! – Atlanta Picture


Buford Highway is the main artery of Atlanta, Georgia’s thriving, multi-ethnic community. Unlike ethnic neighborhoods in most American cities, however, the Buford Highway corridor is not overtly segregated, urban, or… even a neighborhood really. Like other American cities such as Houston and Los Angeles, Atlanta has experienced a path of new immigration going straight to the suburbs; where housing and commercial real estate more closely resembles affordability and where many 2nd generation immigrant communities have already relocated. For various reasons, however, on Buford Highway distinct ethnic areas do not exist for the most part as more than 1,000 immigrant-owned businesses of all kinds share neighborhoods, retail space, workers and patrons.
