Toledo Ohio Hoods
Map of the Toledo Gangs & Hoods
Nicknamed Glass City, the streets within the Toledo Ohio hoods can be seen on the city’s North Side, West Side, South Side, and the small sections of the East Side. A typical Midwest city that probably has more ties to the city of Detroit than any other city in the state of Ohio, the heart of the Toledo Ohio ghetto has had a combination of various gangs, like Bloods and Crips, to go along homegrown neighborhood cliques and affiliations.

Breakdown of Toledo Gangs & Hoods
What began around Stickney Avenue, the Toledo Ohio hoods would eventually expand into the North Side, outside of the Out Stickney neighborhood, in areas like Greenbelt, home to the infamous Cherrywoodz, the Chase block area along N. Summit Street, and surrounding areas of Lagrange Street and Cherry Street.
The Greenbelt Place apartments has had multiple names, from Cherrywoods to Northwoods, but since the 1970s, when the housing complex was constructed, this complex has been one of the most reputable Toledo Ohio hoods. A former area of Toledo Ohio gangs, like the Bloods and the Crips, Cherrywoodz has been known to have conflicts with other hoods in the city, especially the Chase Block and Moody Manor.
On the South Side there are two sections, one section is located around South Avenue and Western Avenue, which has a large Hispanic population, and the other section is south of Dorr Street centered around Nebraska Avenue. With a reputation from the old Brand Whitlock projects to notorious blocks like Belmont, officially known as ONYX, this section of the South Side along Nebraska Avenue is one of the city’s first black communities.
While the West Side is Toledo’s more affluent side there are sections that reside in the Toledo Ohio hoods. The West Side expands from along Detroit Avenue to along Bancroft, until Upton Avenue where the street changes into an upper scale neighborhood, to Dorr Street, as far as the Hill Ave. community, which is an all-black working-class suburb near the University of Toledo.
The East Side was once a predominantly white middle-class community, with pockets of African Americans, but has changed much from previous decades. Today’s East Side is now more of a lower income and working-class neighborhood. Along Starr, Nevada and Navarre streets, sitting between the Maumee River and Interstate 280, is a diverse communities of Latinos, blacks and whites with the more reputable areas being the housing projects, like Earl Block of the Weiler Homes.
