Cushman & Wakefield Retail’s new “Cool Streets” report is an examination of some of the hottest neighborhoods in the country, and looks at their coolness rating, given a number of factors ranging from Walkability to Nightlife and Diversity.
Two of Atlanta’s neighborhoods made it into the report’s Top 100: Little Five Points and the Old Fourth Ward. Both are eclectic areas of town that attract young people to their terrific food offerings, nightlife and edgy scene.
Little Five Points was deemed “Prime Hipness” due to its perfect scores in Walkability, Food, Nightlife, Music, Arts, Diversity and Vintage/Thrift. It also scored well in being Bicycle Friendly. Its only knocks were in access to higher education and public transportation.
Old Fourth Ward was deemed “Still Cool,” but perhaps coming down a bit from its height. It scored perfectly in Food, Nightlife and Diversity, while coming in strong with Walkability, Bicycle Friendly, Music and Arts. Its Vintage/Thrift, access to higher education and public transportation were lacking.
