Early 90s: DC, Philly, Camden, Newark, Bronx, Dorchester. Late 90s: Baltimore, Hartford, Camdem, New Orleans, Memphis. I had a good friend from LA, living in Bmore who told me that he had never seen ANYTHING comparable to the East Coast ghettos in LA.

Comparing what? Housing, streets, crime rate? LA to this day has some areas that rival the worst areas in the U.S. in murder rate.

in this day and age - Podunk USA see's murder all to regularly - does murder equate to a bad area anymore?

In the 90's? What about Detroit ... friggin' cops used to carry long barrel hand guns and that scared me right out of there!

Someone said late 90's New Orleans? the cops were bad then ... there were federal investigations about cops killing a lady for reporting her eye witnessing a cop killing a drug dealer and cops caught guarding a warehouse full of cocaine (back when Marc Morial was mayor)

New Orleans was worse in the early 90s. We peaked in '94. Shorly thereafter (forgive me for forgetting the exact timeframe) we hired Richard Pennington from New York who promised that within a year he would cut the murder rate in half. That he did was a pretty amazing feat, even if you consider that this happened at the same time that crime nationwide had finally come off its peak and had started on the downward trend that most of the country enjoys today.

Ok. I think Antoinette Frank may have been early 90's too. Admittedly, I'm not sure.
