Atlanta has downtown African-American urban crime, suburban Hispanic/Asian gang crime, and in outlying areas "Deliverance" redneck/hillbilly crime. If you move to Atlanta, just use basic common sense - alarms, locks, a dog, don't flash cash, don't jog in remote wooded areas, don't gas up in sketchy areas, use the ATM during the day, don't leave anything of any value visible in your car, etc.

However, Atlanta does have a lot to offer, a lot of amenities, sports teams, shopping, and a lot of excitement. We miss Ikea. We miss the Varsity. We miss Bass Pro Shop. We miss the availability of the Aquarium, the High Museum, and the World of Coke. We miss NASCAR races. We even miss seeing the rappers and athletes in Bentleys and Aston-Martins. We would move back to Atlanta in a heartbeat.

But someone IM me this question. Does ATL have 2 different Hood Sections that are connected, are the same but different? You know how Harlem and Bronx are the same but different and BK and QB are connected.
Atlanta's Projects are freaking million dollar condos compared to QB and other NY projects. Its not even close.

LOL! Such drama! You make Atlanta sound like the beginning of a Batman comic.
Not a Star Wars fan?

LOL! In the same area you have a decent wine shop and the most ghetto Family Dollar one block down.

Actually, you got it completely backwards. In the North Atlanta area, your less likely to be shot. More transactions take place. Down in S. Atlanta, your more likely to be shot. More transactions take place. Yes they do have their differences I've noticed growing up.
