Midtown

"Heart of Atlanta"
Midtown is a vibrant neighborhood, alive with the soul of Atlanta. The area is a popular home for students of the nearby Georgia Institute of Technology and Savannah College of Art and Design. It includes easy access to the Atlanta Beltline, which is a connection hub into all of Atlanta’s neighborhoods. Midtown is filled with hotels, high-end retail, high-rise office buildings, and condominiums. It is also filled with extravagant destinations the locals love to visit. The Fox Theatre is an opulent theater built in the 1920s. The Alliance Theatre is another option in the neighborhood, featuring house productions of major plays and acting workshops. There is also the High Museum of Art, home to diverse art collections for culture lovers. Piedmont Park is a perfect place for a little leisure time, with over 185 acres of greenspace, including a community pool and playgrounds.

The neighborhood is a hotspot for street food, fine-dining, shopping, bars, and restaurants. It is filled with great places to eat. South City Kitchen, Murphy’s Restaurant, and The Varsity are all restaurants popular in the area. There are also many bars and cafes to visit. These include The Vortex Bar & Grill, West Egg Cafe, and Eleventh Street Pub.

Midtown is a great place to live. It's central location makes it incredibly easy to visit all of Atlanta's other great neighborhoods. But there is plenty to do in Midtown as well. There is nightlife scene for whatever you like (bars, clubs, etc.). There are also a number of great restaurants and shops and something new is always being added or built. The best part about Midtown though, is its walkability and access to Piedmont park.

Cornerstone Village
I love living in midtown - I can easily access great restaurants, my job, and my friends. Where I live, it is very safe. A few blocks down is a little seedier. I love living right by the park. There are relatively few vagrants. Cons, parking is expensive here. Amenities are kind of sub par. Major pro is no driving! I fill up my car maybe once every 2 months. I don't have to take many cabs. Close to Marta if I need it.

The biggest perk of midtown is the location. It's close to shopping, bars, restaurants and Georgia Tech. It's a great place to be a young professional and meet other people. It still is a little sketchy at times and it's important to be aware of your surroundings and not travel alone late at night.

I love the location of this community. It is directly across from the Arts Center Marta station and has several restaurants that are in walking distance. The Marta station offers a free shuttle to Atlantic Station which is a 5 minute ride to great shopping and dining.

My family and I can walk to work, church, restaurants, parks etc. We love that our children are living in a diverse area.
The only cons for us are the occasional noisy nights (sirens, party goers, etc.) and the fact that there are not a lot of other kids in the area for our kids to play with.

Pros are definitely location, everything you need is in walking distance, the nice appliances. Services and announcement provided by the complex. It definitely feels safe. Great staff.

Cons - its quite noisy, maintaining paid parking spots.

Park Central
The complex is less than several blocks shy of many of Atlanta's top-rated cafes and restaurants. Its also close the the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, so that's very cool. Grocery store is nearby as well. It's a bit of a stretch to walk to the College of Business and further into GA Tech campus (7 blocks or more) but because of the distance not a lot of loud college students come here, so the building is always quiet. That's not to say there's no social scene here, the area surrounding plus the complex's activity room provide fun meet-up spots.

I moved to Midtown in 2013, long after the renaissance that saw a boom in gay men, families, and students living here without fear of being mugged or hassled. Although in recent months there's been an uptick in crime, overall Midtown is a great place to live; one of the most walkable neighborhoods in Atlanta with restaurants, bars, grocery stores, museums, and some retail easily accessible by foot. Served by three MARTA stations and plenty of bus lines, I foresee even better things in Midtown's future if the planned bike lanes and mixed retail/living spaces continue to be built (and are actually affordable, not $1500 for a studio).

Camden Midtown
Midtown is better than it used to be, but still not a paradise of safety and contentment. One of the most (if not the most) walkable areas in Atlanta, there are at least three MARTA stations (North Avenue, Midtown, and Arts Center) to get you into the area, lots of bus lines, and the Eastern Beltline dividing us from ViHi. Great restaurants, some shopping (higher rents are driving a lot of places out), beautiful Piedmont Park - all great things.

Extremely LGBTQ friendly area, especially at the corner of 10th and Piedmont. More skewed towards gay men than lesbians, though.

Crime is something of a rollercoaster - things will seem great for a while and then there'll be a few armed muggings or house robberies and everyone freaks out. Pay attention to your surroundings and don't be afraid to call the police if you feel unsafe! Basic advice for anywhere in the city, really.
