Atlanta - East Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Georgia
A diverse and lively community, East Atlanta was named as one of the top 10 emerging big city neighborhoods in the country, featuring both architecturally historic areas and fresh new developments. Since the founding of the East Atlanta Community Association in 1981, local residents have worked diligently to revitalize the area, preserving the small-town atmosphere amidst the merge of old and new ideals. Among the changes: homes and commercial buildings have been carefully cleaned and restored to their original value; an eclectic collection of nightclubs, restaurants and theaters draws young professionals and artists of all varieties, while older residents have taken pride in calling this private neighborhood home all of their lives.
