I have lived in O4W for over a year. I love the neighborhood. We have close access to the Beltline, shops, and restaurants. We can easily access 75/85 while it still feeling like a residential area. Overall, it's a safe neighborhood but we are located in an urban area.

It's a college campus, so the community is, at the same time, like minded and at odds with each other. We all hold similar interests, but how we go about pursuing them and what we think of different paths vary greatly, as well as opinions in general. There are a lot of Georgians in the area, a lot of international students, but not many out-of-state students, which is understandable considering it's a public university.
I love being able to bike and walk everywhere. I love the beltline, the bike paths, and all the public art. Some of the roads need to be fixed up and there is quite a bit of construction going on in this area. Its developing rapidly.
