The Last Year at Forest Cove
The federally-subsidized apartment complex known as Forest Cove has some of the worst conditions in Atlanta. For years, tenants sought help with the rats, burned out units and trash that surrounded them. Nothing ever changed. The residents’ only choice was to wait on a long-promised renovation. Then, at the very moment construction was set to begin, that promise fell apart. The Last Year at Forest Cove is an investigative series following one resident who continued fighting for better conditions despite broken commitments from private companies and inaction from the government.
