    In 2014 Sam and Barbie Bromberg moved to Piedmont Heights from Alpharetta to be closer to Sam’s mother who lives in Morningside, where Sam was born, and to participate in the arts and cultural vibe of Atlanta. Sam came of age in Piedmont Heights in the late 1960s when, at aqe 15, he worked for Baskin-Robbins in Ansley Mall and then at the Kroger supermarket when it was located where CVS Pharmacy is today. Sam and Barbie are now “back home” at Rockridge Place. 

    Their new residence has a large side yard on Rock Springs Road where the previous owner had placed large boulders, an ornamental tree, and a concrete bench. Living across the street, I often noticed Sam walking around this yard or sitting on the bench in deep thought and one day went over to welcome him to the neighborhood. 

    I asked Sam if he would consider selling a portion of his yard to be converted into a “pocket park," explaining that it would be a pleasant resting spot for walkers and joggers along Rock Springs Road. Sam declined but liked the idea of further improving it as a neighborhood amenity. As time went by, Sam placed a sculpture of Humpty Dumpty on the bench, then added an electric lamp post and, most recently, a fake—but very realistic-looking—black and white dog relieving himself on a bright red fireplug. Sam said the dog’s name was Fritz and he was surprised it had not “walked off.” The diorama is totally charming, and Sam has, in fact, created the originally suggested pocket park.


    Recently I spotted Sam in his yard and went over to compliment him on the latest addition to the street scene. While we were sitting on the bench and talking, two walkers came by and cheerfully thanked Sam for what he had done. That says it all.


    Sam owns Nova Wealth Management Group, and Barbie is an Intuitive Counselor. They have made Piedmont Heights a much better place, and I hope their contribution will inspire others to create more such informal neighborhood pocket parks.

    Are you ready?

    The amended “Anti-Texting Law” now bans drivers from holding or resting phones while they use them anywhere on their bodies, period.

    The PHCA is an all-volunteer organization. While your dues cover the expense of communications, events, secutiry patrol etc. What we can accomplish is constrained by the number of volunteers. The good news is that the PHCA has enjoyed a wealth of wonderful volunteers willing to give their time and talent to improve the functioning of our neighborhood.

    But these folks cannot do it alone. We are in constant need of new neighbors willing to help out, whether they have only a little or a lot of time they can devote. Please Contact Us and we will be happy to discuss how you might contribute to our efforts.

    The rewards of working with the PHCA: 

    • Give back to the neighborhood
    • Expand your experience by trying out new jobs
    • Add experience to your resume
    • Meet the best neighbors and work with the most enthusiastic group of volunteers in Atlanta!

    Please contact membership@piedmonteheights.org for any comments, concerns or suggestions.
