Where is the GI neighborhood you referred to? I live in Broadmoor and I never heard of it.

Speaking of Broadmoor, though I like the area, it is somewhat hit or miss. Some nicer homes with older, more run-down homes mixed it. I have start seeing a few homes get some renovation. However, it is more diverse than what one may think. It is mostly black, but a fair amount of whites and a few Hispanics have moved in.

It's literally a street over from Broadmoor Drive, right where the S Mart gas station is! There's a historic sign at Robinhood Road & North State Street that tells about the subdivision & it's purpose! All of the roads in the neighborhood are named after things from World War II, such as Normandy Drive, Churchill Road, etc.

You're really talking about my neck of the woods! I've seen the sign before, but never really paid much attention to it.

Awesome! A lot of people don't notice it, but it's quite a piece of forgotten history.

I would say a good deal of Jackson's growth post-World War Two was due to returning GIs.

I read an interesting article once about why the economy surged so much after WWII. Basically it said that due to all the forced rationing during the war, (and the long depression before that after the government raised taxes and restricted trade), investors had spent the last 10 or 15 years using their funds to pay off their debts, rather than investing to build new businesses etc. Once the war was over and the rationing had ended, and the investors having cleaned up their balance sheets nicely with hardly any debt, finally had their chance to start taking out new loans to build new businesses. And as they did, the economy began expanding.

This article was debating those who argued that spending on the war itself had somehow triggered the economy to grow, when in fact it was mainly the unintended consequence of forced rationing and the cleaning up of private investors' balance sheets (i.e. paying off their debts since there was little to invest in as long as consumers weren't allowed to buy much of anything) that opened up the opportunity for all the new investments that embodied the post war expansion.

What streets divide the Northside from the Westside? What's the boundaries for each communities? I've been using google map but wanted the locals opinion as well.

I was able to visit Jackson last month and see portions of Northside, Westside, & Downtown. I seen this map and was wondering is the boundaries of the neighborhoods accurate?

I know this is an old thread and such, but I do feel it's relevant to try and get a really good map/idea of major areas, neighborhoods, and subdivisions of Jackson. In fact, I don't really understand why Jackson hasn't made its own map of neighborhoods and such itself.

In regards to the major areas of Jackson (North Jackson, South Jackson, etc.), here's what I'd say:

-South Jackson: Definitely everything south of I-20 all the way down south to Byram's city limits.

-Northeast Jackson: Jackson city limits to the north meeting with Ridgeland/Madison County, Lakeland Dr. or the Lefleur's Park area to the south, city/county limits to the east, and I-55 to the west.

-West Jackson: Basically, everything west of Gallatin/Mill Streets and south of Northside Drive is arguably West Jackson. Several neighborhoods in this area are also considered to be part of North Jackson as well. Less commonly certain areas are either referred to as northwest or southwest Jackson.

-North Jackson: Includes everything north of Northside Drive, though many neighborhoods not within this area such as Virden Addition, Georgetown, Northwest Hills etc. are often included as well. Then you also have neighborhoods not in West Jackson at all that are often included here (Belhaven, Midtown, Downtown, Fondren).

This is my best shot as these major sides of Jackson are often ill-defined with some neighborhoods, in my opinion, should arguably be part of another area (I'm thinking Belhaven, Midtown, and Fondren should be considered NE Jackson at least, but that's just me).
