Bankhead

West of downtown Atlanta, Bankhead features a central MARTA station and Maddox Park. The area is home to several rappers and the origin of the dance called the “Bankhead Bounce.” There are numerous housing projects in the neighborhood, as well as local gang activity and a high crime rate.

The region received its name from its main thoroughfare, Bankhead Highway, with runs east-wast through the middle of the neighborhood. The City of Atlanta recently renamed the road, however, to Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway in honor of the Civil Rights activist and attorney of the same name.
