ATLTJL is on the money.

Atlanta does have the 8th largest Jewish population in the US and 20th in the World at ~120,000, but this will seem minuscule compared to the 1M+ community in NYC.

The majority of the Jewish population in Atlanta is centered in the north metro suburbs. A lot of Jewish families live in Dunwoody and Sandy Springs. There is also a large orthodox community in Toco Hills.

You may have raise your rent budget a little, but I'd say you'd be fine in any of northeast areas from Sandy Springs to Tucker.

OTOH, Yankees have been coming to the Atlanta area for over 100 years and staying, so there must be something good about the place that y'all like ...

Ditto - lived in Larryville for 12 yrs. Rents are super high now b/c of the 2008 foreclosures - ripple effect.

I just consulted the map and it looks like Sandy Springs and Buckhead, while not exactly half way between Lawrenceville and Atlanta, appear to be within a distance I wouldn't mind commuting. However, and this is a follow-up, does it matter traffic wise that this would be a reverse commute? While I'd prefer a 15-20 minute commute, I can do 30 minutes but if 30 minutes is really 1 hour every day then I wouldn't like that.



Thank you! I guess you don't mind us coming down? I ask because I want to be able to make friends haha.
LOL just don't bring a carpetbag.

I would do a test run on the commute between Sandy Springs and L'ville, or Buckhead and L'ville. I-285 can look like a parking lot any time of day.

Others here have mentioned your COL budget and local housing prices.

Duluth is great area. Tons of commercial growth downtown- restaurants, breweries etc.. You are pretty close to I-285 for commuting.
