Trenton
Atlantic City

NJ is one big cesspool.
Alpine, NJ (most expensive city in the nation)
Brick, NJ (The safest city in the nation)

So yea ok, coming from the Bronx, i would think a clothespin on the lips would be necessary.

But yes, NJ's major cities aren't the greatest, but it's where the poor go when they can't afford NYC or Philly (therefore we have Newark and Camden)
But among the worst, Camden hands down is the worst with Baltimore, Philadelphia, Buffalo and Newark close behind.

Can't forget about Connecticut's cities though either, Bridgeport, New Haven, and Hartford.

(for me, all the cities I mentioned are livable BESIDES Camden.)

Come on now, Newark has its days, but it's murder count has almost cut in half over the years along with it's overall crime rating... I still have no clue why people have such fear over Newark but can say Buffalo is a great city, when in reality, Buffalo is worst!
The main thing i'd worry about in Newark is being robbed of my car, Newark has the worst auto theft crime rates in the country, but other than that, enjoy yourself and see what Newark has to offer, you'd be surprised to find some really shiny hidden jewels... I used to want nothing to do with Newark until I went on a class trip to a museum there and was shocked of how false the stereotypes are, Branch Brook Park in Newark tops as one of the most beautiful city parks in the country IMO, even it's cathedral is comparable to NY's St. Patricks, and Newark is so rich in history it's a shame how such a little amount of people realize it.. Newark is by far one of the most underrated cities in America... Who says you have to dodge bullets in West Newark or go through the airport and refineries to experience Newark? that would be an idiot move don't you think?

-Charelston
-Atlanta
-Richmond
-Memphis
-Birmingham
-Miami
-Orlando

It's really a pointless discussion, since the majority of crime occurs between people who are familiar with each other (especially relating to gun violence). Random attacks dont make up the majority of violence.

You are right but there's a lot of random violence as well.

You're right; random violence occurs everywhere, including cosmopolitan cities.
