With views of the skyline peeking through the tree cover and convenient access to all the surrounding in town neighborhoods, Reynoldstown occupies a prime location bordered by Moreland Avenue on the east, Cabbagetown on the west, rail lines to the north and a booming Memorial Drive to the south.
Originally settled by freed slaves, Reynoldstown was long a significant African-American neighborhood, but in the last decade or so its demographics shifted dramatically as new residents were drawn to the affordability and convenience of its charming old homes. Adding to the neighborhood’s convenience is the Inman Park-Reynoldstown MARTA station, a quick walk away that provides residents the option to avoid congestion on the roads.
The community is bolstered by a number of prominent local businesses, including the perpetually popular brunch spot Home Grown, and the neighborhood hub Park Grounds, a dog-friendly cafe that serves up coffee, drinks and sandwiches.
Despite the many changes reshaping the neighborhood, the residents of Reynoldstown have maintained an inclusive, welcoming atmosphere and the neighborhood promises to continue to grow and thrive. Especially with the development of the Beltline, which forms its western edge, the community’s appeal continues to rise.
