I thought I lived in Atlanta, but it turns out I do not. I was under the impression that this area of DeKalb county was part of the city of Atlanta. But according to this map of Atlanta neighborhoods, I am outside the municipal boundaries of Atlanta. The Census Bureau lists the “Place” we live in as North Druid Hills CDP instead of “Atlanta city.” Our mailing address obviously says Atlanta.
This is no big deal but it is embarrassing. While we moved to this neighborhood last month, I have lived in Atlanta for many years now. In fact, I have lived longer in Atlanta than any other place except my birthplace Wah Cantt.
The question is whether my neighborhood would be classified as suburban.
