Old Fourth Ward is an urban and artsy Atlanta neighborhood just east of downtown. As a transitional area, there’s both low-income tenants and hip housing and nightlife spots. Some of the more popular destinations include the Old Fourth Ward Park, Ponce City Market and the Beltline Eastside Trail, which forms the neighborhood’s eastern border.
The North Avenue and King Memorial MARTA stations are both a few blocks away from the neighborhood, which unlike other intown neighborhoods, doesn’t have a central commercial or retail district. However, there are several bus routes that travel through the area depending on where you need to go. Choose from:
Bus 99 departs from the North Avenue and Georgia State MARTA stations and provides service on North Avenue, Boulevard, Monroe Drive and 10th Street. Destinations off the route include the Atlanta Medical Center, Midtown Promenade and Piedmont Park.
Bus 16 departs from the Five Points station and travels past the Atlanta Civic and near the Old Fourth Ward Park via Ralph McGill Blvd. There are several apartment and condo buildings off this route, which continues on to the Carter Center and Virginia Highland.
