Sylvan Hills Reviews

All Categories
Sylvan Hills is a great area South West of Atlanta. It is close to all highways and the beltline. It is also however full of crime and greatly overlooked by the local government. The roads are full of potholes and will damage your car. The houses are over priced because the beltline is being extended to the area.

Cars are broken into, stolen, and damaged in this area. It hapened to me more than 15 times within a year. The area has security guards walking around but that doesnt help
Very convient transportation. Crime rates are not so good
