Jump to navigation Jump to search

East Point is southwest of the neighborhoods of Atlanta in the city's Metro Area. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 39,595. The city is named for being at the opposite end of the former Atlanta & West Point Railroad from West Point, Georgia.

East Point is home to R&B and hip hop groups such as TLC, OutKast, Coolbreeze, Organized Noize, and Goodie Mob. It is also the home of Teddy Geiger and author and film critic Alonso Duralde. A growing fine arts community includes artists: Bjay Allen, Marc Villanueva, Su Abbott, and Alli Royce Sobel.

A portion of the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is located in East Point. The National Archives regional repository for data collected from the U.S. Census was originally located in East Point until it was moved to a new facility in the nearby city of Morrow, Georgia.
