People strolling outside shops in Little Five Points.
Little Five Points (also L5P or LFP or Little Five) is an area of Atlanta, Georgia, United States, 2.5 miles (4 km) east of downtown. It was established in the early 1900s as the commercial district for Inman Park (which lies to the west) and Candler Park(which lies to the east) neighborhoods. It is home to many of the city's older retail stores, restaurants, bars, theater companies, and music venues.
By the 1970s, Little Five Points had fallen into disrepair. A revitalization began as urban pioneers moved into the then-cheap neighborhood and restored the Victorian style homes. By 1981, local merchants formed the Little Five Points Partnership to continue the restoration and expansion of the retail area, turning what was formerly a gas station into the "484 retail area" — several retail shops aligned in strip-mall style.
