To me i cannot label a entire city as ghettho because somewhere in a city there is a concetration of well educated or at least people who care about their city and try to develop it to look neat. Even Detroit has some nice to okay areas( but many bad areas)

Im also suprised east st.louis was mentioned so rarely. Its lost more than 60% of its population ( more than Detroit) and its not a very large city (33,000 people) with no major companies so there is no point in moving there (unless you want to work at a casino)

Here are some pics of ESTL

Are you serious?

I personaly think that the Midwest ghettos of Chicago, Detroit, and, Cleveland are by far the worst I've seen in the states.

Pics can be included as well to defend your case...

thanks
Visually, I'd say the South Bronx in the 70s and 80s. Camden NJ looks pretty bad. NOLA looks bad. South Chicago+Cabrini looked bad in its day. 5th Ward Houston. Liberty City Miami. Watts/ELA/Rampart/DTLA.
