7th Ave Northside. The historic black neighborhood in my city. The "Harlem" of Black Northside & Sandfield will be it for the Black Southside. This location is where you had all the performing mainstream black artists, businesses, & culture during the heyday of Jim Crow. Queen City Hotel use to sit on the corner of 15th & 7th Ave & was one of the few lodgings for out of town Blacks. My city was the Black Mecca for this region of the Sipp back then.

Miami has 70k blacks in it. Less than 1/2 of Bostons black population.

Miami is 15% black. Id guess its only 6-7% African American.
Actually i meant Carribean communities portion to South Americans.

So, a lot of the area’s black population is more spread out among many of the other smaller places in the metro area/region.

You have to have a real appreciation for Damon's sense of humor, use of sarcasm, use of cultural references, etc. to fully get where he's coming from. I enjoy pretty much everything he writes and I plan on buying his book when it's released a couple months from now.

Hes funny but sometime he just reaches. Its a little hard for me to enjoy a piece about Pittsburgh being the blackest city in America-its just too much of a reach and he knows that.

It's an intentionally hyperbolic piece. I thought that was obvious.
