LIVING IN WESTVIEW
Like much of Southwest Atlanta, Westview was walloped by mortgage fraud and the Great Recession’s foreclosure crisis—at one point, roughly 25 percent of the neighborhood’s 1,200 houses were vacant. However, recent years have brought a rebound in myriad ways.
Most notably, the Atlanta BeltLine’s Westside Trail debuted last September, and Westview now counts about five blocks of frontage on a multi-use trail that’s upped the area’s cachet, providing exercise and transportation options (but steeper housing prices).
A Halloween porch crawl has sprung up, and intraneighborhood communications have graduated from a calling tree to a Yahoo group to an active Facebook page. This year, an expected surge in homegrown retail options should boost walkability.
