Decatur Heights is a long-standing neighborhood (built up in the 1910s and 1920s) in the NE quadrant of Decatur, GA. In Atlanta parlance, it is ITP (inside the perimeter) because it is inside I-285. It is gradually transitioning toward newer, larger homes, via infill housing. But, anyone living in Decatur Heights, regardless of the age or size of house they live in or whether they own or rent, is welcome and appreciated, as long as they are good neighbors.
The name comes from the fact Sycamore Drive, the backbone street of the neighborhood (which is nearly level), is built on top of a natural ridge.
