Okay, real talk.
In the not-too distant past, we thought we’d read somewhere that Atlanta’s famed, funky Little Five Points district was officially founded in 1918.
This photo essay was supposed to serve as a visual paean to that historic occasion. (The centennial! Hurray!) It turns out, however, that L5P sort of crept up organically in the 1920s, around the streets where trolleys once converged.
So there is no relevant occasion.
But in the true spirit of L5P, we were like f**k it, let’s put the photos out there anyway. Because ... it’s hot outside! In February!
So, perhaps fittingly, this latest installment of Visual Journeys is a celebration of Atlanta’s hippest paradise of street art and novelty shops—home to the world’s wildest Halloween parade—for no specific reason at all.
Now it’s time to wander neighboring blocks to see what’s changing—and what isn’t—on the walkable-to-L5P residential front.
