compared to cities like new orleans, philly, camden, nyc and la, how bad are chicago's baddest areas? murder statistics don't say much unless they are coming from individual neighborhoods, which ive yet to find.

also how bad were they back in the 90s compared to others in the same time?

what do you think?

I've never seen ANY neighborhood in Chicago that's as bad as Camden.

The Chicago Police Department posts crime stats by "Community Area" in their annual reports. I can't say if other cities report their crime stats this way or not.

The Robert Taylor homes were said to be the worst anywhere at their worst.

You know, bad is bad. It hurts just as much to be shot in Chicago as it does in Camden.

I don't need to be lecutred about the damn Robert Taylor Homes. I'm familiar with their history, and have even been chased around by former residents. At the time that stretch along the east side of the Dan Ryan was considered one of the worst concentrations of poverty in the United States.

But seriously, go to Camden some time. The entire city looks like it's about to collapse into rubble.

Not sure but if you find out, please share.

All I can tell you is I saw on Wikipedia that Englewood had 81 murders in 4 months in 91. By its population size today, that means over 200/100k...in 4 months. I wonder what it came to at the end of the year.

Is this based on what you saw while driving through or heard from somewhere? Just curious..
