Cincinnati has several of these. I came here to mention Madisonville, a run-down neighborhood surrounded by Indian Hill, Madeira, Mariemont, and Oakley - all high-end (and in the case of Indian Hill, ultra high end).

In Queens, NY, Jamaica Estates borders Hollis.

When did Colombia become part of the United States?

Lawrence, MA is a poor industrial city
Andover, MA is a rich town mostly know for the Incredibly preppy Phillips Academy, that people such as the secret New England WASPS, the Bushes attended.

Many parts of Houston are like this. Bellaire and Sharpstown are right next to each other and largely different both demographically and socioeconomically. Bellaire is white/Asian, while Sharpstown is mostly Latino (Central Americans and Mexicans, evenly split).

The dividing line that Delmar Boulevard serves as definitely can be bad.

In St. Louis, Delmar Boulevard is the line that divides a city by race and perspective - The Washington Post

For those who have little knowledge of Baltimore, I encourage you to view the city's recently released Housing Market Typology Map.

The transition from stable to unstable happens instantaneously in this town.

Yup that's not a bad map everything from light yellow up is considered good neighborhoods and there are more of light yellow, light blue, blue, and purple than the reds or darker yellows. Thanks

Palm Beach, West Palm Beach and Riviera Beach FL. Well Palm beach proper is on an island and is ritzy as hell. Cross onto the mainland into West Palm and all along the intercoastal is quite nice as well. Go 1 block over along rt 1 and your in the hood! bad boys, bad boys! I think if it wasn't for that area Cops would have never been run

Here in the SF Bay Area, we have quite a few places like that...either directly bordering each other or at least very close to each other:

Atherton/Redwood City-

Atherton (very affluent town, one of the most expensive in CA and the country):

https://www.google.com/maps/@37.4651...BzmNYS3b0A!2e0

Redwood City (mix of economic levels, but crossing into the part of RC that borders Atherton on Middlefield Rd. is like night and day:
https://www.google.com/maps/@37.4724...7HBv_CvWyw!2e0


Palo Alto/East Palo Alto-

Palo Alto (home to Stanford University and one of the most expensive real estate markets in CA and the country):

https://www.google.com/maps/@37.4571...2Y3r_THs0w!2e0


East Palo Alto (separate city, used to be known for having the highest per capita murder rate in the nation back in the 90's!):

https://www.google.com/maps/@37.4788...ilXkUTGWXQ!2e0

San Jose has some rich and poor areas within the city that are adjacent to each other or at least very close to each other-

The neighborhoods directly east of downtown SJ are mostly rundown and dumpy:

https://www.google.com/maps/@37.3441...fDhzTAEEPQ!2e0

...and then just a couple miles away, right next door to San Jose State University is upscale Naglee Park:

https://www.google.com/maps/@37.3325...5-sAfO_XrQ!2e0

On San Jose's infamous East Side there are tons of neighborhoods that are dumpy and rundown like this:

https://www.google.com/maps/@37.3552...le1WLCe2wg!2e0 ...

...and then a mile or two up the hill, there are neighborhoods like this:

https://www.google.com/maps/@37.3471...fZQBjglhFQ!2e0

These are just some examples around the region.
