I'm about to become a transplant due to job relocation. Not familiar with ATL or the metro area. Can anyone please tell me the areas to avoid moving to.

Thanks.: confused:

The more important point is to figure out which areas to focus on moving to, and that's going to depend greatly on the location of your new job. The Atlanta metro area is very large, and very traffic-filled- unless you enjoy the thought of 2-hour commutes, let us know where you'll be working and maybe we can help.

Some info on your housing needs and budget would be very helpful as well.

Agree with Bob in that there are good and not-so-good areas all over Atlanta, so it's kind of hard to say definitely do not live in any general area. Used to be, you could say this about some areas, but with the gentrification of lower-income areas, you can now find pockets of refurbished, nice areas within traditionally crime-ridden areas. Commute will be a MAJOR factor for you, b/c the infrastructure of Atlanta is so bass-ackwards from most major cities that a poorly researched commute decision could lead to hours or time and tons of unnecessary stress. Of course, budgetary constraints are also important.
