That's certainly true. It is interesting how Milwaukee has not been phased by the crime perception the way Memphis has. Both cities could improve race relations and youth crime statistics.

Yes, Milwaukee's crime is very concentrated compared to Memphis.
It's also cleaner, better built, and better maintained overall.
I like Memphis. It has a ton of potential, has a lot of cool areas, but has historically suffered from more widespread poverty and indifference towards preservation.
People in Milwaukee are less likely to abandon perfectly good areas en masse for newer neighborhoods just for the sake of moving to a newer area, like you see in many parts of that region of the country that Memphis is in.
That kind of behaviour is nonsense.
Memphis has a lot of blight in places that were built as recently as the 80's and 90's.

Yeah a lot of things have closed down since the 90s. Memphis continues to lose population despite some positive economic gains.
