Houston does clearly have some neighborhoods for people based on their religions and sexual orientation as well as.... Where do young professionals live in Houston?

but I'm still not ready to call it.

But I probably will.
Houston has no neighborhoods based on Religion.


We do have a gay neighborhood, but you think it is only gay people living there? No Montrose is probably 75% straight. It is the area where a higher than average gay owned businesses are located though.

As for areas like Chinatown. Chinese are in the minority there. You will find way more blacks, hispanics, whites, Vietnamese, Indians etc there than Chinese, so I don't get your point in ruling it out as if it is a one race enclave.

Maybe I'm not understanding that chart or maybe the city has changed in the nearly 20 years since I lived there but the place used to be racially segregated by a river. One race on one side, one race on the other side. Aside from that, it was pretty jumbled.
There are still segregated parts of the city, but that it's less segregated than many others. 28.7% of residents live on integrated blocks. To me, that sounds pretty low, but it's better than most cities.

I'm not a fan of people referring to neighborhoods as cities.

I wasn't picking on you, yours was just the first I noticed.

I never referred to a neighborhood as a city. I referred to a specific area within a whole city. And when talking about New York City, you have to be more specific when talking about where to move.

Like Manhattan, San Francisco has many different neighborhoods... A neighborhood for each and every person. There's no question that as a whole, the city is very diverse however people are not jumbled up, they are in their respective neighborhoods. For example, The Castro, Chinatown, Mission district.

Play again?
The Richmond District, Pacific Heights, the Tenderloin (though it's a dump), Excelsior, Bernal Heights, Lower Haight, Western Addition, etc etc etc are all very, very diverse neighborhoods.

In my apartment in the Inner Richmond, you had latinos, white hipsters, an Indian family, a black couple, and a Chinese family, and a couple interracial couples. Within a couple blocks of the place in either direction, you had Mexican, Indian, Korean, Brazilian, American, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, and Italian restaurants. Two blocks. And that's not even a well-known, premiere area of the city!

Now, if you're looking for a city that doesn't have ANY ethnic/religious/social enclaves... well, good luck: it doesn't exist. Some places are just more integrated than others.
