I'd choose 5th Ward and 3rd Ward in Houston because those hoods have a lot of history behind them.

Exactly. Any of us, not hooked on drugs, well educated, work experienced, would be able to live safely and comfortably in a ghetto.

Well El Paso isn't terrible, but the metro area is because Juarez is part of that.

I'm most familiar with the NYC ghettos so i would have to pick it.

Harlem, which most people are afraid of half to death, isn't terrible.
