Many things matter about a neighborhood, but the first thing most people notice
is the way a neighborhood looks and its particular character. For example, one
might notice whether the buildings all date from a certain time period or whether
shop signs are in multiple languages. This particular neighborhood in Atlanta,
the Clairmont Rd NE / Cannon Farm Hill Rd NE neighborhood, has some outstanding things about the way it

the depth of the problem manifested here.

reveals that this is a larger proportion of people living alone than in
96.0% of the neighborhoods in America.

due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,

Notable & Unique: Migration / Stability
The freedom of moving to new places versus the comfort of home. How much

research has identified this neighborhood as unique with regard to the
transience of its populace.
