We think we do a lot of cheerleading on behalf of intown Atlanta, but our efforts are dwarfed by Kwanza Hall, who represents District 2 on the Atlanta City Council. District 2 is easily the hippest district in town, as it includes the neighborhoods of Atlantic Station, Castleberry Hill, Downtown, Home Park, Inman Park, the Marietta Artery, Sweet Auburn and the Martin Luther King Historic District, Midtown, Poncey-Highland, and the Old Fourth Ward–including, of course, our own Pencil Factory Flats & Shops.
Besides being integral to the Atlanta BeltLine project, during his tenure Hall has also focused on intown community development including historical preservation, small business development, and sustainable initiatives. He’s also a really great guy (CL‘s Best Local Political Figure in 2009 and runner-up in 2010).
Need more evidence of our councilman being a total rockstar?
Q. If it’s your last meal in Atlanta, where are you going?
The most recently opened restaurant in District 2. As I breathed my last, I’d post a review on Facebook and tweet my friends to support the place.–From 2009 interview on A is for Atlanta
