The Neighborhood

One of Atlanta’s most desirable neighborhoods in the late 19th century before falling into disrepair in the 1960s, the Old Fourth Ward is also where Martin Luther King, Jr., grew up (you can visit his boyhood home) and honed his preaching style, delivering sermons at Ebenezer Baptist Church.

In recent years, the “O4W” has become a striking symbol of intelligent gentrification in the Georgia capital, a place where abandoned warehouses are being converted to lofts and small businesses are thriving–while the authentic flavor of this historic area remains preserved.

Other Things to Note

Here are ten reasons to love this ever evolving neighborhood:

1. Ponce City Market. Housed in the former Sears, Roebuck & Company building, this mixed-use development is poised to become the city’s next hot spot for eating, shopping, working, and living. Modeled after Chelsea Market in New York City, Ponce City Market has already lined up top-shelf retail and restaurants to fill the massive space.

2. The Atlanta Streetcar. Atlanta’s public transportation system isn’t up to par with most major metropolises in America, but the Atlanta Streetcar is a good start toward getting it there. It’s also rekindling a link with the city’s past, when electric streetcars connected the community. The first phase of the project will link the MLK National Historic Site with Centennial Olympic Park, where further transfers can be made at the MARTA rail and bus lines.

3. The BeltLine. It started with a Georgia Tech graduate student’s proposal to transform outmoded railroad tracks line into a walking and cycling path through Atlanta. Now, the BeltLine is becoming a reality. The most commonly used section is the Eastside Trail between Piedmont Park and Irwin Street, which goes past Ponce City Market. This area is home to frequent art installations, as well as restaurants with open-air seating.

4. Epic Southern Brunch. Sunday brunch is one of the things at which the South excels, and no neighborhood does it better than the Old Fourth Ward. Head to Parish or Two Urban Licks, where you can stuff your face with eggs Benedict while watching the drama unfold on the BeltLine below. Highland Bakery is the ultimate in decadence, with French toast as big as your head, while diner-chic Home Grown, on the border of Reynoldstown, serves up the best biscuits in town.

5. Edgewood Avenue Nightlife. Atlanta’s young and hip used to make a beeline for Buckhead to wet their whistles, but Edgewood Avenue is fast becoming the place to find affordable dive bars with authentic ATL edge. Perhaps the best example is Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room and Ping Pong Emporium (shortened to Church), where guests can people-watch or play table tennis while wearing choir robes. Mother is another popular bar, as is Joystick, where you can play your favorite childhood arcade games while sipping craft beers.

6. Jackson Street Bridge. Fans of The Walking Dead will immediately recognize the stretch over Freedom Parkway from the opening sequence of the show when Rick Grimes enters the abandoned city on horseback. The unassuming Jackson Street Bridge is frequently used as a backdrop for amateur photo shoots for fans and those looking for the best view of the skyline at all hours.

7. Street Art. Graffiti used to be an urban scourge; now it’s being embraced as a means of transforming otherwise drab brick buildings into works of art. This is especially true in the Old Fourth Ward, with the annual Living Walls, the City Speaks conference bringing in artists from all over the U.S. to beautify streets like Edgewood Avenue, Carroll Street, and Krog Street Tunnel.

8. Local Markets. Sweet Auburn Curb Market, established in the aftermath of the Great Atlanta Fire of 1917, is where generations of locals have gone to purchase fresh food. Dozens of restaurant stalls–notably Bell Street Burritos, Arepa Mia, and Grindhouse Killer Burgers–have also opened up. The Freedom Farmers Market takes a more traditional approach, setting up Saturdays in the parking lot of the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum (one of Georgia’s native sons). Pick up produce and meats from local farmers, as well as baked goods, fresh pasta, and ready-to-eat fare.

9. History: The Old Fourth Ward is one of Atlanta’s oldest areas. That’s why developers are taking pains to preserve that heritage while giving historical–but dilapidated–buildings new identities in the modern age. Ponce City Market is a prime example of this, as is the Masquerade, a popular indoor-outdoor music venue that occupies the old Dupre Excelsior Mill complex. Get a taste of what the neighborhood looked like before gentrification began in full force by touring the Sweet Auburn Historic District.

10. Community Pride. Most Atlantans are proud of their city, but O4W residents take even greater pride in their neighborhood. They come out to support events like the Georgia Marathon, which passes through the area, with pom-poms and signs. They also throw a great party, with festivals such as the Old Fourth Ward Arts Festival, Sweet Auburn Springfest, and One Musicfest.

About Sarah Sadd

I am a 30-something digital nomad, bouncing between Atlanta and Nicaragua and traveling to other cool places in between. I love hosting guests and sharing the awesome city of Atlanta with fellow travelers.

Sarah Sadd purchased this house in 2014

Why Sarah Sadd chose Old Fourth Ward

My home is cute, comfortable and right in the middle of "the place to be" in Atlanta. It is 2 blocks from the Beltline Eastside Trail, where thousands of people each week walk, ride and play in the city.

What makes this house unique

Close to everything - downtown, the interstate, the airport. Walking distance to dozens of shops, restaurants and bars, comfortable and well-appointed, plenty of off-street parking. Handicap accessible.

Spacious and clean!

  • 5 of 5

I am usually disappointed in the cleanliness of a vacation rental; but, this home was up to my standards! It was spacious and comfortable and there was plenty of sleeping space. It is walking distance to our son's home (a real plus for us) and to the Beltline and stores and restaurants. Sarah was reachable and helpful! We would definitely return to this home.

Sarah's bungalow is perfect and the name is right on - it is a cozy bungalow! My team used this as a getaway for a one-day work planning day so we did not spend the night, but this house would have been perfect if we had needed to. The location is great, lots of off street parking and everything was as it had been described!

Really enjoyed our time here

  • 5 of 5

We are not super familiar with Atlanta and we tried to find a safe place to stay close to downtown. At first getting to the house we where hoping that the location was ok. After the first night we realized the location was awesome! Close to everything. We toured the city and fell in love with Atlanta and we where super happy to be in a historical area. The house - clean! Yay! That was really important to us. We do not like dirty or bugs. And this place was super clean and no bugs! Had every thing we needed and beds very comfortable. Shower water pressure great! We are kinda picky people and we loved it here! If possible we would love to rent again. If we visit Atlanta again we would not go anywhere else.Krog st market - awesom super close! Sarah was super helpful and organized. This was our first experience to use VRBO. We would use again.

I Will Be Back

  • 5 of 5

My wife, her sister, and brother in law were in town for our daughter's wedding. The location provided an easy walk to the Belt-line, numerous restaurants, and ICE CREAM! The rental was roomy and exceptionally clean. Driveway easily accommodated both of our vehicles and we felt very safe during our entire stay. Sarah responded to my questions within 5 minutes via email. Best experience of any of my previous rentals.

P. S. Wedding was beautiful and most of all, successful!
