East Atlanta is the recently gentrified district of Atlanta. It includes the growing communities of Inman Park, the popular dining and nightlife neighborhoods of Little Five Points, Virginia-Highland, and Poncey-Highland. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and one of the top U.S. research universities, Emory University, are located in this area.
Part of this district extends into DeKalb County, including the neighborhoods of Druid Hills, East Lake, Candler Park, Edgewood, Kirkwood, and East Atlanta. This article is not to be confused with the neighborhood of the same name. That neighborhood is referred to as East Atlanta Village.
MARTA Rail East-West Line stops in King Center (E2), Inman Park/Reynoldstown (E3), Edgewood/Candler Park Station (E4), and East Lake Station (E5). Interstate 20 is also close.
