East Point is known as one of the “sister suburbs” along with College Park. Although some parts of the city are run down, East Point has experienced a great revival in the past few years and is now populated with new residences and businesses. Many homes from World War II have been refurbished, and they provide an historic atmosphere for the area. Camp Creek Marketplace, a new shopping center, was recently built on the western side of the city, and it offers great shopping opportunities. The Fulton County School System has its headquarters in East Point, and the school system operates all of the public schools in the area.
