Kirkwood is on the east side of the city. A historic streetcar suburb, Kirkwood was designed by architect Will Saunders. Downtown Kirkwood has become what neighbors call "the small town in the big city," hosting its own post office, newly constructed fire station, police precinct and public library.
Kirkwood's largest homes were built during the community's early years of development and were built in the Queen Anne, East Lake, Arts and Crafts and Victorian Folk styles. As styles evolved, two-story craftsman-style American Foursquare homes and craft bungalows started to emerge and homes of that style are the majority in Kirkwood today.
Residents and visitors have a host of shopping and dining options at their disposal. Local favorites include brunch spots Sun in my Belly and Le Petit Marche, and delicious pub fare can be found at The Pullman and Kirkyard Public House. Relative newcomers Ration & Dram and Dish Dive are excellent casual dinner choices.
Residents in Inman Park are typically zoned for Toomer Elementary School, King Middle School and Jackson High School. School zoning information can be found here: http://www.atlanta.k12.ga.us/Page/832
