Junkman's Daughter


Little 5 Points:. This Inman Park neighborhood business district of Atlanta caters to the alternative crowd and has become a hangout for hipsters, punks, goth high school students, and some individuals who defy description. It's also a great location for vintage-everything (clothing, record, book, etc.) shopping.

Understand[edit]

The name Little Five Points refers to an intersection of five streets. This is not to be confused with Five Points in Downtown Atlanta. Little Five Points is a business district in the Inman Park neighborhood, and is adjacent to the Candler Park and Poncey-Highland neighborhoods of Atlanta.
