LIVING IN OLD FOURTH WARD
The Old Fourth Ward in Atlanta—or O4W for those in-the-know—is rich in history and culture, if not for the fact alone that it’s the birthplace of Martin Luther King Jr. Besides being the home of the most important civil rights leader in history, it’s got a hip, artistic, down-to-earth vibe, plenty to explore, and clutch location just east of Downtown.
Once a more unassuming neighborhood, in recent years Old Fourth Ward has seen lots of development, new housing, and rising real estate prices—as is the trend with many Atlanta neighborhoods. Despite the rapid development and increased popularity, O4W has largely maintained its unique character.
