Alive with diverse culture, art, and a feeling of community, Reynoldstown is the perfect up-and-coming neighborhood of Intown Atlanta. Residents of Reynoldstown can be downtown in minutes either on Interstate 20, DeKalb Avenue, or the MARTA train – all of which are right inside the easily walkable neighborhood.
Reynoldstown was originally settled by railroad workers, mostly freed slaves and their descendants. They are proud of this heritage and celebrate every year with a lively and colorful Wheelbarrow Festival complete with a parade and lots of live music. The historic neighborhood declined with the fall of the railroads but has made a comeback as students, artists, and young families settle there for the proximity to downtown.
Reynoldstown is an active community – residents walk to nearby bars and restaurants for great cuisine and a little nightlife or to nearby shops for a little local retail therapy. The popular Atlanta BeltLine also cuts right through the middle of the neighborhood. The BeltLine offers miles of trails in a loop from South Atlanta to Buckhead. Reynoldstown residents can walk or bike to neighboring Cabbagetown or Inman Park, or even up to the popular hotspot, the Old Fourth Ward.
The architecture is as diverse as the residents, with everything from 20th-century shotgun houses to brand new, very modern lofts and condos. A stroll around the neighborhood is like a walk through time with historic bungalows on one block, modern sculpture in Gateway Park, and intricate murals around every corner. The local neighborhood watch takes great care of the community, offering increased security for residents’ comfort.
Since it is still on the rise, Reynoldstown is the perfect place to find an affordable condo that offers easy transportation downtown and a thriving community to enjoy. The historic charm and eclectic culture are sure to offer something for everyone to enjoy.
