    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!!!

    Atlantic Station

    • Neighborhood in Atlanta, GA
    • 4 reviews
    Current Resident:I live right behind Atlantic Station. There is a shuttle as well as buses that come by from time to time. However, the buses and shuttle don't really stick to the schedule. There are a few restaurants, but they are more touristy than anything a foodie would be interested in. There's a movie theater, so that adds to nightlife but other than that there is one irish pub.

    Niche User:Being on the edge of the Georgia Tech campus, both campus police as well as the Atlanta police are very active and very visible throughout the day and night. This is one of very few places in the city that I would feel comfortable going for a jog at 2am.

    • 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.
