“Everywhere you go, you see one of those “”EAV”” stickers. What, you wonder, has brought on such cult-like devotion as to inspire so many people to put that sticker on their car? East Atlanta (Village), baby.

Where is East Atlanta?
Approximately one mile directly south of Little 5 Points on Moreland Avenue, or about 3 miles east of downtown on I-20.
What makes East Atlanta special?
Just ask the residents. With the help of a little paraphrasing here and there, here’s what the East Atlanta Community Association has to say (central themes in bold, for your reading pleasure):
Hip: Three music venues bringing great live bands to the Village almost every night of the week make East Atlanta a hotspot for nightlife. Great variety of bars and restaurants, not to mention venues featuring DJs, pool and foosball, underground and foreign films. Throw in some boutiques and galleries, and you’ve got yourself a great little neighborhood.
Family-Friendly: East Atlanta is a great place to raise a family. Brownwood Park, with its playground, shady trees, and newly-renovated recreation center and computer lab, is located right in the middle of the neighborhood. The East Atlanta Branch Library is just a few blocks’ walk away, and the neighborhood is just around the corner from Grant Park, Zoo Atlanta, the East Lake YMCA, and the Warren/Holyfield Boys and Girls Club.
Active: Many weekends, you’ll see East Atlantans getting together to plant trees and flowers, clean up the neighborhood, raise money for public facilities, and just socialize. The strong neighborhood association, EACA, works closely with the Atlanta City Council, Zone 6 of the Atlanta Police Department, the Atlanta Fire Department to make life in East Atlanta better and better every day.
Fun: For the annual neighborhood festival, the East Atlanta Strut, the streets are closed for a parade, an artists’ market, children’s events, live bands, food, and fun. The Strut benefits local charities. Other neigbhorhood events include Notoberfest (the East Atlanta Beer Festival), the Brownwood Park Bike Rally benefiting the East Atlanta Kids Club, and the Battle of Atlanta Festival (most of the Battle of Atlanta occurred in the East Atlanta environs).
