The streets within the Columbus Ohio ghetto on the East Side reside in three main areas. One being the once historic neighborhood of Bronzeville, home to housing projects like Poindexter and Mt Vernon Plaza, or streets like Mt. Vernon Ave. and Atcheson Street. This section was the most active, but gentrification has gradually changed the neighborhood.
The other two sections are along Main Street, one with legendary hoods that have been around for generations, like Oak & Wilson and Mound N Berk, and the other being the far East Side. That section mostly consists of Easthaven, neighborhoods off of James Road, and Elaine Road. As mentioned, gentrification is affecting many East Side neighborhoods, especially everything west of Nelson Road.
The South Side is mainly centered around the streets of Livingston and Whittier, as well along Lockbourne Road, all sitting east of Parsons Ave. The South Side originated from the East Side as the construction of I-71 and the demolishing of sections of the black community forced many to relocate to the South Side during 1950s and 1960s.
The South Side would become one of the most reputable sections of Ohio. Home to one of the first Columbus Ohio gangs, Bloods on 22nd Street, along with other well known hoods like Fairwood N Livingston, Lincoln Park, Southfield, and more. With the South Side being close to downtown and neighboring affluent areas like German Village, gentrification has moved into specific sections, like Southern Orchards, while many housing complexes have been demolished or closed down.
The most diverse section of the city is the West Side, mixed with blacks, whites, Hispanics, and immigrants. The West Side is mostly a working class neighborhood, there are no real hoods of the West Side other than the apartment complexes of South Park and the blocks of the Hilltop.
The largest section of the city was to home one of largest Columbus Ohio gangs affiliations of Rollin’ 20 Crips, which originated from Long Beach before migrating to Ohio’s capital city. The North Side was also once home to areas like Windsor Terrace, or the Dub T, and the Short North, two of the city’s most notorious neighborhoods, in which both were gentrified.
While the North Side is home to a variety of sections like Milo Grogan, Brentnell, and Agler Road, the largest is the Linden neighborhoods, from Cleveland Ave. to Hudson Street. Like most sections, gentrification and other factors has led the North Side population to grow further north into areas from the apartments of areas like Tamarack to even further north.
