Interesting..not one neighborhood from a city west of the Rockies. I thought there would be at least one hood from Oakland or Richmond, CA on there.. Where is this list from?

This list has already been posted on city data, as well as a few other forums...and the general consensus is that it's completely wrong for the most part. A lot of the areas listed are not even close to the most dangerous in their respective cities...not to mention quite a few high crime cities are left off the list completely. Oh yeah, and it's from a website called "walletpop" so the list probably didn't have much credibility to begin with.

True. Dallas neighborhoods aren't even the worst in Texas.

One statistic, still a bad way to represent a city. Even a few bad neighborhoods does not make for a bad city. Chicago pops up a bunch of times, but how much of the city is still safe to walk?

I don't even think that's the most dangerous neighborhood in Cincinnati.

Sounds about right. Like rah said, that list has no credibility.

Both of the Dallas areas are the same neighborhood. Why didn't they just say intersections? Oh and not to have ONE neighborhood from the Westside of Chicago is laughable.
