Inspired by boredom and a previous NYC forum "Roughest looking street corner in NYC courtesy of Google Street Views", I wanna know what you guys think is the roughest looking street corner in the U.S (vacant lots, overgrown grass, vacant buildings, graffiti etc). Also this is not meant to bash or insult any city, every place has its good and bad parts.

If you pan around on that one, it looks like a pretty decent neighborhood, just happens to have a house that is abandoned and neglected.

Interesting. The homes just around the corner look pretty hospitable!

Yeah I noticed that as well. I think some of those may have just been built not too long ago they look pretty good.

Looking at these street corners makes you wander why they haven't done a full revitalization of these areas most of them are practically deserted.

The answer is always money (mainly tax dollars).

People tend to associate roughness with the older, grittier industrial cites. In the sunbelt, the rough areas are just as rough, but resemble shanty towns. For example, you wouldn't want to be in this corner of Orlando: South Orange Blossom Trail, Oak Ridge, FL - Google Maps.
