Point is, even tho the area that once had a problem gets better, alot of other areas get much worse. In my hoods case, alot of ppl moved to other projects, cheap housing or even some to the "suburbs"(even tho these ones as bad as the inner city).
are you from the cabrini green?if u r lol where did most of those GD'z go?.....i wonder if some of those vouchers is to peoples nation hood's....lol...

These lists are all relative. You goto any city and it has it's dangerous areas you just have to know where and where not to go. I personally have been to #2 St. Louis, #11 Orlando, and #24 Buffalo all in the last year alone and hadn't had a problem with any of them. It's a poor representation of what a city has to offer when you can just slap a label like "dangerous" on it without really breaking it down.

It's true that the everyday citizen just visiting any American city most likely will not have a problem, but living in one of those cities and growing up in one is totally different.

Exactly, but it's still all relative. You can live in Detroit your whole life and not be exposed to what one would consider "dangerous" activities. The city I use to live in was at times "The Murder Capital of Canada". Most people would consider that dangerous. I never felt that way, and even now statistically speaking I live in a higher crime rated Territory versus where I use to live this place is far from dangerous. I guess it depends on what one considers "dangerous" and their tolerance to be around it.

Here's how skewed it can be at times.

DC's crime per 100,000 people = 6,230.3 ranked #1 in America
Yukon Territory's crime per 100,000 people = 22,197 ranked #3 in Canada

Now, is where I live more dangerous then DC? I highly doubt it, but it's about perspective really.

Its all who you know and pure luck.

And when I mean pure luck I mean just being in the right place in the right time, or the wrong place at the wrong time, however you wanna look at it.

I was right downtown. I stayed at The Drury right next to the Arch. I was on training so I was walking everywhere. I didn't get to see much of the city aside from right downtown. I'll probably be there again in the next year or so.

yea i kno ...the media makes people feel like the hood is " gang bangers, prostetutes, drugs, and eveybody wana smoke everybody"
wen there is alot of people that work jobs, there is alot of nights with no gun fire..and drivin thru wont have u in some danger, unless its the wrong time of the day.......yea people get killed but its not like an everyday thing like the media puts it.

wen i say i live in southwest houston at work everybody is liek wow really ...everyday someone is gettin killed there, all those gangs, crips and blood, GD's, MS13, how do u guys live there...im thinkin damn the news really has these foo's trippin like its IRAQ in the SWAT but it really ain...most these bloods and crips here arent even bout that trippin stuff

yeah downtown is a nice place...you might see a homeless people but thats it....almost every downtown in a city is a facade of the rest of the town...well in the U.S. it is....

Basically. Cities will make their abandoned store front look "nice" to not scare anyone.

For example Gary, Indiana:

I used to work with people that did dirt and was friends with a few people that did but I wanted to go in a positive direction so I stopped hanging out with them and I have no idea what happens in the city anymore, I have to rely on the news which only tells about 20% of the story.

But even when Im out and about I have stumbled into stuff.

Yup dats ma old hood, the greenz up til 06. You rite that most of CG was GD(includin my old building) but there was CVLz n Mickey Cobras too. Most of the ppl who didnt get accepted back into the new condos moved down here to the south or to the west side of chitown, but there is some who moved out fo the city to places like G.I. and the burbs. Im guessin most of the gangstas joined sets in their new hoods...not sure if they vouchers was for people/folk hoods tho lol

To me these lists mean nothing cause alot of these "Most dangerous cities" are only on there cause of per capita an alot of them have nice ass areas to live in them. Sure places like camden an compton yeah, the whole city is raw but most of them are not like that. I bet you could find some dangerous hoods in some cities that even make the top 25 most safe cause a city is only as dangerous as the neighborhood your in/around. If you live in the richest, an safest neighborhood in Newark NJ how can you claim to be from a dangerous area even tho its a dangerous city per capita?

NY is going thru some major gentrification....dats all i hear from people there or videos n shit

the thing is, where are all the poor people going?

Instead of fixing the problems all they do is push everyone out, move some rich people in and say "look all fixed."
All the poor ppl are going to South BX. There trying to make that the one big hood in NYC. Pushing out all the poor folks from Harlem an Bed-Stuy Brooklyn.
