The Two Sides of Georgetown: How Socioeconomic Boundaries Divides the City

Hannah Barrueta Sacksteder, Environmental Studies Program

Georgetown like most cities in the United States has two very different experiences for its inhabitants. This project will create a map that represents the two Georgetowns and the reason for their existence. The city of Georgetown is divided upon economic lines creating a boundary for daily life which manifests into the city fabric through buildings such as supermarkets (i.e. HEB), schools, business, parks, and residential areas. This research will map out socioeconomic data collected by the census representing each side of Georgetown, and reflecting the key elements in each one. This project looks to answer these questions: How do these two Georgetown(s) differ and in what ways do they interact 
with each other?
