I agree

Clayton will never be like it used to be, and if this myth of a "war zone" is perpetuated it will continue to have the same false reputation.

There are lots of beautiful areas ITP on the southside of Atlanta. Grant Park for one...they definitely aren't all bad.
I live in Clayton (Fayetteville) and spend a sizeable amount of time in the College Park/Riverdale/North Clayton Area and I have to say its not really a nice place. Not the worst on earth and certainly not as bad as East Point/SWATs but not what I would call nice.

I do, however, agree that the Grant Park are is very nice. and surrounding areas (like Reynoldstown) are also ok.

My opinion with Atlanta is that the further south you go, the less cursory living decisions become.

I'm surprised no one mentioned the Camp Creek/Campbelton Rd area . It's more residential than anything, but still a nice option close enough to the city.

I've visited the area a few times with my realtor, have friends in the area, and the area looks ok to me. Plus, you're minutes from both 285 and I-20.

Thanks guys Ill look into Historic EP and CP. I was looking at Hapeville and it seems like there isnt much there. I looked on apartment reviews and its seems like everyone has negative things to say. I was gonna check out oxford ashbury park, although form the website it seems like they just built it or are in the process. I checked out Grant Park, but map quest says its 45 mins from newnan. It seems like in that case I might as well go another 5 mins and live downtown

Yes, it is a very nice area--but I think for young-somethings, Historic CP or EP are best.

Yep. My wife has some friends that live in a beautiful and pretty huge mini mansion on a street that runs off of Camp Creek. The husband of the couple said it was in unincorporated Fulton County.
