ABOUT LITTLE FIVE POINTS
Little Five Points and nearby were initially developed due to the construction of major railroad lines through the area allowing access to cotton, cattle and later oil in LITTLE FIVE POINTS. The construction of the Interstate Highway System reinforced LITTLE FIVE POINTS`s prominence as a transportation hub, with four major interstate highways converging in the city and a fifth interstate loop around it. LITTLE FIVE POINTS then developed as a strong industrial and financial center and a major inland port, due to the convergence of major railroad lines, interstate highways and the construction of LITTLE FIVE POINTS International Airport, one of the largest and busiest airports in the world.
LIVING IN LITTLE FIVE POINTS
Little Five Points is Atlanta’s hippie ‘hood. Everything about the area is Bohemian chic, and vintage stores line the streets alongside a natural foods market and indie radio station. Pull up a chair and take in the music of street performers and commence people watching.
There are many treasures to be found in Little Five Points. This eclectic neighborhood, nestled just north of East Atlanta and easily accessible by I-20, is one of the most satisfying places to people-watch in Atlanta. Sure, there are actual amenities like vintage apparel shops, eateries, smoke shops, clothing bazaars, tattoo parlors, a natural food co-op, an indie radio station, independent bookstores, more than a few pubs – and even a giant, 30-foot-tall skull, but this hodge-podge of edgy artfulness simply pales in comparison to the people who live and work in this area. Though the main strip of Little Five (as the locals call it) is relatively compact, running mainly along Euclid Avenue and part of Moreland, it is packed with visitors, vendors and performers, all vying for a good experience with this neighborhood.Have a seat on one of the outdoor patios or benches and make up stories about the people passing you by; the variety of clothing/costumes, hairstyles, instruments, signs all scream “I’m expressing myself!” and that, friends, is a melting pot of sub-cultures that bubbles with fascinating layers. There’s a reason Little Five Points is known as a hippie hood.
