Neighborhoods - Lakewood Heights

Lakewood Heights is tucked away between the Downtown Connector and Chosewood Park. The once thriving Southside neighborhood has been in a state of decline since the Lakewood Assembly General Motors factory closed in 1990. Recently, it’s become fertile terrain for DIY operations looking to build a community. Carver Neighborhood Market and Community Grounds Coffee shop serve as neighborhood-meeting points. Folk artist Lonnie Holley lives further down Jonesboro Road. Across from his studio stands the Cleaners, a dry cleaning business-cum-experimental music and performance venue. For real local flavor, Ideal Sports Bar’s Friday night karaoke sessions are the place to hear tales about Lakewood Speedway, where Aaron’s Amphitheatre now stands. — Chad Radford
