That doesn’t look very drastic. The hood you show there doesn’t look very hood at all...it looks just like northwest Tacoma but with a few smaller houses and drier grass.

S
Boston’s hood look pretty comparable to DCs... more so on the side streets than the main streets. That being said Mattapan Square looks very hood by any definition. It’s literally only dollar stores and liquor stores in old squat brick building with dirty sidewalks and litter...now Milton to Lower Mills is a different story.

Also the Lawrence to Andover is a more drastic change than Lowell to Andover.

I dunno, these two census tracts are, respectively, 88% white vs. 55% white. 11% vs. 26% child poverty. To me at least, the lack of maintenance in the second area is immediately visible.

The second area is a just a little less white than the country at whole (55% v 60%) and with noticeable higher child poverty 26% vs 20%) looks lower middle class for PNW but also looks middle class for some other parts of the country. I just definitely wouldnt call it drastic. The basic form and style of the neighborhoods seemed extremely similar.

yea i didnt use an illustrative link. it's too bad i'm not able to edit the post anymore. it's actually one of the highest crime areas in the city if not the entire southeast.
anyways plenty of the area looks more like this:

besides that the bad areas here don't always really look as bad as they actually are.

the red X is the bridge i'm talking about

Though on second thought, the change from the bougie, gentrified parts of the South End to Methadone Mile is probably the quickest and most drastic economic transition in the Boston area, imo.

I wonder how safe the part of Grosse Pointe immediately bordering Detroit is, if Detroit criminals like to target that area, or if the police protect that neighborhood very well so the point that the criminal element from the city is afraid to cross the line, pun intended!!!

In the Baton Rouge area, going from Baker to Central is like night and day but not as pronounced as these videos from Detroit.
