Park Hill Kudos

Park Hill has been honored as one of the ten best neighborhoods in the nation.

The linked story only alludes to the fact, but Park Hill is notable as one of the few middle class, mixed race, old neighborhoods between Chicago and Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, in Las Vegas, in connection with an upgrade of I-15, the city has permanently closed F Street, a major arterial linking one of the city's few predominantly black neighborhoods (on the west side) to downtown and to government buildings, by walling it off. This has prompted outrage as an effort to further isolate and segregate the city.
