Morningside is a quaint and prosperous community hidden between historic oaks and shady parks. You may almost forget you are in the middle of a big city; however, Morningside is one of the most thriving areas in Atlanta. Within walking distance to numerous restaurants, shops and award winning schools, you will find a combination of the ease of walkability and the comfort of a close-knit neighborhood.
Hosting several community events throughout the year, including the Monumental Ball and the Celebration of Summer, Morningside prides itself on being a friendly place to live. Many of the 3,500 homes are bungalow, colonial and Victorian style in a variety of price ranges, and are in designated neighborhoods such as University Park, Noble Park, Johnson Estates and Hylan Park.
In 1923, two prominent Atlanta real estate developers built eight homes in what is now known as Morningside Park, complete with a 70-foot wide paved street in front of homes and servant’s quarters in the basements. Advertisements called the neighborhood a “new type of suburb”, and the area boomed. Restaurants, schools and storefronts followed to fill the demands of the industrious, young families that lived there. To maintain the feel of Morningside in present day, the Morningside Lenox Park Association is very active working with city planners, meeting with residents, and making sure the historical charm of the neighborhood is not lost to new developments.
Ideally located close to Virginia Highland, Midtown and Ansley Park this Atlanta community is within walking distance to the Beltline, numerous parks, shopping, dining and more. Frequently, families will be seen walking down the shady sidewalks together, or playing in one of the many serene parks.
