Most of Dekalb with the exception of Dunwoody, Druid Hills, Tucker, Brookhaven and Decatur
South Cobb, Powder Springs, Lithia Springs, Mableton, Austell, Vinings, Smyrna area
All of Gwinnett beside Duluth and maybe Suwanee

Frankly it's quicker to list the non-ghetto burbs:
North Fulton
Forsyth
East Cobb/Marietta (mostly)
Kennesaw
Peachtree City
Hiram and Dallas
You're clearly not familiar with the area. Wow, troll much?

"Ghetto." The most overused word ever.

Are you confusing Black with ghetto? Because that's what it sounds like you're doing. Justify this statement about North Fayette County. I don't recall any 400k houses in or around Bankhead Courts. Wowowowow

I have avoided posting on the Atlanta forum of this site until today because I have seen people say the most foolish things like how "Forest Park or Stone Mountain are safe and great communities" again great and safe compared to what? Cause it's positively 3rd world compared to where I live now with my son in Garden Hills which isn't even close to the nicest part of Buckhead.

A year ago I was almost tempted to purchase in the area zoned for Forsyth Central, it's beautiful there but my father talked me out of it by saying that at one time even the ghettoiest ghettoes in like College Park were once shiny and new, and if the "demographic history" of suburban Metro Atlanta is any indication of what will happen eventually even Cumming will succumb to "the flood" and become another "ghetto burb". The only places I think are safe are places in North Fulton and North Atlanta, which have concentrations of real wealth and are established and too pricey for Tanqueesha and her 5 fatherless children to get a place with her voucher.
Well, alrighty then...

Wow, now I see what you're really on about.

Your profile says you live in College Park, obviously we have different standards of what a safe neighborhood is. I'm honestly afraid to drive through CP.

I might have a different standard of what ghetto is but year pretty much all of the suburban areas outside Forsyth, North Fulton and East Cobb with a few others I mentioned earlier ARE ghetto to me. Take that however you want. For the record I don't find the black folks in Alpharetta or Milton ghetto, the ones in Lithonia hel.l yes I do.

Uh ... it's FAYETTE COUNTY Danny boy, not FAYETTEVILLE COUNTY. And yes, the North Fayette area is pretty nice. Big homes on large lots, good schools, low crime, minutes from the airport. When you cross the county line from any direction, the landscape changes. Fayette County zoning and development codes are among the strictest in the nation and were created to maintain a pastoral, semi-rural atmosphere. Commercial development is limited to the cities. Home lots are large. Multi-family developments and rental property is discouraged. There are only a handful of apartment complexes. In a nutshell, there is no low-income housing to speak of in Fayette County -- which has the 2nd-highest median household and median family income in the state after Forsyth.

So yeah ... basically you're clueless ... and a bigot. Which makes absolutely perfect sense now that i think on it!

To me, these are the "ghetto burbs".

Clayton County
Parts of DeKalb County(Stone Mountain, Doraville, Chamblee)
South Fulton
Norcross

Another place I would not want to live in right now: Paulding. I currently live there due to economic reasons, but as soon as I save some money, I'm gone, and I don't plan to return there again.

Oh yes, you must silence me so your real estate in Union City or Fayetteville or Stone Mountain will get sold. Easiest way to do that is to call me a racist.

I checked the demographics of Fayette County HS, 35% on subsidized lunch....such a great school!

And no I don't take MARTA except from my area to Midtown or to Decatur, wouldn't ever go that far south I don't wanna die! As for driving in CP to the Airport, I'm not a big flyer but when I do I take a cab and take 285 or 85, wouldn't ever drive on the side streets there. Have you ever seen the opening scene from Snow on the Bluff? I would prefer that not happen to me yeah
