Morning, neighbors! I’m back with your new edition of the Buckhead Daily. Here’s all the community news you need to know right now…
First, today’s weather:
A stray afternoon t-storm. High: 90 Low: 71.
Here are the top three stories today in Buckhead:
- A resolution approved by the Atlanta City Council on Jun. 21 cites that the council does not want city funds to be used to investigate abortion care and for police to make investigations of abortion care the lowest priority. Councilmember Liliana Bakhtiari sponsored the resolution in the event that the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade before its session ends this month. The resolution is non-binding and was not discussed during the council meeting, but passed as part of the consent agenda. (Reporter Newspapers)
- According to 2020 US Census data, Buckhead remains wealthier and is booming bigger than the rest of Atlanta. The median household income is $109,774, far above Atlanta’s $68,806. Buckhead’s unemployment rate is 2.4 percent in comparison to Atlanta’s overall number of 6.5 percent. (buckhead.com)
- Peachtree Street has reopened after police shut it down on Wednesday to investigate a shooting. Investigators said they responded to a call of shots fired in the area of Peachtree Road and Peachtree Way. An off-duty officer saw a man get out of a 2018 McLaren and fire gunshots at a white SUV, which sped away. (WSB-TV 2 Atlanta)

Are you a Buckhead resident looking for an investment alternative to the stock market,
Bloomberg recently asked experts where they’d invest $100,000 right now, and many of them had the same answer: fine art.
Thinking you can’t afford a Picasso? Well in 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act, which allowed for the securitization of artwork. A company called Masterworks.io built the largest platform for buying and selling art securities. In the past, you could only buy shares of companies like Apple, but with this investing app, you can unlock this powerful investment.
Meaning, you can invest in shares of million-dollar artwork. And in uncertain times, it turns out, fine art may be a wise investment. Here’s why:
- Low correlation to stocks according to Citi
- Contemporary art historically returns 23.2% when inflation is >3%
- Contemporary art prices outpaced the S&P 500 by 164% (1995-2021)
