Sweet Auburn is the part of Atlanta where Martin Luther King Jr was born and where the Center in the previous picture is located. Several blocks have been declared as being part of the Martin Luther King Jr National Historic District. Walking around in this area to look at the Queen Anne-style houses is a nice experience. It is also bewildering to see this fairly modest residential area, so close to the sky scrapers of downtown you can see in the background.
