We moved from Buckhead to West End back in July 2008 and couldn't be happier. As Mee Mee said, crime is everywhere in Atlanta - truth is, crime follows the opportunity. The West End Neighborhood Development (W.E.N.D.) meeting last week (every first Tuesday at the Peeples Street library) reported that crime in West End is down 60% over the last two years. The VAST majority of crimes here are teenagers breaking in to a car, stealing stuff from stores, or petty quick little smash and grabs.
Honestly, this is Atlanta's hidden gem and in only a few years it is going to rival East Atlanta and Inman Park - and for the GREAT home deals it is hard to pass up. Perfect location, great neighbors, active association, and lots of potential. Plus some of the most amazing historic homes you have ever seen.

p.s. We are having a Spring Festival in West End this year, check out www.atlantawestfest.com... more
