Where is South Atlanta? Does it include College Park, Pittsburgh, and Lakewood Heights? No. South Atlanta – like East Atlanta – is an officially recognized neighborhood. South Atlanta sits in the center of NPU-Y. The neighborhood is a mile south of Turner Field, home to the Atlanta Braves, and a mile north of Aaron’s Amphitheater, formerly known as the Lakewood Amphitheater. The neighborhood originated in the late 1880’s as it grew up around the prestige campuses of Clark University and Gammon Theological Seminary; our streets are named after the presidents and professors of these educational institutions. If you live anywhere between Gammon and Turman Avenues – you are a South Atlanta resident.
