Neighborhoods
The “village” part of this neighborhood’s moniker (aka EAV) isn’t just a cutesy realtor-invented label. This diverse, walkable pocket of the city exudes a small-town feel while boasting distinctly urban offerings, from hipster-filled tattoo parlors and late-night bars to flower shops. Says Quynh “Q” Trinh, the woman behind neighborhood banh mi joint We Suki Suki and the Global Grub Collective, a mini international food hall and restaurant incubator: “When you come to businesses here, you actually meet the owners.”

Atlanta BeltLine. Edgewood Avenue. Old Fourth Ward Skate Park. There’s so much going on in this neighborhood, we don’t know where to start. Old Fourth Ward has emerged as one of the hippest neighborhoods in Atlanta in just a few short years. It is a historic neighborhood in Atlanta. Located just east of downtown, in an area originally settled in the early 1800s, Old Fourth Ward (OFW – look for this sticker sported on the cars of proud residents!) is the birthplace of America’s best-known civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
