The other half of Englewood (3rd and 4th wards) is almost completely Black/Latino and mostly lower middle-class or lower class citizens.
The 3rd and 4th Wards of Englewood are distinguished as the "bad side" because of its reputation for crime, drugs, alcohol, and its evidently cruder living situations. Guns aren't a neccessity as it isn't THAT bad...but it aint that good either.
On a brighter note, Englewood is the hometown of rap legends "the Sugarhill Gang" who created the first hit hiphop record "Rappers Delight". Englewood is also the hometown of rappers Serius Jones and Lady Luck as well as actor John Travolta.
My pops grew up in Englewood and said its the best town to grow up in if you want to see "all the different spectrums of America".
Some delinquents in the 4th ward stole $150 from my brother when he went to the corner store.
Benny's Dad went back to Englewood after 55 years and was upset to see how bad it had gotten.
