The map above highlights the hoods and streets of the East Tampa ghetto, like College Hills, Jackson Heights, Grant Park, Ybor City, and several others. North of East Tampa, are the Tampa hoods like Sulphur Springs, Cross Busch, and Cross Fowler that account for the North Side. While West Tampa includes sections along West Main, as well Carver City, Robles Park, and Tampa Heights. To be clear, many neighborhoods are home to various cliques, not necessarily Tampa gangs.
The St Pete hoods are made up of small sections south of Interstate 175, which is known as the Midtown or South Side. What was once only a small area, would later expand throughout the years, entering areas of Childs Park, Jordan Park, Bethel Heights, Harbordale, and Lakewood.
Outside of the St Pete hoods, Pinellas County has smaller sections in the cities of Largo and Clearwater. This includes Greenwood, which is one of the oldest black communities of Pinellas County, High Point, and Largo’s Ridgecrest.
While St. Petersburg and Tampa are the most known, Tampa Bay’s Manatee County has a handful of hoods and urban sections in Palmetto’s Uptown section, Bradenton’s 9th Avenue, and various neighborhoods throughout Sarasota.
