__________it depends on what part of Atlanta you'r in. SouthSide is GHETTO, while N., N.E., and parts of intown are mostly white.
Now this is true.
If you don't have money, you probably do not want to live right in Atlanta, you would fair better in a nice suburb of Atlanta. I've live here for about 7 years now and that is the way I see it and it is what most Atlantians suggest to newcomers.
However, I do think that changes are beginning to happen in Atlanta again, considering that from what I've been told, they have torn down a large housing project(s) that were harboring troublemakers and criminals, the only thing is that I was also told that all of those people moved to places like Riverdale or Clayton County. They are trying to do something about there being a significant number of homeless people downtown.
I think that since the former Mayor is no longer in charge of Atlanta, people may actually see all that tax revenue raked in by Atlanta do some good, bring Atlanta back to how it was before there was so much crime in the city. The citizens of Atlanta should be demanding to see what ever dime of tax money was spent on over all these years that each Mayor since Maynard Jackson oversaw its decline. I think that Atlanta, just like MANY cities and towns across the country have had too many people in charge that were lining their own pockets while doing nothing for the city they were/are in charge of. I think a lot of bank accounts need to be disclosed going back many years in Atlanta that belong to the politicians running Atlanta.
