I've lived in South Dekalb for a few years, and I'm currently interested in a home near Gresham Park. The zip code is 30316, and it is located in unincorporated Dekalb County. I am single, and female. I'd like to live closer to the city, while being somewhere with a suburban feel.

East Atlanta Village is a little less than three miles from this area, but this is Atlanta and three miles can be very far. Does anyone have any information or history about Gresham Park, and how safety levels compare to South Dekalb suburbs like Lithonia or Ellenwood? Options for shopping? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I live in the opposite end of 30316 (in North Ormewood Park in the city limits). You are right that three miles can make a difference, but if you are already living in S DeKalb I think you will find it comparable but a little better off than other areas of South DeKalb. You will find a wide variety of people from all walks of life in the area, which I love. There are good shopping options on Moreland and I think this will get you the "live closer to the city, while being somewhere with a suburban feel" you are looking for.

G.Park is on the rise some would say but compared to lithonia i like both i lived in the 30038 zipcode for lithonia right of panalo rd by the walmart. Gresham Park is not what it once was when i was growing up in the 90s and 2000s its a better place overall.

I grew up nearby, and even though Gresham Park could use some serious development (mainly the strip malls near I-20 and Bouldercrest), it gives great access to the interstates. However, there have been problems across I-20 from there recently with break-ins and a car-jacking, and suddenly a guy is begging on the eastbound I-20 off-ramp at Gresham Road. No matter where you live, be vigilant. It has improved alot since my childhood, but there are still morons looking to take advantage.
