    Lindbergh/Morosgo

    • Neighborhood in Atlanta, GA
    • 5 reviews
    Niche User:I enjoy living in the neighborhood I live in. The crime rate is relatively low compared with the rest of the Atlanta area. There are many outdoor areas that I enjoy on a regular basis, including great trails and parks that are close by. There are also a lot of new apartment complexes being built in the immediate area. The neighborhood in which I live is close to everything that I enjoy (shopping, restaurants, entertainment, etc.) I would love to live in this area for a long while and eventually purchase a house.

    Buckhead Village

    • Neighborhood in Atlanta, GA
    • 1 review
    Current Resident:Buckhead continues to grow year in and year out. The relatively new "Shops at Buckhead Atlanta" brings a fun atmosphere to the city and provides new opportunities for shopping and dining. There also seems to be a brand new apartment complex being developed on nearly every corner, so there is no shortage of living space. My biggest complaint would be public transportation. Buckhead traffic is a nightmare that all residents share.

    Works Here:Midtown Atlanta is surely the pulse of the city! With immediate access to top ranked public schools, dining, shopping and nightlife it makes for a very walkable neighborhood. Diversity and culture are eminent! The fabulous Fox Theater, Piedmont Park (Central Park of the South), Atlanta Botanical Gardens and Peachtree St. all call Midtown Atlanta Home. Midtown has a little but of everything for everyone, single family homes, luxurious high rise condos and rentals to quaint and affordable vintage charmers to claim as home! Home many large employers an just a second away from CNN and the new Mercedes Benz Stadium it's a professional or recreational commuters' life saver!!!
