And the best part, you can eat breakfast at the Majestic Diner.

After reading forums on internet, I think I would like to live in Virginia Highland. I want somewhere near Emory and also close to bars and malls. Do you think I can find an appartment for 800$/month or less in VH?

Excellent choice, Piedmont Park is great during the hot summer days and there are always concerts going on at the 50 million bars and clubs around. Plus closer to Phillips to catch all the Thrashers games.

sugarloaf = Gaudy,new money, OTP Mcmansions, Not prestigious what so ever.

which is why the Nouveau Rich aka Thrashers players love it

But you gotta admit Sugarloaf is a freaking sweet name. It's like bread and candy at the same time.

At $800 it will be a tiny garage sized one bedroom in VA Highlands probably. If you want more for your $ look in "Poncey Highlands" or "Little 5 points" area, which is on the south side of Ponce road, but cheaper.

Also a popular place for young hipster crowd is East Atlanta Village which is further south of Emory's campus. Good places to eat and see bands if you're into that.

I'd say for a Quebecois moving to ATL, Decatur would initially be your best bet.

Alot of culture, good restaurants, eclectic feel, pretty liberal, i always see alot of thrashers stickers on cars too down there

Welcome to town. Good luck trying to find time for hockey. You won't be snowed in for 6 months of the year here.

Are there a lot of hockey fans in Atlanta and is it easy to find a league to play hockey? Thanks!
Compared to Montreal, Atlanta might seem like the 7th level of Hell but there are more hockey fans in Atlanta than you would imagine. Most of the rinks are in the suburbs but i know people who play and I also work at Emory. Send me an e-mail.
