This place does not look like a ghetto at all...

There must be people with tribal minds living there that need to be deported.

And I've never heard of a neighborhood named "west Lake street" And I doubt that thats the most dangerous area in the contry.

I love how the folks calling the south side of Chicago a ghetto forget about the west side. The west side has some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the city. If the south and west sides are nothing but gigantic ghettos then Chicago is 75% ghettos and 25% 'livable areas'.

I used to live in the very nice town of Madison, Florida (between Tallahassee and Jacksonville). With a 65% black population (out of a total of 3,000), it had a pretty significant Ghetto, including the part of town I lived in, but I have no idea how "popular" the ghetto is. People fish a lot, and there are several soul restaurants. I think I'd much rather live in that ghetto, than any of the "popular" ones in bigger cities.

All of the South Side isnt ghetto.Also certain areas are being fixed , so in the near future neighborhoods are going to be nice.

yeah outside of Englewood and Washington Park and maybe a couple more spots there is nothing on the Southside that can compare to the west side overall. The near west side where the United Center is and parts of Humboldt Park have cleaned up drastically but even those places were very very dangerous not too long ago. The rest is just business as usual.

I dont think any of those New Orleans people are actually from the Ninth Ward.

1.) Compton- One of the founding places of the Bloods and Crips; gangs that are copied throughout the country and the world. Popularized and pioneered Gangsta Rap. Let White America virtually walk through the hood with hugely commercially successful raucous albums like Straight Outta Compton. Home of N.W.A., Dr. Dre and The Game. Referenced in classic era defining movies like Boyz 'N The Hood.

2.) Queensbrige, NYC- Largest housing projects in America. Home of Nas and Mobb Deep

3.) East Oakland- A mecca of original slang and Hip Hop music. Home of Too $hort, MC Hammer (Rap's first enormous crossover pop success), Keyshia Cole, Kreayshawn and the place where the legendary Tupac Shakur claimed he got his "game" from. Bustling original culture (i.e. the sideshow).

4.) Baltimore- Popularized by epic premium cable TV crime dramas like The Wire and The Corner.
