North Avenue got its name long ago, when 150 or more years ago, it was built along the northern city limits of Atlanta, when Atlanta was a young city in the State of Georgia. For decades, huge portions of both Atlanta itself and Metro Atlanta have been built north of North Avenue, and also beyond the eastern and western ends of North Avenue.

The western half of North Avenue carries U.S. Highway 29, U.S. 78, and U.S. 278, but the eastern parts those highways follow Ponce de Leon Avenue, just two city blocks north of North Avenue.

Notable landmarks along North Avenue include the Bank of America Plaza, The Varsity, the Georgia Institute of Technology, the high-rise headquarters of BellSouth Telecommunications, and the high-rise world headquarters of The Coca-Cola Company.
