Map of Macon, GA Hoods
Being only an hour away from one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, the city of Atlanta has very little influence on the streets and community of the Macon Georgia ghetto.
This map of the ‘hoods within the Macon, GA ghetto breaks down the main urban areas and highlights the history of Macon gangs in one of the South’s first cities to have true gang activity, which consisted of Bloods, Crips, Gangster Disciples, Mafia Vice Lords and others.
History of Macon GA Gangs
Starting around the mid 1990s, ’95 and ’96, Bloods, Crips, GDs, Mafia VLs and others came in full effect in the city of Macon. Making the city to be one of the first city’s in the SouthEast of the US to have national gangs.
While gangs were around before then, during the late 1990s gang activity had the city divided with certain sides and certain neighborhoods beefing with each other. Today, gangs are not as important as most align themselves with their ‘hood and focus on making money.
History of Macon GA Ghetto
A city that has over 150,000 people living within Bibb County, the majority, around 67%, is African-American with the other percentage being mostly white.
Some of the first communities in the city for black families were Unionville, Pleasant Hill, Fort Hill, and a few other neighborhoods in the city of Macon. During the cities early days, like every other city in the south, there was heavy segregation with schools and other public facilites and places.
Beginning in the 1970s and 1980s, many white families began to leave the city, especially their Bloomfield and South Macon neighborhoods. Around that time, many claim that the movement of white families outside of the city was followed by many of the job opportunities that once were.
Today, the black community has spreaded to most of the city, like Bloomfield, Houston Avenue, Shurling Wood, or Bellvue, but gentrification is slowly taking over a bulk of the city’s urban neighborhoods.
