Map of Macon, GA Hoods
Being only a 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
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.
