MARSHALL-RIDLEY 

The neighborhood planning area boundaries are 39th Street to the north, Hampton Roads harbor to the south, I-664 to the west, and Marshall Avenue and the former Chase Bag property to the east. 

 

Located in the Southeast Community, this neighborhood has a rich African- American heritage. Historically home to many black shipyard workers and administrators, it was once a thriving middle class residential area that grew with the shipbuilding and military economic boom in the first half of the 20th century.
