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 the area is home to a newer landmark, the 300-foot Corey smokestack, with its digital billboard that often reflects the season or current events. In December, ?Merry Christmas? can be seen illuminated on the stack. Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.?s visage is visible on MLK Day, and, when Prince died, his image was displayed in all its purple glory.
