Neighborhood Info The Vine City Area map also includes the neighborhoods of English Aveue, Bankhead, Hunter Hills, and the Atlanta University Center. In the not too distant past, the English Avenue, Vine City and Bankhead districts suffered from urban blight and high crime rates. Especially bad was a notorious area called “the bluff” (acronym for Better Leave yoU F___ing Fool) centered around the corner of James P. Brawley Drive & Cameron M. Alexander Blvd. In recent years, redevelopment efforts have begun bringing this area back from the brink. An example of this turn-around is the beautiful new Rodney Cook Sr. Park.
The Atlanta University Center is home to the largest group of historically Black colleges and universities in the United States. Here you will find Clark Atlanta University, Spelman College, Morehouse College, and the Morehouse School of Medicine. If you are fortunate enough to have access to the Morehouse campus, be sure to see the mural by Fabian Williams.
In this part of town, two great streets for viewing murals are Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway and Joseph E. Boone Blvd. Also check out the area around the corner of Joseph E. Lowery Blvd and MLK Jr. Drive.
