Not one California neighborhood in the top 25? I’m surprised.

Based on 20th/21st century American history I’d say there’s a neighborhood in Hyde Park that has been dangerous far out of proportion to these others.

Guess Atlanta is a complete and total hell hole. Gee, I wonder why. Also interesting: the most dangerous DC neighborhood is adjacent to the Navy Yard, where they are spending billions to create “outdoor spaces,” as well as the Nationals stadium. I am surprised, I thought it would be the Trinidad neighborhood and points northeast.

Hmmm....a lot of the neighborhoods are near MLK Blvd. Gosh, what are the odds?! Maybe crime would drop if we quit naming streets after MLK...?

I never drive into the city limits of Atlanta without benefit of my Smith & Wesson 45 Colt Revolver with at least two or three speedloader’s worth of backup.

21. Galveston, Texas
Neighborhood: Church St.
Found within ZIP code: 77550
Predicted annual violent crimes: 84
Violent crime rate (per 1,000): 88.1
My chances of becoming a victim here (in one year): 1 in 11

.....................
Funny this supposed neighborhood was public housing that was wiped off the map by Hurricane IKE. How old is this info anyway?

Yeah, I saw this the other day here.

Hard to believe that Detroit doesn’t have one in the list.

I don’t pay too much attention to the news around here, but it’s not like you hear that much about murder in C Town these days.

Not like years ago.

Actually, California ghettos are more laid back.

I’m originally from Jersey, and the ghettos there and in New York were WAY worse.

I live in Long Beach and have been to Compton, Watts, South Central and Inglewood. They are not nearly as scary as Newark or The South Bronx.

North Las Vegas is where a lot of black L.A. gang members moved after Hispanic immigration pushed them out. Not at all surprised to see the area well-represented on the list. Every caucasian LV resident knows never to go near D Street or East Fremont.

I guess this is a matter of opinion. I would venture into Newark (Not near the courthouse, no way no effing how) and South Bronx isn’t that bad to me - But I will NOT travel down the highway through Columbus OH anymore.

Those are black areas - especially D Street (note the presence of a Martin Luther King Blvd nearby) - though there are similar Hispanic neighborhoods on the east side.

With Hussein and his buddies moving to DC, you’d think Chicago would have dropped in ranking.

I work not too far from the Orlando neighborhood, and it’s definitely undesirable, but I have a hard time believing that some of the Miami neighborhoods are better.

MLK Blvd., MLK Ave., MLK Parkway, etc., have a distressing commonality in that invariably they are in a bad part of town.

Does Anacostia count in the Navy Yard stats? BTW, don’t miss your exit to the Navy Yard, the next one is five points in Anacostia.

Maybe Detroit has been depopulated to the point that the really bad neighborhoods have dissolved.

Kind of like Youngstown.

“I live in Long Beach and have been to Compton, Watts, South Central and Inglewood. They are not nearly as scary as Newark or The South Bronx.”

CA is very disorienting. I worked in east LA and would drive through neighborhoods that looked like the Brady Bunch housing. I was driving through the Bloods and Crips territory. Just don’t find yourself there after sunset. Back east, you know immediately when you are in the wrong part of town 24/7.

Good question. It seems that they've completely forgotten about LA, San Francisco, New York, Miami, and dozens of other cities. I'm not saying that these are not bad neighborhoods - 55th and Scovall in Cleveland is well known to locals, as are many other neighborhoods.

Did you notice that all these neighborhoods rank high on being “hip and trendy.”

So it seems high crime goes hand and hand with hip and trendy.

I’ll just leave it at that.

I'd like to see a national map showing the crime rate superimposed over the voting tendencies of the area. I'd bet that there's an almost 1:1 correlation between "democratism" and high crime.

That area of Ft. Worth, TX has been bad for decades. Back in the 80’s I had to go in there to research some HUD homes. Went armed, found stolen cars hidden in garages, drug houses, you name it.

The whole report is silly. I checked out major Texas cities and found city-wide they are more dangerous those in the article. If these are the numbers for the city as a whole, imagine what the numbers are for the bad parts of town.

Rio Bravo (because Nuevo Laredo wouldn’t work) - Chance of being a victim in this city: 1 in 7
McAllen - 1 in 9
San Antonio - 1 in 9
Austin - 1 in 11
Brownsville - 1 in 11
Dallas - 1 in 11
Corpus Christi - 1 in 12
Ft. Worth - 1 in 12
Harlingen - 1 in 12
Lubbock - 1 in 13
Houston - 1 in 15
El Paso - 1 in 24

Anyone believing the numbers for El Paso? I’m not.

I know this is rediculous.

What did someone do sit at a computer and just make stuff up.

The neighborhood they list is non-existent.It was public housing and still hasn’t been rebuilt.
The people around there were interviewed and said since the PH is gone they have very few problems.HUMMMMM

No, it doesn’t. Anacostia is farther northeast. Navy Yard is south of 395. I missed the South Capitol exit once and had what felt like an anxiety attack until I got back to civilization. Also: driving on East Cap years ago had to detour, got lost, ended up in one of those neighborhoods off Minnesota Avenue. A kind woman pushing a baby carriage told me when I stopped at a stop sign that it wasn’t safe for me to be there driving around by myself, and how to get back to where I needed to be. I took her advice.

That's right...

In fact, I've been the "Over the Rhine" area of Cincinnati, OH, which appears really bad, and super run down compared to what you mentioned.
