It was originally a narrow corridor from 22nd to the 31st street but expanded over time and stretched to 39th to 95th. One of the reasons that these kinds of neighborhoods were growing was that after world war II when most of the veterans left and there were lots of job openings for poor black families looking for a better life in the north. Most of the damage was in the blackbelt, leaving over 1,000 homeless. Some homes that were not in the blackbelt where bound in a contract that made it illegal to buy or rent to a black person.

Similarly, “Mag’s trademark was her ability to bite of rowdy customers, and she displayed these anatomical trophies in a pickle jar up on the back bar.”(Slayton 19), the influent loons who had lived in the era and were historical characters were present through Amsterdam’s life as well. Though after ruckus upturned by the gangs, street names were changed and Little Water Street was deleted, in order to clear the slum and undergo the demolition of a “shameful” part of history.
