How to Explore Inman Park Edges While Getting a Hairdo Pt. 1 of 2 Fallen Arrows and The Dickey


When I'm lucky, I get to take JoAnn to the salon. While she gets her "do" done, I explore.

I know what you are thinking: It's way easier to wait in the car, listen to sports talk, and do Instagram. But I am the Architecture Tourst after all and I can't do three things at once anyway. (See Part 2:
How to Explore Inman Park Edges While Getting a Hairdo Pt. 2 of 2 The Wisteria Block)



On Wednesday it was "The Dickey" / Fallen Arrows block and then the four restaurants at the corner of  North Highland Avenue at Colquitt: Folk Art, Il Localino, North Highland Pub, and Wisteria. The restaurants be in part 2 of 2.



What is The Dickey? They are rehabbing a warehouse at 900 Dekalb, making a place for office lofts and restaurants, yoga, and the like. The Giving Kitchen and UrbanTrans are already there. Looks cool but who is Dickey?

Delta, Edgwood, Waverly, and Dekalb Avenue make an interesting block. Edgewood is one of the finest streets in Atlanta. DeKalb is a warehouse row that fronts Hulsey Yard and a hair-raising speedway of a street.

Here's The Dickey. They've removed some brick to open the place up leaving some mural parts behind.

I think this may be a restaurant area with a view.

UrbanTrans has been working out of here for a year or so.

They cut the brick away, put in some nice steel to hold it up.  There's a covered walkway then the glass fronted rooms. I think this one may have do Yoga.

That's my bit on the Dickey and Fallen Arrows.
