Bankhead!! Which is a neighborhood in west Atlanta.

Also, College Park is notorious.. near the airport.

I almost forgot "the SWATS". A backronym for South West ATlanta.

Many famous rappers hail from those neighborhoods.

College Park? Sounds like an upscale area from its name. There must be a story there...

I'm gonna take that tip on Louisville to heart. Hopefully the spike in murders there in 07 were just a unique thing.

To add a couple of areas for Virginia. Inside Alexandria City, the Arlandria neighborhood. Springfield, close to the Springfield Mall (some 18 yr old girl and her kid got raped just today there.) Richmond, the North and South sides.

It will be interesting to see with more comments on this subject just which sections of the united states show the most bad/dangerous areas.
ummm well the question was "what are the bad areas of your city/state?" so anyone should answer even if their state isn't that dangerous relatively. I guess southerners just aren't answering.

I listed the bad areas of MA but I still would feel safer in them than a bad area of Atlanta or Houston.

Most people may think of neighborhoods in the Bronx or Brooklyn when they think of NY, but there are far more dangerous places in NY state. The Northeast quarter of Rochester is the worst for violence in the whole state. Rochester, I am sorry to say, has the highest murder rate in the state amd the NE quarter is a huge reason why. Hate to see that happening to the place I grew up
