Yes I guess I had never heard of it either but I guess it makes sense why the school name now

I thought that area was Fort Washington.  I've never heard it being called Friendly, but apparently it is.

Actually parts that most think is fort Washington is called friendly has its on zip code. It's one of them deals like how Hyattsville runs to Landover so towns could be called either. Very interesting I always wondered where the school naming came from

Are these the richest communities. ... "Or simply the richest NEIGHBORHOODS"?

There are plenty of places where folks simply own clusters of big houses together ... but that doesn't necessarily make it a true "community".  Sometimes it's about more than alotta people with nice wages living behind wrought iron gates &/or fences & walls.

It is, to me,the richest neighborhoods (at least for Maryland )

Kettering and Woodmore are developments, not cities or communities.

Woodmore has/had a lot of athletes, entertainment and business people living there.

Kettering is in Largo, Maryland and Woodmore is in Mitchellville, Maryland  which is close to
Mitchellville, Maryland which was developed into several neighborhoods from farmland.

Interesting that they separated Ladera Heights, Baldwin Hills and View Park / Windsor Hills. Those communities all run together. I was just down there Monday night at the Baldwin Hills / Crenshaw Mall Rave theater to see the Wedding Ringer. :nod:

I was there last week . I like the Windsor area more than Baldwin Hills , where the homes appeared on top of each other.

I thought the movie was replaced with a Chase Bank.

When I saw this I was thinking...."what is he talkin' about?". Then it occured to me.....................................you're talking about the old Baldwin Theater that used to be on La Brea! Man, that theater has been gone for probably fifteen years now. :lol:

I'm talking about that Magic Johnson Theater.........that is now a Rave Theater..........at the Baldwin Hills / Crenshaw Mall. ;)

PROFESSOR SAYS BUYING A HOME IN A BLACK NEIGHBORHOOD IS HARMFUL TO WEALTH BUILDING?

Regardless of what that article says, wealth building is not the ONLY reason I would choose to live in a Black neighborhood. I don't mind if the house doesn't appreciate AS MUCH as a White neighborhood. I just don't want it to DEPRECIATE. Trust me.......................those folks in Ladera Heights are not disappointed with the return on their investment. One of my sisters classmates from medical school bought a house in Ladera Heights right after they graduated. That was right around 1997 / 1998. He bought that house for $250K. I looked it up on Zillow.com last month........................it's now worth over $800K. Need I say more?   ;)
