This is a comparative study of four diverse neighborhoods in Washington D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York. Diverse census tracts are contrasted with less diverse census tracts in order to find physical similarities among communities that meet social and racial criteria for diversity. Characteristics of the physical environment are examined in order to learn more about the structure and form of these neighborhoods. It is hoped that some of the elements consistent with these communities can be implemented in the design or planning field to encourage diversity.
