Yeah, we all know that Midtown isn't "loud". I for one would live in either neighborhood, but Castleberry Hill is very unique. There is an entirely different scene going on there. And I don't think Castleberry Hill is going to lose any favor except with those that tuck their shirts into their dockers on the weekends.

I will say that comparing Midtown and Castleberry Hill in my opinion is like comparing apples and oranges. I like both. You can do more with apples like bake a pie or strudel, but I still prefer oranges.

Thanks in advance.
Too bad....(1) I'm fairly happily married (because nobody is ALWAYS happily married), and (2) I'm prolly a decade older than you...because I'm fit and like a good nightcap.

I like this buildings in Castleberry Hill better but after living in midtown for 4 yrs I'd say midtown is the spot to be.

If you do not want thumping bass rattling your windows DO NOT move to Castleberry Hill. I imagine you would go crazy on the weekend. Not to say you won't hear this in Midtown, but that area's much more spread out and there's much more area in which to minimize that kind of noise.

Midtown.

But you should also take a look at the Howell Mill/10th St area. Which a lot of people seem to think is part of Midtown.

That area is commonly referred to as West Midtown.

There are few things in this city that will impress a woman more than a Castleberry Hill Loft. Also, Castleberry is much more compressed and therefore the neighbors are more cohesive. The Midtown neighborhood association is more of a machine (an effective one to be sure) while the Castleberry one is more lively and organic.

If you want to live the Sex and the City / Alfie life, Midtown is your place. If you want a truly unique home within a tightly knitted neighborhood I would take CH all day. I sent you a message regarding how you can get much better information on the area.

Yeah, along with the industrial areas that seemingly go all the way to the end of Chattahoochee Ave.

It's just funny to hear the name Midtown thrown around so much in the world of realtors. West Midtown is a bit of a misnomer imo--it's not the neighborhood directly west of Midtown, after all; that would be Home Park. On the eastern flank, I've heard Ralph McGill get called Midtown, which is just ridiculous.

Real Estate names for nicer and trendy areas get so expansive that I just refer to streets a lot of the time.

I might post a separate thread on this, but as a resident of this part of town, I'm so darn confused about what to call it at this point. West Midtown? Midtown West? Westside?

Isn't Home Park part of West Midtown? Or is it its own place?
