Atlanta is a great city to move to for a better life; but at the same time it can be boring as fuck! You have to spend money to have fun here U know like: going to the club, going to the movies, and going to Six Flags & carnivals & shit. People don't know how to go out & just chill down here without spending big money or gettin high all day. Now when it get cold down here the whole city shut down U can just forget it just go in the house & go on myspace or sumem. Aight, now that I got dat off my chest lemme break down the countiies in the ATL area. Atlanta is one of da few cities wit GHETTO suburbs I didn't even know dat was possible. Most of Atlanta has nice neighborhoods fulla criminals so looks can be deceiving (lol did I spell dat right?)
Atlanta "Zones" are originally from the Atlanta Police Department but people still use these Zone numbers even when there out of jurisdiction and are enforced by Dekalb Police or sumem. They represent what side of Atlanta your from. So I'm gonna break em down and give yall sum example cities so U can get a understanding of the Zone areas.
Buckhead,North Fulton (everything north of Downtown & Midtown dats Zone 5), Parts of Cobb County (EX. Marietta, Smyrna)
East Point, College Park, Parts of Clayton County (EX. Riverdale, Forest Park)
Where all da big buildings & arenas at
Eastside, Parts of Dekalb (EX. Decatur, Ellenwood area)
Cherokee: Racist ass fuck. So far away it shouldn't even be considered Atlanta but I had to let yall know its racist.
Clayton: LOL stay away! One of da smaller counties but the ghetto quality of people make up for the small quanity. Forest Park, Riverdale, Lovejoy, Conley, Rex, Morrow, Jonesboro....parts of College Park & Ellenwood. Competing with Dekalb County for the best looking but most dangerous county award; Clayco aint nuntn to play with. Houses are so cheap because of the chaos dat goes on. Clayton County got the worst school district down here. Dont let sweet lil city names like Lovejoy fool U. Niggas crazy ova dere.
Cobb: Very segregated. Cobb County still got sum racist white trash (Marietta Police & CCPD) & dey hate the fact dat we taking ova! U got cities like Marietta (Da May) wit real rich areas in East Cobb & sum real rough lookin areas in West Marietta (U can be driving down a nice street & make one little turn & get robbed) for example: the historic Marietta Square looks real nice but not too far behind it is the old Black neighborhood of Lemon Street infested wit drugs & hella hookers. Crime has gon up a lot in Marietta in da little time I been down here. White people slowly moving out. There are white parts of Cobb like Powder Springs & Kennesaw but not for long cause niggas slowly takin ova. Den U got cities like Smyrna (Lil Mexico), Austell (sumem like a extension of cities half of Austell next 2 Marietta & da oda half by Mableton),& Mableton (Mostly black but few white trash with Confederate flags but it obviously aint keepin niggas away so give it up) its close 2 Bankhead on da Fulton County border. U also got Vinings (Buckhead in Cobb) near Smyrna.
Dekalb: Got rich parts like Dunwoody & Chamblee, the rest middle class & hood. I'm proud to say dat lots of rich minorities live here. Dekalb County got sum of da prettiest hoods U eva seen it don't look bad like New York. Den U got gutta places like Glenwood....& alotta woods Kirkwood, Ellenwood, Edgewood.....Decatur where its greata, Stone Mountain, Avondale, Lithonia, Tucker, Panthersville, Redan, Druid Hills, Scottdale, Clarkston, Mcafee...too many to name shawdi.
Douglas: Touches Cobb & Fulton County. Has up & coming cities like Douglasville & country parts like Villa Rica. Lithia Springs is pretty much Austell but in Douglas County.
Fulton: Where da actual city of Atlanta is. Now U got like 3 parts of Fulton: North, South, and like inside 285/the middle of it. North is the rich side with cities like Roswell, Sandy Springs, & Alpharetta where Whitney Houston & Usher got houses. The middle part got Buckhead, Downtown, gay ass Midtown (trust me, shit Atlanta got alotta outrageous gay people overall its some gay dude dat be skatin all da time ova here), and the notorious West Side of Atlanta from Bankhead 2 S.W.A.T.S. (SoufWest Atlanta, where the movies Beauty Shop & Crackheads Gone Wild was filmed), & cities like East Point dat got alotta black people but SURPRISINGLY is a very nice place 2 live, U also have workin class cities like Hapeville where da first Chik-Fil-A is (DEY GOT BURGERS!). Den South Fulton got parts of College Park & like 3 up & coming cities dat you might of neva even heard of like Palmetto & it seem like everybody dat live ova dere go to Creekside High School so dey probably gon be building anotha school ova dere soon.
Gwinnett: Mostly white but has Mexican hoods. Dey tryna keep it White by making up laws but people are moving here anyway. The cities dat are close to Dekalb County have alotta black people but the further away U go the more White & country it is. Gwinnett County also has some great High School sports teams. Has nice cities like Norcross & Lilburn. They're building alotta stuff there too & with cheap houses it's da place to move right now.
Henry: "Tryna rep da ATL when ya from Henry County!" Southside Mafia of Clayton County, line from "Duck When We Bust" (Crime Mob Diss). Dat was how people felt about Henry County not too long ago, but because of the rising crime rate in places like Stockbridge (Glockbridge) ATLiens are slowly letting Henry County dudes rep da A. On dat note the ATL Area is slowly spreading as areas gain enough respect to be considered Atlanta with counties like Rockdale,Fayette, Paulding & etc. slowly on da rise.
How far is Atlanta from here? Well what part of Atlanta do U wanna go the part in Fulton, Cobb, or Dekalb?
