For Atlanta renters looking for basic places to stay for a year or two, reasonably affordable apartments still exist in primo locations. And now, the same applies to renters looking for swinging '60s retro panache, baby! Buried in Inman Park, among the ancient oaks and spectacular Victorians, an easy stroll from the Beltline and Krog Street Market, we find this Craigslist specialty at Inman Court, a midcentury community of 28 units. The retro vibe is random, to say the least, but the $945 rent gets two bedrooms, one bath and 750 square feet. For context, a much smaller 545-square-foot, one-bedroom unit down the street at Inman Quarter costs nearly $400 more per month, though that includes a balcony and top-shelf amenities. That's not how Inman Court rolls. Instead of sky lounges, pet spas and communal fire pits, the amenities at the I.C. are strictly utilitarian — "on-site laundry," "off-street parking" and "pet friendly," for example. So, like all things, it's a matter of priorities.
