This is why there are stereotypes about the North being segregated, take a look at these maps of Northern cities:

Very clearly defined neighborhoods populated by one race or another. Specific boundaries and very little if any intermixed areas.

There is where a lot of your stereotypes come in. In Northern cities, blacks and minorities tend to be relegated to one area, usually divided by a road or other geographic feature.

In the South, the lines are usually blurred. Yes, blacks are often in one part of the city, but often times there are no clearly defined boundaries and a lot of mixed neighborhoods around the transition areas. In general, there are a lot more mixed neighborhoods (as someone mentioned, divided by income more than race).

Houston:

There are a few Southern cities that mirror the North in terms of segregation, New Orleans for example:

In the city of Philly the biggest is probably where I grew up in Mount Airy, Philadelphia-considered by some civil rights groups as the first successfully integrated neighborhood in The US, where neighbors banded together in the 1960s/70s to fight blockbusting and racial real estate practices. Today the neighborhood has just about an equal amount of whites/blacks and is fairly wealthy and very educated.

Others include where I live now in Germantown and even East Falls/Roxborough and parts of West Philly and South Philly.

The University City neighborhood of Philadelphia is very well integrated. Or at least it was when I lived there, 20 years ago. I assume it hasn't changed, but I don't know that for sure.
