Where is Detroit and almost every crappy town in NJ? Those places are a nightmare to me.

I voted San luis Obispo as the most desirable on that list. Second choice would be Ft. Collins.

All of it, terrifying, to me.
New England is terrifying to you?

I would hope most people realize that crime is not equally dispersed throughout a city...cities with higher crime rates can easily have a majority of neighborhoods that are as safe as the safest cities in the US. A safe neighborhood in Detroit is equally as safe as a safe neighborhood in Minneapolis.

Most crime is not random, so if you live in one of the more "dangerous" cities and you aren't involved in high-risk activities then you are pretty safe.

Like I have mentioned before in the past, am always happy to visit Boston (but never would live there) but I don't like that it is surrounded by a sea of New England all around it. Whatever that culture is in those smalltowns, I hate it.

Some of the smalltowns near it as racist as eff places and they really really make me uncomfortable. On two separate occaisions I have been called things like "terrorist" and "sand n****r" in those podunk little towns. Funny thing is I am not even Arab, or Persian, or Middle-Eastern at all. I am Southeast Asian with zero trace of Middle-Eastern ancestry.

Racism is everywhere in the world, most probably, but New England is just the place that really gets on my nerves about it because it is the only place I have been in the country and have experienced nasty little racist remarks, weird looks, and have just felt troubled being there. New Englanders are also very noticeably hostile to people outside their area, very uncooperative, very unhelpful, honestly the customer service there is ridiculously awful. Worst in the country probably by my experience.

No thanks, keep the maple syrup.
So I hate a region
