I used to own a townhome in that neighborhood and one of my best friends lived in that apartment complex. It seemed ok everytime I hung out there. He drove an S2000 and it never got keyed or anything, and there were some other really expensive cars there too. They have garages for rent if you're worried about stuff like that. Sandy Springs is one of my favorite commuter spots in Atl if you don't know where you're working since you are close to all the highways in a central location.

There's also plenty of shopping/restaurants around (what part of Atl doesn't?) and overall it's fairly safe - just make sure you lock your car and house. The thing I don't like about the city is the fact that it has the least amount of green park space per square mile out of any city in the Atlanta metro area. When it was a part of the city of Atlanta, it only received back about 10% of the taxes it paid to Fulton Co. since it's a pretty wealthy area, but was neglected for such a long time by the county. I assume since it broke away and incorporated as a city about 2 years ago, it will only get better.

Sandy Springs, as a whole, is a good area. However, the closer you get to I-285, the worse it gets.

Lightbulb Here's where I would recommend...

In Sandy Springs, apartments are very hit or miss .

My Aunt lived at 550 Abernathy on Abernathy Road. I would recommend their for sure. Her apartment was a townhome and was very cute. Not the newest, but had all the right touches. Location wise, I think hers was better than Harbor Pointe, because to get therem you have to get all the way over to Roswell Road and then up past the rough area. My Aunts place was like 2 lights off of 400 AND it was just the first exit outside of 285. Location could not be beat. Plus her place was right beside the Sandy Springs Tennis Center and I used to take her dog over there for their nature trail. I think, yeah, it's a public park & tennis center, so how cool was that?
