Harris Chiles takes its name from two public housing projects that once anchored the community. Harris Homes, built in 1956, was demolished as part of the city’s plan to replace low-income developments with mixed-income complexes. It’s now the site of Ashley CollegeTown Apartments, where “life is a journey full of everyday adventures.” The neighborhood’s other namesake survived the scrub and... | more...

When former Atlanta construction magnate Herman J. Russell’s 1963 ranch home hit the market earlier this year for close to half a million dollars, it symbolized the hidden cultural riches of Collier Heights.

A hilly residential enclave in the shadow of Buckhead’s towering skyscrapers, Garden Hills offers a schmancy suburban-style experience minus the trip OTP. Many of the current homes for sale hover around the $1 million mark.

Greenbriar abuts I-285’s western edge at Arthur B. Langford Jr. Parkway.

You can tell Horseshoe is almost OTP by the sheer amount of greenery present. Nestled between Cascade Road, I-285, and the historic Cascade Heights neighborhood, the horseshoe-shaped subdivision in southwest Atlanta is easy to miss.

Tiny Oakland is bound by MARTA’s east-west rail line to the north, Martin Luther King Jr. Drive to the south, Grant Street to the east, and the Downtown Connector to the west. Oakland does not contain the famous landmark with which it shares a name. Atlanta’s Oakland Cemetery is situated one block east. But Oakland is home to a newer landmark, the 300-foot Corey smokestack, whose digital... | more...

Situated between Buckhead and Bankhead, Underwood Hills is within spitting distance of I-75. Though established in 1902, when it was called Northside Park, the neighborhood didn’t begin to thrive until the ’20s, when many residents worked for the nearby Seaboard Coastline Railroad. Today, Underwood Hills is a close-knit community of families who gather at the popular Underwood Park for its... | more...
