Neighborhood Info     Even during the era of segregation the Old 4th Ward was a racial patchwork where blacks and whites lived next to each other. The neighborhood was also an economically diverse area with some of the city’s most desirable residential streets in close proximity to festering slums.

The Old 4th Ward has followed the same pattern as many of Atlanta’s intown neighborhoods: prosperity and fashionability followed by decline and despair followed by revitalization and gentrification. The gentrification of the Old 4th Ward began in the 1980’s and is still going strong today.

Part of the neighborhood’s history was preserved when the former Sears, Roebuck & Company building was converted to Ponce City Market a mixed use development attracting fahsionistas and foodies. Immediately south of Ponce City Market is Historic Old 4th Ward Park where several annual festivals are held. At the south end of old 4th Ward Park is a large skate park. I’m told that Tony Hawk himself has skated there. You might also check out the hip nightlife along Edgewood Ave. near Boulevard.

Old 4th Ward is filled with street art! And it’s not just in one place, it’s all over the neighborhood. The markers on the map are arranged in a reasonably efficient sequence to take you to all of it. The murals are very close to each other at the very south end of the neighborhood (along Decatur St.), but they spread out after that.
