Poncey-Highland — 8.6/10 Rating (based on 5 neighborhood reviews)
This is the sole neighborhood I would live in if I were moving to Atlanta again - Virginia Highlands, and specifically Poncey Highlands, is central to everything and very accessible from most other parts of the city. A lot is walkable, and if not, a short Uber/drive away. Great bars and restaurants that many classmates end up finding themselves at on weekends, saving a lot of time and money commuting. It is a short drive to campus, and also a very safe neighborhood. There is also a Publix literally across the street from the building.

Not as walkable as Midtown, but the beltline and lots of new development makes restaurants, shops, recreation and work more accessible than many other neighborhoods.

This neighborhood is the best place to live in and around Atlanta. If you're a chill down to earth individual that loves equally minded people this is the place for you. Incredible places to eat, some literally outside your front door. You will only regret not moving here sooner. This is the place to hang out, and due to this it is also very safe, because the streets are always crowded.
