From its skyscrapers housing national and international business headquarters to the apartment views with citywide views from their rooftop pools, no part of the city has evolved more dramatically over the past two decades than Midtown, once a funky, seedy hippie and gay epicenter. The High Museum of Art, the Fox Theater, restaurants, bars, and comedy clubs, are all within walking distance, and art institutions like the High, Savannah College of Art and Design-Atlanta, and the newly relocated Museum of Design Atlanta are all anchored in the neighborhood. The one-time home to Margaret Mitchell, on Peachtree Street between 9th and 10th streets, still draws a large crowd of tourists and visitors daily. Midtown also offers Piedmont Park, another Olmstead brothers project ? you'll want to take a photo at the eastern edge of Lake Clara Meer, with the trees framing the office towers of Midtown behind them, if only because everybody does.
