A rough run down, area in Denver, used to be refered to as the "Harlem of the West" because of it was home to one of the largest African American population bases west of the Mississippi. It was originally a very safe and calm area where a lot of the days Jazz players and Blues musicians would stay going to the west coast, eventually the neighboorhood gave way to urban decay and neglect and became a drug and crime infested area during the 70s, 80s and early 90s. The Black Mayor Wellington Webb who was dubbed as "The Mayor of Five Points" made it his mission to clean up the nieghboorhood during the 90s and for the most part was sucsessful. More mexicans and white people have moved in but it still isn't a place you would want to just roam around in.
