For Cincinnati, I'd say Avondale (the main neighborhood that separates the University of Cincinnati and Xavier University campuses) is the most dangerous.

There's a large collection of neighborhoods on the west side of the Cincinnati that may be more impoverished and rough looking (Price Hill, Fairmount, English Woods, Millvale, Cumminsville) but these neighborhoods don't have the quantity of publicized shootings/homicides that Avondale has.

Would you say that Avondale has more publicized crime due to it being between UC and Xavier, therefore having more targets of crime?

Booker T is one of my favorite wrestlers of all time, shout out to another Houston representer. He's right about SP, it's extremely ghetto. It was ghetto back then, still is to this day.

Property either Austin/Garfield Park or Englewood.

The areas had 25% of the murders and less than 7% of the city's population.

The entire East side of my city is dangerous but it's mostly gangs shooting at other gangs. If you aren't in a gang or doing bad drug deals you will most likely not be a violent crime victim.

Nicetown (ironically) and The Badlands (not ironically) are two pretty terrible neighborhoods in North Philly. Go to pretty much any neighborhood in North Philly not immediately around Temple U or the Delaware River and you'll likely get a "most dangerous" neighborhood.

In Baltimore, it's Sandtown-Winchester, a neighborhood in the west central part filled with lots of blighted rowhouses, some sketchy urban renewal development, and vacant lots. It was infamous for the 2015 Freddy Gray riots along its northern portion. It averages over 130 shootings a year, and is likely on the way to being an urban prairie, with poor services to be found. Other dangerous neighborhoods that average at least 20 homicides a year include Belair-Edison, the second most dangerous and a lot of displacement from blighted and still dangerous Broadway East just down Belair Road. Other dangerous hoods include the Midway-Homestead corridor south and west of Lake Montebello and Clifton Park, Mondawmin and Upton (next to S-W), and a swath of west Baltimore between Gwyns Falls and around Carey Street, sadly once a nice middle-to upper middle class area prior to white flight starting in the 1950s. Baltimore has some surprisingly no-go areas on the outer reaches of the city, including Central Park Heights (the ribbon of dense development between the Pimlico race track and Druid Hill Park), Frankford (sadly this was once a nice area as recently as the 1980s and mirrors Near Northeast Philly), and Brooklyn south of the bay that feels like where the displaced people in that other city moved over to.

This link is an interesting map in terms of safety if you ever venture to Baltimore. I've noticed ones for Philly and NYC had a four or five-color system. Generally speaking, gray neighborhoods are green, beige is yellow (there's usually a certain block or two that causes the trouble), golden yellow orange, the next two deeper shades of orange a red, and deep red are purple (avoid at all costs). Note that while downtown is red, I'd consider it orange during the day and within two blocks of Charles Street.

I live in northeast TN. There is nothing truly awful where I live. There are areas with a lot of drug use and property crime related to that, but you're not going to get mugged or shot on the street here.
