NOTE: This website is designed to be interactive. Information provided is the culmination of work of over 70 anthropologists at Urban Anthropology Inc. In some cases oral histories and archival data were collected. In other cases full documentaries have been created. But in many cases, only small amounts of information have been gathered. We ask the public to provide additional information (if known). Please send any additional information, corrections, or resident quotes to JFLanthropologist@sbcglobal.net.

This website will take two to four years to complete. Please check back each week for newly added neighborhoods.
