Who are we?
East Atlanta Village (EAV) — An Urban Oasis of Culture and Community!
Those ubiquitous EAV stickers you see on cars all over town represent neighborhood pride unmatched by any neighborhood inside the Perimeter. East Atlanta is a diverse, friendly neighborhood with traditional neighborhood charm. Come see why the Washington Post calls us the best kept secret in Atlanta, the Creative Loafing calls us the the epitome of cool and a neighborhood’s neighborhood, too., and the New York Times says our neighborhood is reaching the crest in what has been a steadily rising wave of cool.
We’re convenient: Our number of quality shops, services, and restaurants within walking distance can be rivaled in Atlanta only by the Midtown or the Virigina-Highland neighborhoods. Thanks to proximity and uncongested roads, getting downtown is a breeze. You can get to Braves, Falcons, Thrashers, and Hawks games often without hitting traffic!
We’re hip: Three music venues bringing great live bands to the Village almost every night of the week make East Atlanta a hotspot for nightlife. We’re also your spot for live DJs, pool and foosball, underground and foreign film – as well as a great place to pick up some great clothing, art, and accessories. They don’t call it “the Village” for nothing! When all that fun starts to make you hungry, enjoy a meal at one of our excellent restaurants: Thai, vegan, burritos, burgers, pizza, ice cream, continental, brunch, and much, much more.
We’re family-friendly: Our neighborhood is a great place to raise a family. Brownwood Park, with its playground, shady trees, and newly-renovated recreation center and computer lab, is located right in the middle of the neighborhood. The East Atlanta Branch Library is just a few blocks’ walk away. We’re also near Grant Park, Zoo Atlanta, the East Lake YMCA, and the Warren/Holyfield Boys and Girls Club.
We’re active: Many weekends, you can see East Atlantans getting together to plant trees and flowers, clean up the neighborhood, raise money for public facilities, and just socialize. Our strong neighborhood association, EACA, works closely with the Atlanta City Council, Zone 6 of the Atlanta Police Department, the Atlanta Fire Department to make life in East Atlanta better and better every day.
We’re fun: For our annual neighborhood festival, the East Atlanta Strut, we close off the street for a parade, an artists’ market, children’s events, live bands, food, and fun. The Strut benefits local charities. More recently, we’ve added Notoberfest (the East Atlanta Beer Festival), the Brownwood Park Bike Rally benefiting the East Atlanta Kids Club, and the Battle of Atlanta Festival (most of the Battle of Atlanta occurred in the East Atlanta environs).
We’re a great value: One of Intown’s hottest real estate markets is still one of Atlanta’s best values. East Atlanta boasts an active market featuring homes of all kinds: stately Victorians, charming Craftsmans, adorable postwar homes, and lovely new construction.
Where is East Atlanta? We’re about a mile directly south of Little 5 Points on Moreland Avenue, or about 3 miles east of downtown on I-20. Visit us soon and you’ll see why East Atlanta has won so many Best of Atlanta awards from Creative Loafing magazine!
