Ok then.

1. Midtown
2. Old Fourth Ward
3. Lindbergh Center
4. Inman Park

Thanks for the advice so far. I have seen some apartments in Midtown for $1200-1300.

I'll be pretty new to this city living, I'm a small town girl. Not sure how I feel about it yet lol

Beware!! If you move to Midtown you are going to love it. You are going to be like "damn why didnt I do this years ago"

$1200 in Midtown will get you a poverty apartment. If you want a reasonable quality of life, not surrounded by a ghetto element, you'll likely need $1800+. But then again, some people like that environment. I don't. I hope this helps. You should think safety first.

You can rent in Reynoldstown or Cabbagetown for your budget. Crime is low, it's right on the BeltLine, and it's 10-15 minutes to downtown without having to get on the freeways. Parts are accessible by MARTA (Reynoldstown) or the Streetcar (Cabbagetown). I moved here from a small town and love it; it's a tight knit, quiet neighborhood in the middle of the city.

There are plenty of other people who are just like you that moved to Midtown. It is convenient to everything and allows you the option to take MARTA downtown to work. There are great networks of YP in Midtown for you to find like minded people.

That's completely untrue. Again, the newest apartment complex in Midtown, 131 Ponce, has 1BR apartments starting out at that price. They aren't very big, but it's laughable to call them "poverty apartments."

To take anyone seriously that signs off on a freaking Internet message board with "DMG out" is laughable. Douchebaggery abounds with this one.
