Westview on 11Alive

Mark Malaguerra of Westview was featured on 11Alive News last night. Mark is the former President of the Westview Community Organization and has lived in Westview for seven years. The article and broadcast report only mentioned West End, but a lot of the footage was actually of Westview. Even with all our efforts people still seem to get the neighborhoods confused.

The story talks about how mortgage fraud swept through the area in the early to mid 2000’s¬†and really hurt the community. They also talk about the positive side of the situation, which is a lot of wonderful old homes available for half the prices you would find in other intown Atlanta neighborhoods.

If you would like a walking tour of Westview please contact Scott Smith at (404) 752-6423.
