Really? Both cities looked nice whenever I've been by. Or are they bad compared to the surrounding cities? But then again I'm just a tourist, what would I know?

In my state - Ohio

East side of Cleveland isnt pretty at all. There are a few areas of Cleveland that I would stay away from. Youngstown is just awful. Some parts of Dayton are all abandoned and crime-ridden. The east side of Columbus has gotten bad the past few years. I hear some parts of Cincinnati are too but I dont know enough about that to comment on it

The city declared it a war zone a few summers ago. You have to look per capita.

Since Youngstown was brought into this, I'll clarify. Parts of the South and East sides are dangerous. Most of the city's murders happen in the hot spots on these sides of the city.

I don't know the east side's "hot spot" that well. But the south side's hot spot could be defined as the area bounded by Market on the west, South Ave. on the east, Midlotian on the south, and Indianola on the north.

I don't mean to imply that the rest of the city is crime-free, but it's worse in these areas. The crime rate in the rest of the city is comparable to many midwestern cities.

lol here's the thing. bad cities around san diego county would still be considered golden when compared to detroit, east st, louis, newark, gary, etc.

oceanside is nice, but it has its bad days. escondido is nasty in many areas.

The Eastside of Cleveland/East Cleveland is the worst area crime-wise and look-wise in Ohio. Youngstown is bad but its not as urban though. Cincinnati has some bad areas too. Columbus has some bad places but nothing close to the others.

Also Milwaukee is not near the most dangerous city, not per capita either. The worst areas of Milwaukee are West/NW of downtown. The North Central area is one of the nicer areas of the city. Ive never hear of declaring part of a city a warzone? If one was then Detroit/Cleveland/Baltimore would have huge areas declared warzones way before Milwaukee would.

Which part of your town or state will you go out of your way to avoid?
I should have avoided this city altogether but anyway^

I would say the worst known sections of Philadelphia are north and west.
