Architectural Heritage of Neglected and Preserved Neighborhoods on East End

Atlanta’s East End is on the west side of the I-85 portion going thrown the downtown area. The closer we are to the highway, the more neglected neighborhoods are but despite their condition, we can still notice the presence of strong architectural bones left by past periods of prosperity when buildings were built to last and please the eye. Further west, where we find the Fourth Ward district, we see the fruits of historical preservation with the beautiful homes of the past being restored, with local businesses contributing to a sense of place, and buildings protected with the memory of Martin Luther King.

The album posted here start with buildings in the Fourth Ward district and ends with images from the neighborhoods close to I-85 where we can also find an urban garden and with it, optimism.
