Overview of Atlanta
Welcome to the Big Peach! Atlanta is the ninth largest city in the United States and the center of the Southeast. It’s also one of those cities that just won’t quit—being burned to the ground during the Civil War only motivated Atlantans to come back again, stronger than ever. That feisty spirit is why a phoenix rising from the flames serves as the city’s symbol. Apartments in Atlanta entice all sorts, from railroad engineers to airline executives, from civil rights activists to Olympians. Maybe you want to join the party? Rent yourself an Atlanta apartment and sing along to the sweet song of the New South.
Living in Atlanta, GA
Atlanta came up with the railroad. At first, the town here was called “Terminus,” as this was the end of the line for train traffic. By 1842, a few residents lived in the area and the name was changed to Atlanta. Within another decade, rail lines had been laid towards all points of the compass, making Atlanta the rail hub for the Southeast. General Sherman ordered the city razed during the Civil War, but it rapidly regrew as “the New South.” Atlanta is still the primary transportation hub for this quadrant of the country. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the world’s busiest.
Known as an epicenter of the Civic Rights Movement, Atlanta has long been known for its African American wealth, power, and culture.
