not denying that the crime rate in Orlando isnt awful, its pretty bad in Ocala, too.
However, in terms of infrastructure/nasty neighborhoods, all the places mentioned in the NY/NJ area are so much worse than anything Orlando can dish up.

I actually had a parent of mine from the south Bronx, who moved to Orlando, and then back. He told me about their family's problems and why they moved to Orlando, and why they moved back. His teenage son got shot in Orlando and they didn't know the person. He saw his son die right in front of his eyes when they were out one time. Said it was terrible down there, and that the south Bronx is safer, if you can believe that.

You know, those videos posted of NY are from the 80s. I hope you're basing it on your experience in NY, and not just on watching videos.

Oh man that's very sad

To answer you're other question I have been in rough parts of Orlando at night, it was a little run down but it wasn't scary, people were just walking around making noise.

Ford Heights/East Chicago Heights looks pretty bad, at least what's left of it. Unlike a lot of you, I haven't visited other cities less well-to-do areas, or have family/friends/aquaintances in several ghettos to which I can refer to.

Not at all, I have been going to NY since the late 60's, (with my parents) and then on my own since the early '80's. My last trip there was 9 weeks ago, to help my cousin get her house in Southhampton ready for the summer rental season.
BTW, I am so very sorry about your students tragedy.
I truly believe that part of Orlandos problem is the fact that the powers that be have a tendency to ignore whats under their noses until it spirals out of control, and then do nothing about it.

Appalling, I'm kinda glad I was born in the 90's (which were still bad but it was towards the end of all of this).
