You are correct on that unfortunately, Northeast Rochester is incredibly poor and violent (almost 45% live in poverty there) Northwest and Southwest are also pretty bad. Buffalo has really nasty ghettos on the East and South parts. I say unfortunately because I love both cities as I grew up in Rochester and it breaks my heart to see these things happening there.

Are we disregarding danger due to motor vehicle accidents? In many/most cases, your risk of injury/death by MVA is significantly higher than your risk of being an innocent bystander victim of homicide. (Unless you're a gangbanger or drug dealer, that is.) The most dangerous town probably is some exurb full of fast four lane roadways.

Contrary to popular belief, exurbs more dangerous than cities

Scranton. Since the dawn of summer we've had a brutal triple homicide that claimed the life of one of my former friends, an elderly man who died after his throat was slit at random while walking in broad daylight on a downtown street, a home invasion in which an armed victim fought off his assailants with his own gun, muggings of university students, an M80 thrown through the window of a jewelry store, etc. 2008 has been Scranton's most violent year in quite some time.

An Average Jersey city is simaler to Buffalo??? i guess if you think about it it's kinda true because all the "CITIES" here are considered Newark, Jersey City, Hackensack, Camden, Irvington, East Orange, Edison ETC and excluding Twp. and boroughs because theyre not cities.. many Jersey cities are worse than Buffalo

hah but Bufalo isn't that bad?
Newark, NJ is bad!!!
it has a population of is about the same as Buffalo and Buffalo's last year murder count was 54... Newark was 105.

So that tells you, Buffalo is an ok town.

That's their problem...stay away from those violent creeps and don't get involved in that nonsense.

As for the poverty, those idiots! It's their problem, they don't work hard enough to get out of it, and just sit lazily having all these people help them while we work hard. Grr, get them out of here. We don't need poverty stricken people in our cities! We need quality not quantity, and there needs to be something to press these people to either try to get out of poverty, or be forced to get a job, etc - even a broom sweeping one. Just for crying out loud, put these poor people to work and teach them some respect and dignity!

Tell me the racial demographics of the city, and I'll tell you how dangerous it is. And the statistics don't lie. Enough said.
