Neighborhoods: North Druid Hills, Merry Hills, Victoria Estates, Woodland Hills, Toco Hills
The part of town located directly to the north of Emory University and the CDC is also one of the most neighborhood-y.
Needless to say, there’s a strong presence of locals who are affiliated with the institutions we just mentioned, many of whom inhabit the early- to mid-century dwellings that have been almost perpetually inhabited since their erection. But this part of town has grown around these neighborhoods: Toco Hills in particular is a popular shopping destination for the residents of northeast Atlanta who need to pick up a few things on the way home, whether they work nearby, or are returning home via I-85 (the interstate runs right through the area, giving easy access).
But, we mentioned neighborhoods. It’s not too hard to find a family that’s wiled away the decades on any given street. Whole generations have been born and raised on the quiet streets of 30329, making this area a natural fit for the family life, while still offering all the conveniences and amenities of the city, just close by.
