Camden has been the most rundown ghetto topping the charts numerous times as being the #1 worst city in America with crime.

Camden is disastrous.. The whole city is pretty much this. No lie.





to answer your question, yes i have been to camden several times, just driving through. wasn't scared at all, i believe east cleveland is as bad as camden, and irvington, nj is actually more dangerous than camden and chester, pa is worse than irvington. chester, pa or east cleveland are the two grittiest places i've ever been through.

You may be right IYO
I bever been to Chester but i've heard it's bad, but to be honest, no city scares me. It's just a matter of what's a dump/ghetto
And vtw, that picture youposted with the 2 men infront of the check store.. How is that slummy lookin?

Camden
East St. Louis
Detroit
Are all both ghetto and run down.

Irvington as you mentioned is VERY dangerous, but Irvington isn't so much rundown. It's just a ghetto

i didnt post that picture of those two dudes, that was someone else. st. clair in eastside cleveland, my old stomping grounds is like a huge version of camden. there is trash everywhere! the houses are literally tilted and falling down and there is average 2-4 murders every week. east cleve, eastside detroit, youngstown, north philly, irvington, camden (i was actually going to move to camden before i settled in hartford), gary, northend hartford (where i am right now, ghetto as hell) are all ghetto and decayed, but there ain't a reason to be scared of these places.

My trip through the ghetto was great no crazy stares (my car sits on 22s- in order to get a crazy stare in the hood you must ride 24s or higher- I did get a few glances though) I fit right in- nothing for me to be worried about right? If there was a problem I'll just pull the gun from up under my seat and start shootin'

I've never been to Irvington, though I drove through Chester about 4 years ago, stopped at the KFC too. Talk about being the object of attention! LOL

I remember someone taking me through San Diego's "Hood" and I couldn't help being from Milwaukee and laughing. You call that ghetto I said, wow is all I have to say.

Those are just pictures of East Cleveland, and pretty much the entire city is a ghetto. Its basically just a continuation of the Eastside Cleveland ghettos.
