High poverty, frustration in unincorporated central Broward
No city will take in this orphaned area of the county
Like a 32nd city in Broward County, but with no city hall to turn to for help, an unincorporated pocket of central Broward is one of the neediest areas in the county.
The statistics are not pretty. Poverty reigns, property values are depressed.
This area — north of Broward Boulevard, south of Oakland Park Boulevard, between Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. and Interstate 95 — was a leftover scrap when the surrounding cities incorporated.
