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.
+1, Correctamundo. I just moved out of one of those areas.

Disgusting?
From the Parkway, EO and Irvington don't look that bad visually (from the parkway anyway). The city has nice architecture, they were once middle class cities until crack took over.

Now the turnpike can be disgusting. Elizabeth-Carteret-Linden, egh.

Thats East St Louis in general and Chicago neighborhoods Im guessing... Dolton seems to be going downhill a little bit too...

I travel alot and I have family and friends in some of every city in America. I visit alot of them regularly and have lived in alot cities. For those who do travel to alot of places here is a general list of some of the roughest parts of cities Ive been to or heard of. Not trying to put anyones neighborhood on blast, but for tourist some of these places one should be very careful if they visit. Im only naming a few....

New York City - Bedford-Stuyvesant, Flatbush, Crown Heights, East New York, Redhook, Southside Jamaica Queens, South Bronx, (I would not say Harlem in general being there has been alot of changes since I was last there, but East Harlem still seems very dangerous especially around the Robert Wagner's close to where I stayed at while in Harlem) there are more of course, but Im just naming a few....

Los Angeles - Watts, Crenshaw District, Imperial Courts, Nickerson Gardens, Jordan Downs, East LA, MacArthur Park...

Chicago - Englewood (lived there for a while) Humboldt Park, North & South Lawndale, East & West Garfield Park, Roseland, Austin, (parts of Pilsen and Rogers Park are considered Dangerous) Woodlawn, Over East, Jeffery Manor, Auburn/Gresham, Back of the Yards, (parts of Bronzeville that havent been gentrified yet) Some of the Southside Suburbs such as Harvey, Chicago Heights, Calumet, etc...

Detroit - Eastside, Brightmoor, Highland Park (actually is another city) parts of the Southwest side... Most of Detroit's Eastside & Westside is very dangerous, but some streets would be McNichols & Wyoming, Schafer, Dexter, Mack ave, Livernois, Davidson, Linwood, Joy Road, Fenkell, Grand River, Schoolcraft, Outer Drive, etc...

Others in general

Miami - Overtown, Little Haiti, Liberty City

Atlanta - Bankhead, Mechanicsville, Cleveland Ave, Memorial Drive, Edgewood (going thru some major gentrification) Decatur (Flatshoals, Gresham, Candler Road) Vine City, Cascade Road (East of 285) Campbellton Road, Pittsburgh, etc...

Dallas - OakCliff, Pleasant Grove parts of the Westside

Fort Worth - Eastside, Berry Street, parts of Seminary Ave...

Houston - Third Ward, Fifth Ward, McGowen & Live Oak, South Park, etc

Washington DC - Anacostia (I actually got lost at night once on Good Hope & MLK) most of Southeast DC, Barry Farms, Northeast, the area around Howard University... parts of PG County inside the Beltway....

Orlando, FL - Washington Shores, Carver Shores

Dayton - Westside, Dunbar area, Third Ave (parts of Trotwood)

Columbus, OH - Eastside

Cincinnati - Over-The-Rhine (was actually rated one year as the most dangerous neighborhood in the US)

Cleveland - Glenville, Kinsman, 105th & Superior, East Cleveland, Hough, parts of the west side

Toledo - ONYX, Northside, The Old South End, Weiler Homes, Brandwhitlock Homes, Central Toledo... (Toledo's crime rate has drastically increased in the past year, however in 2007 this city had the lowest murder rate in the midwest for a city its size)

St. Louis - Northside, Euclid & Page, Kings Highway, parts of Southside closest to Downtown...

Norfolk, VA - Olde Huntersville, Tidewater Gardens, Park Place

New Orleans - Third Ward, Central City, Uptown, Lower Ninth Ward

Flint - Northside, Hamilton & Saginaw, MLK...

Again this is a list of places Ive been to or lived in or have friends and relatives from... This is only my knowledge

Granted southeast I believe is only 100k ppl give or take a few thousand


High crime rates, associated with drug trade, reached a peak in the 1990s. In 2005, 62 of Washington, D.C.'s 195 homicides occurred in the 7th District of the Metropolitan Police Department, which also includes the neighborhoods of Barry Farm, Naylor Gardens, and Washington Highlands. This figure is down from the 7th District's peak of 133 homicides in 1993.[5]

Which part of your town or state will you go out of your way to avoid?
I'd say that Kansas City and St. Louis are probably a tie.
