Little Rock Gangs
Map & Breakdown of the Little Rock Hoods
By the 1980s and 1990s Little Rock gangs began to become active in a new form, a form of Bloods and Crips, as well Chicago gangs of Gangster and Black Disciples, from the Little Rock hoods of North Little Rock to the East End to the West Side to the South End.
While the 1980s brought the likes of the Bloods in ‘hoods like Highland Park, which was one of the first areas to have a gang affiliation, much has changed since the time when the streets within the Little Rock ghetto witness gangbangin’ at its peak. Even though some people are still affiliated to gangs in the many Little Rock hoods, but gang activity has become less active in the streets since the 2000s.

With the arrival of gangs in the numerous Little Rock hoods the Bloods dominated, from John Barrow (Lime Hood) to the once Highland Park projects to the East End’s Brick Jungle (Hollingsworth), with only the Little Rock gangs being under the Crip affiliation being areas like College Station and 23rd and Wolfe Street.
Across the Arkansas River resides the streets of the North Little Rock ghetto, an area of neighborhoods like Eastgate, Off Pike, or Shorter Gardens to go with Little Rock gangs of the Black Disciples and the Gangster Disciples.
The city of North Little Rock began growing between the 1940s and 1960s with the original black community of North Little Rock being east of I-30 in communities like Dixie or Rose City, around Broadway and Lynch. The growth of North Little Rock’s urban communities continued during the 1960s and 1970s and expanded into areas like Pike Avenue or Camp Robinson Road, dividing North Little Rock into separate sections DTA and UPT.
The heart of the Little Rock’s metropolitan area expands from S. University Ave. to the Clinton National Airport, or from the West End to the East End. Before segregation came to an end, the city’s black community was based in sections of the South End and the city’s East End, mostly east of today’s Doctor Martin Luther King Drive.
When construction was booming around the city of Little Rock during the 1970s and 1980s, the inner city of Little Rock started to become predominantly black, from the West End to the South End to the East End, as white flight was moving people, businesses, and a tax base towards West Little Rock. While urban renewal changed and destroyed much of the East End, with the construction of housing projects, the airport and I-630 and I-30, today the urban community and its residents are moving further from the central part of Little Rock into areas and sections of the West Side or Southwest Little Rock.
