What?

That is one of the busiest areas in Harlem. The Apollo, Studio Museam, Hotel Thresa, Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building, and various stores and shops, are located near this area. Also, that intersection is where the 125 st. Subway Station ( A, C, B, D, ) is located.

Have you ever been to NYC, let alone Harlem?

Haha, I looked on the site for the #2 spot, the one in Chicago.

It's not a neighborhood, it's actually just a 4 block area that's completely vacant land except for 3-4 houses on the very southern edge of the "neighborhood".

It use to be home to some housing projects that were town down years ago, so I'm assuming that's why it was so high up on the list. Very small population, but probably fairly high crime rate.

These totally aren't "neighborhoods", they're just a few blocks of areas with probably very low populations and high crime. This throws the crime rates for the area WAY up.

Avondale is DEFINITELY the most dangerous neighborhood in Cincinnati. Not the neighborhood they talking about. It use to be back in the day, but not no more. Most murders here are in Avondale.

My guess is what crimes are being counted for this? Also places that have a lot of traffic but few residents would also make it worse than appear because the rates are likely based on number of residences.

I saw this on the internet (Walletpro)
I figured it was such a supid list to make a thread out of. Harlem is rough, but no, not #18. (especilly since that specific neighborhood is very walkable and busy)

No Camden? No Gary? No New Orleans? Whoever came up with this list was obviously too afraid to compile a more valid list
