The next hot Atlanta neighborhoods. Eight friendly, walkable places where you can still afford to live.
These skate sessions have been one of the biggest social events in the Adamsville and Oakcliff areas since the rink opened in 2000. Stars like Bow Wow, Usher, and Jermaine Dupri skate here, and the 2006 movie ATL was largely filmed inside Cascade.
Apples in Stereo’s Robert Schneider gave up a flourishing music career to chase his true passion: Math
Robert Schneider was the lead singer for his band, Apples in Stereo, and cofounder of Elephant 6 Recording Co., the Athens-based creative force behind the band Neutral Milk Hotel. Now, instead of pursuing the mysticism of music, he’s pursuing something that’s intrinsically mysterious and fundamentally human to him: mathematics.
Georgia lawmakers have been accused of moving the goal posts so their party can stay in power. Could an independent set of mapmakers put an end to the process? Or must the courts decide?
Kid Koala at Georgia Tech, the Hawks take on LeBron James and the Cavs, and the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s inaugural flower show
Civil War bullets. Wooden dice. Glass bottles of a then novel elixir called Coca-Cola. The Phoenix Project is researching the stories behind the approximately 100,000 pieces of trash, trinkets, and treasure that fill roughly 400 bankers boxes in Georgia State University’s Kell Hall.
Jason Isbell returns to the Fox Theatre for back-to-back shows in February with his band, the 400 Unit. The group will be pushing its latest album, The Nashville Sound, which might pack a few surprises for longtime fans of this soft-spoken Southern balladeer and former Drive-By Truckers guitarist.
A university-trained artist and occasional graffiti writer, Michi Meko built his early career on good humor and good times at rollicking, quirky opening parties. Now, his work has had a dramatic shift in his tone—focusing on “the contemporary experience of black life and survival.”
Deep End serves up Tex-Mex flavors, Rose + Rye’s turns Midtown’s Castle into a restaurant, and Bar Americano offers a casual Italian-American atmosphere.
I have lived in the United States for decades, but the monumental size of everything still shocks me. The Frenchwoman in me yearns for reasonable dimensions: skinny baguettes rather than ones as fat as my arm; one-bite chocolate bonbons making up in intensity what they lack in bulk.
If you were to cram the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s into a blender, you’d end up with something close to this self-styled “diners club.” Golden Eagle shouldn’t be taken too seriously as a restaurant, but it’s also more than a nostalgia-themed hot spot appealing to millennials’ love of vintage.
I attended more than a dozen weddings last year. When each couple was inevitably asked how they met, the answer, 50 percent of the time, was Tinder. So, if you’re looking for love this Valentine’s Day, you might just find it there—or at least you can find a hot person to drink with.
Since Jaycina Almond, 22, and Sienna Brown, 23, met in October 2016, they haven’t spent more than two weeks apart. In fact, the friends make dinner together about four times a week.
Atlanta-based company the Honey Pot has garnered attention from the likes of Vogue and Marie Claire for disrupting the feminine care industry with its plant-based, chemical-free, environmentally friendly wipes, washes, and pads. Beatrice Feliu-Espada launched the company in 2014 after struggling to find suitable products in the feminine care aisle.
With André 3000 + Tretorn, Reebok x Future, and Cherokee County’s new Adidas “Speedfactory,” Atlanta is marking itself as a force for stylish footwear.

The Druid Hills house where interior designer Susan Ferrier lives with her husband, Adrian, was described in her new book as a “portrait of an artist and a bit of a sorceress’s cave.”
Photographer David Zeiger started work on a documentary about Doraville, which became PBS’s Displaced in the New South, and discovered the diverse Doraville Boxing Club tucked away in a strip mall. “In the gym, you learn to respect each other—otherwise you’re gonna get your ass kicked,” says Cesar, the boxer photographed “Over here, we don’t look at color. We don’t look at race. We learn to respect each other with these gloves.”
My neighborhood has a walkability score of zero. At least, this is how we’re evaluated by Walk Score, a rating service that asserts “walkable neighborhoods are one of the simplest and best solutions for the environment, our health, and our economy.” Now, I don’t disagree with its premise. I just disagree with the currently accepted definition of walkable.
