New York does not seem segregated to me. There are neighborhoods that are truly multiracial and bars that you will find avery possible race. Interracial couples in New York are a common sight.
I do not think New York falls under the category of a racially segragated city.
If you think about New York has always been very liberal and even at the beginning of this century Harlem was a multiracial cultural center.

Default simple, chicago

84 percent of the African-American or Caucasion people in Chicago would have to move to another census tract in order to create a homogeneous city (among those two ethnic/racial groups). That's the worst in the USA.

From what I have heard, it is.

I don't want to turn this into a "bash Omaha" thread, but one should take a look at Omaha's history.

Major cities all over the USA have some form of segregation. Cities were formed during segregation and had policies causing segregation of one form or another. Yes, the Civil Rights movement changed alot of policies and made law-sanctioned segregation and discrimination illegal. With that said there are still remnants of it today. People still have inclinations to live in certain neighborhoods.

Basically.....This was the case in the North and like others might know, most of the most segregated cities in the US are in the Northeast or Midwest. Actually, most are Great Lakes cities too. Detroit might be the worst.
