Another Minnesota post....

As previously mentioned, North Minneapolis is the poor section. Yet, over in St. Paul, the East Side is the blue collar, poorer part of town. Geographically, Minneapolis is more of a North-South city, while St. Paul is more of an East-West city.

Interesting about Duluth. I imagine that the port area is more on the West End of town while the bluffs overlooking Lake Superior are on the East.

Not sure if someone's already done Baltimore, but the general trend in the city is that the North is rich while the south, east, and west are lower class. However, there are large areas of middle class and even upper class to the south of the city.

Baton Rouge has a profound divide between the rich south and the poor north. All the oil refineries are north of downtown; the university is to the south.

LV

Las Vegas has a very obvious divide. Scary, and unfortunate I am from there.

Yes, they do drive up the roads in the winter.

The homes on the hill range from the poorest subsidized housing to some of the most expensive houses in the city. However, the neighborhood with the best views of the city (view of downtown, the lake, the harbor, and the sandbar) is also interestingly the poorest, with plenty of Section 8 (subsidized) housing. They even built subsidized townhomes atop the hill.

Indianapolis: Generally speaking, our more wealthy areas are on the north-side. But there are nice areas on each side of town...

North
Carmel: $$$$$
Westfield: $$$
Noblesville: $$$
Fishers: $$$$
Zionsville: $$$$
Trader's Point: $$$
Midtown: $$$$$$
Glendale: $$

South
Perry Meridian: $$
Greenwood: $$$
Center Grove: $$$$
Whiteland: $$
Franklin: $$
Beech Grove: $$
Franklin Central: $$
Southside: $

West
Brownsburg: $$$
Avon: $$$
Plainfield: $$$
Danville: $$
Mooresville: $$
Speedway: $$
Lafayette Square: $
Westside: $

East
Cumberland: $$
Lawrence: $$
Eastside: $
Brightwood: $

And then of course there is downtown which would be $$$$ because of how expensive it is to live there!

Overall, for London there is no real north/south/east/west divide, with lots of areas having both wealthy and poor parts, but to generalise:

West: On the whole, the most affluent, with many wealthy commuter neighbourhoods (e.g Kingston, Richmond). Very prominent Indian population in the north-west.

North: Very mixed in terms of income, but in general, the inner city is wealthy and trendy (e.g Camden and Hampstead), and the outer suburbs have a mix, from extremely wealthy (e.g Muswell Hill, Crouch Hill) to some of the poorest in the country (e.g Tottenham, Hackney). In terms of race, there's pretty much a mix of everyone.

East: The traditional, industrial, working-class part of London. While some areas have maintained that hard edge (e.g Bethnal Green, Bow) the relative cheapness is making many areas bohemian and desirable, especially the inner east end (e.g Shoreditch). Again, very mixed, with some boroughs having no real ethnic majority.

South: Poor inner city (e.g Brixton, Camberwell, Peckham, New Cross), nicer outer suburbs. Like everywhere else in the city, there are exceptions, Croydon for one, being in the far south of London and having a reputation to be desired. Large Black Population.

These are all really generalised though; you'll find rich parts in inner south london, and poor parts in suburban west London, even rich streets right next to poor streets. The wealth gaps can be enormous, but not always seen, due to the mixing of incomes and classes. Anywhere similar to this in the US, New York maybe?

If you want a general rule on where the poorer sides of town are, it's usually where the blacks live in majority.

Uptown (northern) Manhattan, Northeast Brooklyn, North Shore Staten Island, are all poorer than their southern counterparts
Central park is not though.
