Home to legendary communities like Orange Mound and the heart of South Memphis, an area from Crump Blvd. to McLemore to South Parkway, which were the city’s first all-black neighborhoods, but also the former home of projects like LeMoyne Gardens, Fowler Homes, Foote Homes, and Cleaborne Homes.
Outside of the original South Memphis hoods, south I-240 is the areas of Westwood, Walker Homes, Blackhaven (Whitehaven), Riverside, Castalia, and expanding as far as Southeast Memphis (East Memphis), with numerous Memphis gangs like Pirus, Hoovers, Grape Street Crips, Neighborhood Crips, and more.
