Most segregated cities

April 3, 2011

When I discovered these cool maps of urban segregation by Eric Fisher last year it was like a revelation. Rachel (who has had to listen to me blather about them ever since) spotted this piece in Salon, “The 10 Most Segregated Urban Areas in America.” Fascinating. DC (pictured above) didn’t break the top 10, but the patterns – west of Rock Creek Park, for example – are pretty striking.
