In Anacostia, South East DC, I saw an Organic Food restaurant and thought I was going crazy.

I never thought Kirkwook, East Atlanta, and East Lake would see the days of gentrification.

Crazy

Aren't those DHA? Those are more project-like. I'm talking about private apartment complexes that accept section 8, like Bedford-Pine along Boulevard.

For example, Old Fourth Ward will never be fully gentrified until Boulevard is leveled.

And the ones that are being referred to in Decatur across from the High School have been torn down (half of them so far) and replaced with town houses because they were mostly empty.

I suppose I live in a gentrified suburb--

-Whole Foods
--Same Sex households

--Social activism

--Diversity of religious/political beliefs and somewhat ethnically diverse--good food of many kinds is not far away

--An area that declined in the 80's and began to redevelop in the 90's--the 'architectural style' is nothing exceptional--if that counts.

--We have some great old trees--I can remember when they were scrawny new trees

/gentrified

Speaking of Oakhurst, the pace of gentrification there would make a good case study. I'd say it's already fully gentrified, eventhough it started around the same time as Kirkwood. I think the fact that it's on the Atlanta side of Decatur (as opposed to the side bordering unincorporated DeKalb) + lots of historic bungalows + has it's own village/downtown started it, but the schools were the tipping point. If you compare Oakhurst with Kirkwood, its immediate neighbor, Oakhurst is way farther ahead.

30329--North Decatur. sniff--I felt left out.

About our only claim to fame is the intersection at North Druid Hills and Briarcliff--one of the busiest/worst by some standards. We have Target, Chick Fil A, QT and a new Walgreens. There are Indian shops in a strip mall beside the Target. At Clairmont and Briarcliff--many Ethiopian restaurants and Moe's pizza---very tasty. There used to be a dairy farm where Loehman's Plaza is now located. It's walkable---that should count for something, right?

30329? I would say so, since it was discovered by gay men a few years ago. The years to come will no doubt see its' increasing densification. It's already started in Executive Park.

Sorry. Not my intention. I didn't know. Never meant it that way. Hope we're cool.
