A BeltLine Runs Through It

The Westside Trail of the Atlanta BeltLine runs through where the City’s historically black neighborhoods of Westview and West End – Atlanta’s communal, artistic, spiritual, wellness and educational epicenters — converge. To date, the thriving black-owned eateries that skirt the outermost margins of the trail on or just off Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard, are just a hop, skip and step away from the three-mile, multi-use BeltLine. Fuel up and go.
