My walks in Midtown ended when I reached North Avenue NE. That is the border of Midtown and Downtown Atlanta. Since I am still in Peachtree St NE, I continued my stroll in the city. The significant things that I found in this walks are Bank of America Plaza, Emory University Hospital, SunTrust Plaza and Hardy Ivy Park. Below are some of my snapshots along the street in this part of Peachtree St NE.
