A fence between Hamden and New Haven traps the city’s poor, exposing 21st-century prejudice.

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus‘s insight:

"The projects are walled off on three sides. Across the street from the fence in Hamden, a racially mixed neighborhood where the median income is $71,358, a green Jaguar rests in the driveway of a boxy, colonial home next to two decorative Christmas deer. In the New Haven projects, where average income is $12,989 and almost all residents are black, low-slung apartments decay between patches of broken pavement."
