Neighborhood Info     The above map covers Atlanta’s Downtown and West End neighborhoods.  Atlanta was founded in 1837 as the endpoint of the Western and Atlantic Railroad and was originally (and appropriately) named Terminus. This tiny town of Terminus with a population of 20 evolved into what is now downtown Atlanta. Downtown is the city’s largest business district and home to several major corporate headquarters and iconic highrise buildings. But downtown Atlanta isn’t all business. Other attractions include Centennial Olympic Park, The Georgia Aquarium, The World of Coca-Cola, The Center for Civil and Human Rights, Mercedes-Benz Stadium (Atlanta Falcons), and Phillips Arena (Atlanta Hawks). The Georgia State University Campus is also in Downtown Atlanta. 

West End Atlanta’s origin as a junction point of roads running to diverse destinations is still reflected in the neighborhood’s diversity today. West End is a residential neighborhood featuring classic architecture and soul food and vegetarian restaurants.  Like other in-town neighborhoods, West End has become a focus for young professional real estate pioneers in recent years.  One of the engines driving this transformation is Atlanta Beltline’s Westside Trail which runs along West End’s southwestern edge. In fact the first section of the Atlanta beltline opened in West End in 2008. That’s why the Beltline’s zero mile marker makes its home in West End. 

Most Atlantans don’t think of Downtown and West End as street art neighborhoods, but the murals and large-scale graffiti walls are there.   For example, most of the three million annual visitors to Centennial Olympic Park are completely oblivious to the huge graffiti wall by Hense (Alex Brewer) less than a minute away. The street art tends to be located in smaller widely dispersed pockets.  One not to be missed pocket of street art surrounds the huge mural wrapped around the Walker Street Mini Storage. You will also find street art, murals, and graffiti spaced along the stretch between Walker St. and Murphy Ave.  To see it all, just follow the above map.
