n. A historically diverse community located east of Piedmont Ave. and Downtown Atlanta
. It is one of the oldest sections of the city, having been built in the 1890s. The main thoroughfare in today's Old Fourth Ward is Boulevard
, which was the site of economic decline throughout the 1950s-1980s, and now consists mostly of section 8
housing. The area is still infamous for its drug dealer
, and other crime. Rumor has it, however, that the city has been making efforts to clean up the neighborhood and restore it to its original state.
