Neighborhoods - East Lake

East Lake is full of historical significance. When Asa Candler wasn’t busy building a soft drink empire, he was purchasing a vast stretch of land that now encompasses East Lake Golf Club, which acted as Bobby Jones’ home course, now ranked among the best golf courses in the world. Formerly nicknamed “Little Vietnam” for its high crime rate, the neighborhood has undergone a radical transformation in recent decades. Much of that turnaround can be attributed to Tom Cousins and other corporate philanthropists who pumped money into and advocated for the area, and the now highly sought-after Charles Drew Charter School. — Emily Griffin
