I don't think any of the east coast cities is dangerous. Miami does get the huricanes but you usually have plenty of warning. On the other hand the west coast gets earthquakes and you never know when the big one will hit.

Harlem still has it's rough parts. Especially around the projects. It is still the hood in 2008.

331 violent crimes per day are carried out in NYC.
57 violent crimes per day are carried out in Philly.

Both numbers are staggeringly ridiculous but I dont care that many many more people live in NYC, the fact remains they have 100,000 more crimes per year then Philly.Per capita statistics when involving violent crime do not work for me. Its merely a convenient tool to camouflage a major problem.

To single out Baltimore,DC,Philly as being violent when NYC had almost 3x as many of crimes committed by Philly,Bal,Dc combined is a bit disingenuous. Is it not?

Using that logic, California is the most dangerous state. California has been the murder capital for 50yrs now. No state has passed Cali in murders for years. But if you look at it per capita then most will say its not that bad just like NYC.

I would say Hartford CT, Springfield Mass, Philidelphia NJ, Rochester NY, Baltimore Maryland
thats just my opinion but springfield and hartford have been on the fbi crime list for the past couple of years and Roxbury Boston is a pretty dangerous place

Camden is by far the worst.

Bridgeport, Philly, Buffalo, Newark, Irvington, AC, and Baltimore are all not safe either.

Philly

Baltimore

Some of Prince Georges County Maryland.

Some of bad s*** in or around Savannah GA.

Jacksonville is the murder and rape capital of Florida.

Opa-Locka, Miami Gardens Yes, West Palm Yes, and you should add Riviera Beach which is north West palm. And parts of Broward County like pompano beach.

For the southern half of the eastern coastline, I would probably add in some more of Florida, South Carolina, maybe a couple other spots in the Hampton Roads VA, and bits and pieces of North Carolina. I try to go by what I have seen personally or what I have driven through. I don’t know...... South Carolina has this weirdness in the state that just sticks out to me.....Plus I was just reading 11 of the top 25 worst public schools were in SC. I’m glad I didn’t go to school there It makes me wonder who the hell makes decisions for SC, because they are doing a really bad job of it.

Overall anywhere in the USA my pick for overall worst in every category...........Birmingham, Alabama....That place is a giant trash can.
