Full Tour of the Duval County Jacksonville Hoods

Map that truly breaks down a city filled with apartment complexes, working class and lower middle class neighborhoods, and the tradition of cliques, showcasing the real Duval County – Jacksonville hoods in a city that was once known as the “Murder Captial of Florida”.

Residing in North Florida, Jacksonville for years have been known for the streets of the West Side, from 103rd to McDuff, the North Side, from Moncrief to Soutel, the East Side, and small sections of the South Side.  Now with the rise of top southern rappers, more light has been shed on the city. To be clear there are not any Jacksonville gangs, as far as Bloods and Crips, but cliques and neighborhood affiliation that often are portrayed as gangs.

Breakdown of the Jacksonville Hoods (Duval County)

Divided into four sections, with the South Side viewed as the more suburban and affluent side, other than sections of Arlington, Atlantic Blvd. and St. Augustine Road, the heart of the Jacksonville hoods are located on the West Side, the North Side, and the East Side.

Out East, or the East Side, has for years been one of the most reputable areas of Duval County, while being based around Florida Ave. and Phoenix Ave., stretching towards 21st Street.  Out East is a generational community, as the neighborhood was one of the city’s first all-black communities.  Even though the East Side is the smallest side, numerous of stars have come from this area.

On the city’s West Side, what began as a separate black community by the name of Mixon Town, would later expand into various sections of the West Side, sections around McDuff, 103rd, Paxon, and Sweetwater.

The largest section of the city is the North Side.  Once home to thriving historic neighborhoods like Davis Street, which was eventually destroyed and replaced by one of Florida’s first housing project, the Blodgett Homes, the North Side has always been the heart of the city. While Davis Street and Myrtle Ave.’s Durkeeville were two of the original neighborhoods, by the 1970s and 1980s the black population of the North Side expanded, from Moncrief to Dunn Ave.

White flight into the South Side created the large section separated by the St. Johns River. While the South Side is viewed more as the richer and upper middle class community, there are sections like Justina and Bert Road of Arlington, Caravan and Sin City off Atlantic Blvd., and Pine Forest.
