If you’ve kept up with this blog circle thing, you’ll notice that I pretty much only post photos from our neighborhood anyways (Here for June and Here for July) We’re pretty much homebodies who don’t leave our 4-5 block radius bubble =). The month of August’s assignment was 5-10 photos from your neighborhood, so I tried to not post any photos from places we usually take Miles like the Georgia Aquarium or Centennial Olympic Park, and instead take some photos of our actual neighborhood which is technically the “Historic” Fairlie-Poplar District in Downtown Atlanta. All photos taken with my iPhone 4 and processed with the Camera+ app (my favorite camera app besides Instagram!)
Our street after the rain, many movies filmed here, most recent one that comes to mind is that they were shooting some scenes from the new Three Stooges movie here.
“The Office” – we lease a coworking space on the left of this photo right along Peachtree Street which is the main road in Downtown Atlanta, also 3 blocks away luckily so walking distance! =)
Sign for the Fairlie Poplar Historic District next to the main public library branch 3 blocks away.
Further down the street, next to the US Court of Appeals.
The other corner of our block from the first photo, also showing one of the neighborhood bars, Slice, next to us (not pictured is the sports bar, Sidebar).
Atlanta Segway tours explaining the history of our block.
Lastly, the view from the roof looking towards Centennial Olympic Park in the distance (taken a few months ago on the 4th of July actually).
And that’s our neighborhood! We love living down here and being close to the action but not too close. Downtown is a very business-oriented section of Atlanta with everything closing at 5:00 PM except for a few places like the Dunkin Donuts, Landmark Diner, and the two bars next to us. All of the night time action of bars and clubs is 3 miles down the street in Midtown, so it’s actually perfect to live here with an 18-month old.
