Neighborhood Segregation

leave a comment »

When we were talking about segregation in neighborhoods it got me thinking about my neighborhood in Miami. I live in a part of south Miami that up until about six years ago it was a predominantly black neighborhood. There were a lot of farm lands that began to be used to build houses and my family moved into the first development that was built. The neighborhood was not in the best condition and the mall and shops that are there were not in good condition, but as more developments were built, Miami-Dade county started a lot of improvement projects. It got me thinking that if the farm lands were not used to build new houses and the neighborhood would have been left the same, would the government have done the improvement projects. So we have to consider that the government might have a lot to do with neighborhood segregation.
