bit cruddy and need to be repaved
• “City parks” in the neighborhood are not taken care of — neighbors have to spend their own time/money landscaping public parks(at least it seems this way)
• Too many car break-ins due to many people parking on the street

Overall, an AMAZING neighborhood. If something could be done about the car break-ins, this would definitey be the coolest neighborhood in Atlanta.

Morningside is an upper-middle-class neighborhood in many ways. It's popular with young professionals and their families because of Morningside Elementary, which has a phenomenal gifted and talented program. Its parks are small and in my experience, everybody is kind and neighborly.
Great established neighborhood in the middle of all activites in Atlanta. Perfect neighborhood for all groups of people. Walk to dining, park, entertainment and nightlife. Beautiful homes and great neighbors.
