The legendary South Side is home to rappers like Boosie and Kevin Gates, but only has a few hoods compared to the city’s North Side.  South Baton Rouge hoods are Cross Da Tracks, around Roosevelt and Garfield streets and west of Hwy 30, the SouthSide Bottom, an area along Highland, Uptown, along Government Street aka G Street, Valley Park, around College Drive and I-10, Gardere Lane, and Mayfair, around Staring and Hyacinth.

The North Side is the largest section within the streets of the Baton Rouge ghetto with many Baton Rouge hoods along Plank Road like CC Lockdown between Choctaw and Chippewa, Bogan Walk, Dixie around Mohican St, Boot Town around Evangeline Street, McDonald Land around Denham, and Zion City.

Other North Baton Rouge sections are Easy Town off North Street between 22nd and 33rd, Banks Town off 72nd, Mall City off Florida on Harry Drive, Sherwood, BirdStation, Fairfield around Foster and Fairfields, Parktown near Gus Young and Acadian Thruway.

To continue, Ghost Town around Foster and Winbourne, Brookstown around Evangeline and Hwy 190, Glen Oaks around Glen Oaks and Silver Leaf, Scottlandville and Baker and Port Allen.

Even though the media might consider people who are affiliated to the neighborhoods, to be part of Baton Rouge gangs, the city does not have any gangs.
