Fodor's Review

This earthy outpost of edgy-cool shops, restaurants, bars, and concert venues started growing, beginning in 1996, thanks to a group of proprietors with dreams much bigger than their bank accounts. Spurning the high rents of fancier parts of town, they set up businesses in this then-blighted but beautiful ruin of a neighborhood 4 mi southeast of Downtown. Soon artists and others came to soak up the creative atmosphere. East Atlanta, which is centered at Flat Shoals and

Glenwood avenues, just southeast of Moreland Avenue at Interstate 20, has had its ups and downs, but after new streetscapes were installed in 2005, it experienced a resurgence. Many of the majestic homes have been renovated, and what remains unrestored seems to romanticize the area's gritty appeal.
