About

Those ubiquitous EAV stickers you see on cars all over town represent neighborhood pride unmatched by any neighborhood inside the Perimeter. East Atlanta is a diverse, friendly neighborhood with traditional neighborhood charm. Come see why the Washington Post calls us the best kept secret in Atlanta, the Creative Loafing calls us the the epitome of cool and a neighborhood’s neighborhood, too., and the New York Times says our neighborhood is reaching the crest in what has been a steadily rising wave of cool.
