Nope. Those areas would be considered lower middle class by Eastern and Midwestern standards.

I did not find any ghetto's in Austin Texas. San Diego and Seattle are pretty safe as well for big cities but crime can find your anywhere you still have to be careful.

Has East Austin become completely gentrified?

Boise, Idaho and the treasure valley as a whole (pop. 665K) doesn't have any rundown areas and is has incredibly low crime. You would be amazed what people in the valley consider high crime/ ghetto.

"high crime and ghetto" part of Nampa for example: https://www.google.com/maps/@43.5766...7i13312!8i6656

That would be an unofficial Tent City or Nickelsville (named after former mayor).

There is an official Tent City that moves around to a different community every 6 months or so.

Thank you for not saying Tacoma (which has some actual run down areas, but not the entire city which is a common misconception around these parts).

San Diego, El Paso, and Denver. All 3 have significant dumpy looking areas but are among the safest big cities in the country with nothing close to resembling a real ghetto.
