My Dh is a pilot and we are looking at moving closer to the airport. We are currently in Cartersville (moved for a job that later went bankrupt). I have been looking intown at crasftman bungalows, mainly in Sylvan Hills and Capitol View. From what I have read they are up and coming neighborhoods and would be a great commute for DH. I know there's a park down the street, but what else is there? What do you think/know about these neighborhoods? Any info would be helpful, good or bad. Thanks!!

Capitol View has been called "up-and-coming" for as long as I can remember! It has a great location, that's for sure. There was an AJC article on the crime rate there, and I would not, in good conscience, recommend this neighborhood to anyone with small children. Homes being robbed repeatedly, despite security systems, dogs, etc...scary stuff <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> Lots of drugs and prostitutes on the streets the last time we drove through.<br><br>
East Point is cute! I also have friends in College Park who like it very well....and we used to live a bit further south in Peachtree City, and we loved it there! Wonderful, wonderful town with an easy commute to the airport.<br><br>
Good luck!!!

I think College Park would be good too. We have friends looking to move out there since it's cheaper than Inman/Candler/Lake Claire/East Atlanta.
