So, a little background information on Atlanta.

A History of Atlanta
-So, your characters may not know all of this, but it is a good history provided by the Georgia Secretary of State office.

The Atlanta History Center
-Some interesting pictures, and the reference collection has some online resource (if your interested).

Atlanta Demographics
-US census information on Atlanta.

Atlanta Demographics
-More demographic information from Sperling's Best Places to Live web site.

Atlanta Neighborhoods
-A link to learn more about Atlanta's Neighborhoods
(Like a lot of cities, Altanta is broken down into historic neighborhoods.  Some of these are very active, and have a strong sense of community, and a strong individual identity.)

Neighborhood Map

Wikipedia has a page with Atlanta Neighborhoods, but the map is not that great.

Manuel's Tavern



Manuel's Tavern is a great local hang out very close to Little Five, and is very popular with a wide variety of people (the Supreme Court of Georgia use to hang out here after sessions, and it is the birth place of the what is now the Shakespeare Tavern).

Virginia Highland

The Virginia Highlands neighborhood is another place that people gather, and close to L5P.  While there are neighborhood bars, there are a lot of bars and restaurants that are more upscale.
