Aren't there nicer areas of Long Beach, too? I know the city's reputation is as a working class port city (I have never been there) but with well over a 100,000 people there HAS to be a nice side, too.

THey usually have no yards, and often times no driveways, the roads are bad-but there is little to no abandonment little tacky advertising and fewer guns stores (none) and liquor stores than most US ghettos. There is a little bit of foliage but not a ton. Some part of Roxbury Dorchester and Mattapan look middle class some look pverty stricken. Overall its middle of the road hood stuff. It doesn't help you'll see people collecting cans and stuff into shopping carts on residential side streets. And the singing/dancing junkies you can see on some main streets.

Parts of Hyde Park and East Boston are rough to look at too.

Stamford's ghetto is in fact quite nice. But I dont know if its really a ghetto or just the lower middle class part of Stamford..

Troy, NY and some parts of Schenectady, NY come to mind. There's a few areas of Albany, NY that have sort of gentrified but are still less than ideal to live. That whole region is sad but at least the architecture is preserved for the most part, even in the poorer areas.

In my town of Manhattan Beach, the ghetto (east of PCH near North Redondo EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW) looks moderately decent, but I try not to venture over there. Someone may scratch my Tesla.

Most of the city is nice. Don't be fooled by this site. A huge chunk of it is laid back, beachy communities.
