Atlanta - Little Five Points

Little Five Points (also L5P or LFP or Little Five) is a district of Atlanta, Georgia, 2½ miles (4 km) east of downtown. It was established in the early 1900s as the commercial district for the adjacent Inman Park and Candler Park neighborhoods to the west and east. It is home to many of the city's older retail stores, restaurants,bars, theater companies, and music venues. L5P is also known for the alternative culture that it brings to the city of Atlanta.

By the 1970s, Little Five Points had fallen into disrepair. A revitalization began as urban pioneers moved into the then-cheap neighborhood and restored the Victorian-style homes. By 1981, local merchants formed the Little Five Points Partnership to continue the restoration and expansion of the retail area, turning what was formerly a gas station into the "484 retail area" — several retail shops aligned in strip-mall style.
