Dont forget cincinnati's OTR, its been in the spotlight for sometime as quite possibly the most crime ridden neighborhood for hundreds of miles. There have even been times when police dont enter. Also the scene of a race riot earlier this decade. Look it up ~ over-the-rhine (OTR)... Look quick though, officials are finally succeeding in cleaning it up and sending the crime to the suburbs... LOL

I live a few blocks from OTR and have spent a lot of time there. In my experience I think Detroit and Youngstown "ghettos" are more visually unpleasant. When driving through OTR you can at least imagine what was once there and what could be done with some fixing up. Detroit and Youngstown are just
messes.

That doesn't look like a ghetto. Maybe up close it does. From this perspective, it just looks high density.

Hmmm, what part of detroit do you speak of? It just all looks the same around downtown. And the density is much lower, so there is not as many people out in the streets in Detroit.

As of right now there aren't high concentrations of people in downtown cincy either with the current gentrification taking place. When speaking of Detroit "ghettos", I mean the endless lines of vacant rundown housing in what was once suburban neighborhoods. There are groups of people who consider themselves urban explorers and go to these areas to seek out adventure and treasure but normally find nothing but vacant housing with busted windows and old crack pipes!

Cincy has no areas like this and the areas consider "ghetto" here did once have some visual appeal. Even though rough looking people may inhabit OTR, I still see aesthetic potential. This is not possible in the areas I've been in Detroit & Youngstown.
