Buckhead

Buckhead

The upper third of the city of Atlanta has plenty of small, wonderful, and occasionally diverse neighborhoods, but it’s pretty common to characterize the whole thing as Buckhead. What was once a sleepy, aw-shucks hamlet has grown dramatically into Atlanta’s most well-to-do area, with impressive mansions, flashy skyscrapers, private schools, and large malls all mixing together, sometimes successfully. Brookhaven, just outside the city limits to the northeast, recently incorporated into its own city of mostly very nice homes and new apartments.
