Atlanta offers residents the comforts of Southern hospitality with the intrigue of cutting-edge entertainment and award-winning dining. It is a city pulsating with daily cultural events, seasonal beauty, and communities that are warm and inviting.
The Old Fourth Ward, often abbreviated The Fourth Ward or O4W, is a neighborhood just east of Downtown Atlanta, Georgia. During the height of the civil rights movement, the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood of Atlanta, where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born, lived and is buried , was a bustling hub of middle-class black life. Now, the neighborhood is generating buzz again - as a cradle of culinary and artistic innovation and as a symbol of gentrification, with a more racially mixed population. Edgewood Avenue, which connects the Old Fourth Ward to downtown and Inman Park, has become a bar and restaurant district. Bar- and restaurant-owners are attracted to Edgewood's "non-corporate" feel, mostly due to its urban layout and historic buildings showcasing turn-of-the-century architecture.
