I'll be moving to Atlanta soon and am looking for a recommendation in terms of which of these 2 areas is the better to live in and rent an apartment.

I'm interested in hearing your answers from your perspectives (as opposed to flooding you with mine).

Please be sure to provide some commentary to your answers. Thank you for your help.

Guessing here--Sandy Springs or Druid Hills?
Sandy Springs is an affluent suburb north of Atlanta--near the Perimeter Mall/Dunwoody area.

Druid Hills is near Emory University--many historic homes--very expensive and very convenient to downtown. Professionals --medicine, law and academia and related fields.

Do you also need/want FYI on North Druid Hills Rd--that is my area. Convenient to Emory/downtown--urban/suburban--neighborhoods built in the 50's/ranches and 60's and newer housing including MacMansions. Young professionals, families and Boomers--empty nesters.

This is referenced as 'North Decatur/Emory/Toco Hill/Executive Park/Midtown to some--although that is a bit of a stretch. Va Highland is adjacent, Druid Hills/Morningside/Candler Park--ITP/Inside the Perimeter.

There are posters more familiar with Druid Hills and Sandy Springs. If you care to give an estimated housing budget or location of employment, educational needs for any children--that would help others to help you.

Apartments in Druid Hills and Sandy Springs are comparable--I BDR--$700-1,000 and beyond. I've heard $400,000 to 4,000,000 for both areas--some may be less and others more.
