West End didn't just win the 2015 Curbed Cup trophy — the historic neighborhood west of downtown steamrolled its way to glory, scoring a No. 1 seed and more collective votes than any neighborhood in Atlanta history. That honor entails lasting benefits, like this latest installment of Curbed's "Visual Journeys" series.
The Beltline's under-construction Westside Trail has only exacerbated enthusiasm for West End, which traces back to an 1830s frontier outpost, is named for London's theatre district, and is justifiably listed on the National Register of Historic Places. With springtime exploding across Atlanta, it seemed an opportune time to take a quick floral/architectural photo tour of the city's reigning "Neighborhood of the Year." Don't mind the pollen.
