US Class-Divided Cities
This is from a series in The Atlantic Monthly. In the series, each map is accompanied by a lot of discussion and description. Let's see what YOU think:
Cities covered in the series are (besides San Francisco):
As far as San Francisco goes, the demographics of the maps seem to correlate pretty well with the "feel" of most neighborhoods with few exceptions. For example I don't detect much difference in the 16 block square of red (service) on the western slope of Russian Hill between Leavenworth and Van Ness from the surrounding "creative" blocks. The whole area is hipsterville.

in the twin cities (MN, where I'm from) it seems that all poor neighborhoods are close to each other and outer suburbs never have lots of problems with poverty / crime.
Along any west coast metro I've found that you don't have to be within several miles of the core city for it to be a 'sketchy' neighborhood.
so I don't know how San Francisco or the Bay area as a whole would rank when it comes to class integration.
