It consists of many little restaurants: like Little Five Points Pizza, Zestos, and The Porter. Along with many choices of restaurants, there are several clothing stores also.

Crystal Blue is a little shop that is painted blue which sells things like jewelry and other little odd and ins. Vape  Atlanta is in pink building and it sells probably just about any flavor of vapor you could think of. All of these unique places are centered around what used to be the Five Point’s intersection. It was where Moreland Avenue, Euclid Avenue, and Seminole Avenue all intersected which gave Little Five points its name.

There was a man sitting outside of the stores sitting on the curb, playing a beat on a handheld bongo type of drum. There was a couple dancing to it and a man taking several pictures of the scene. He continued playing for only a little while. Thursday, February 11th, 2016. @ around 6:00...

Exterior Built Environment Description: Digital Record 2

On the main strip in Little Five Points, I came across this little shop. What caught my eye was the paintings on the storefront, it is not something a person could easily overlook. The storefront itself draws so much attention to this little place. It is a good way to get people to come take a look to see what they have inside. Thursday, February 11th, 2016. @ around 6:00...
