planning to move to atlanta in the next couple of months with my pre school baby, my husband would be working out of town most of the time,so looking for a safe area not too far from grady but ready to compromise on the distance as long as its a safe, family oriented neighbourhood.
know very little about atlanta so dont know where to start my search from, any assistance would be appreciated.preferably a home for rent.thanks

Not knowing what your requirements for a rental are, I would start with the neighborhoods NE of downtown (as these are relatively safe and the most accessible to downtown via Freedom Parkway):

Inman Park
Candler Park
Druid Hills
Virginia Highland
Morningside
Lake Claire
Decatur

The neighborhoods Inman Park, Candler Park, Lake Claire, and the City of Decatur are all on the east-west MARTA line so your husband or you (whoever's working at Grady) can catch a ride there (The Georgia State Station - E1).

It's not a matter of NEEDING public transportation so much as using it because it's way faster/easier than dealing with traffic. If you were to move to any of the neighborhoods I listed then your commute to work would be very fast (to Grady).

But those neighborhoods, besides access to MARTA, are very much full of young families, most if not all are educated. It's a good place to raise kids. I have a son in first grade and we live in Candler Park. We really love living there.
