Honestly, there are sets of projects in lots of cities that are bad. Seems like folks are aiming at the big cities. There are places in Birmingham Alabama that are EXTREMELY dangerous. Orange Mound Tennessee is pretty rough too. But from my personal experience, the old NO projects take the cake.

I would say Chicago. There are projects on the South Side that are like a warzone.

Cabrini-Green used to be the ultimate example of a bad housing project but it's gone now.

But how many Chicago projects are left?

I'm wondering if New York City should "win" by default, though maybe Philadelphia could win.

Someone should start a thread for what city has the best public housing projects. That might be more helpful.

The NYC forum regularly has threads on which housing projects are the safest and how difficult it is to get into them. Not sure what implies about its housing projects, but does any other city have threads like these?

Cabrini Green in CHI was the setting for "Good Times".

Oakdale
Hunters View (aka West Point - recently demolished tho)
Kirkwood
Bernal Dwellings (aka Army St.)
Valencia Gardens (not really too dangerous anymore tho)
200 Block/Randolph
Alemany (aka the Black Hole)
Holly Courts
Diamond Heights (Addison St)
North Beach (not bad since they were rebuilt)
Chinatown (Ping Yuens - there's like 3 different ones)
Plaza East (aka OC/Eddy Block)
Turkwood
Friendship Village
KOP (forget the name of the building, but Messy Marv's block)
Westside Courts
Banneker Homes
Hayes Valley (aka Death Valley)
Page St

Then you got all the many other lesser ones throughout the City, like Clementina St., Fulton Block, etc. (Sorry if I repeated what you had put; I went through these in my head by neighborhood lol.)
Almost all of these are in the Western Addition or Hunter's Point. And most of them are small units sitting right next to each other so this list is deceiving.
