Not meaning to attack you, but that is completely false. The worst areas by far in NY state are all in or right around NYC. Right now and historically, the Bronx alone has had areas that are much worse than any area in NY state, they make Buffalos worst areas look nice. As far as crime, there are still really dangerous areas in NYC, specifically areas in the South Bronx, South Queens and Queensbridge, North and East Brooklyn, and Uptown Manhattan(although that area has improved a lot). Dont let NYCs murder rate fool you, there are neighborhoods in the city with many many times that rate, much higher than any other place in NY state. Just to correct you.

In Massachusetts, I'd say:

-Areas outside of downtown Boston like Dorchester, Roxbury, and Mattapan, and maybe Somerville and parts of Medford
-Lowell, although I think its gotten better over the years
-Leominster and Fitchburg (or at least thats what I've heard)
-Parts of Brockton
-Areas of Springfield

In Atlanta, the Pittsburgh neighborhood was rated the most dangerous in American a couple years ago. I remeber being on school field trips and being told to get under our seats because automatic gunfire was going off! Clayton County is probably the most crime ridden suburb of Atlanta.

Chelsea and Everett are essentially rough areas in Boston too. Other cities in Mass that might make the list are Lowell, Lawrence, Brockton, New Bedford, Fall River, Springfield, Holyoke, Chicopee.
How could you forget Lynn?

I haven't seen anyone mention one of my favorites, Gary, Indiana.

Anyway, as far as I'm concerned, there is no area in Pittsburgh that is "Dangerous", but then I guess it's how you define "dangerous".

Unfortunatley, with the departure of the steel mills, a lot of small towns along the rivers have become run down, and inevitably crime has crept in.

In the city itself, in 2008, the North side of Pittsburgh seemed to be the most active crime wise. We can't forget the "Hill" District (yes, the focal point of the former tv series "Hill Street Blues"). On the east side of the city, we have Homewood that has been notorious for murder over the years, and the borough of Wilkinsburg.

For Maryland it's very very very easy Baltimore, but it's being said the Prince George county will surpass Baltimore in crime in the near future!!!
