I guess the OP wants us to come up with our personal top 10. Well (in no particular order):

1) Brownsville, Brooklyn
2) Morrisiana, Bronx
3) River Park Towers, Bronx
4) Flatbush, Brooklyn (maybe, I haven't really been around there in some time)
5) Washington Heights, Manhattan (SOME areas, its really come along way)
6) Rocaway, Queens (again, some areas, its kind of coming along)

Well, I can't think of any other 3 right now.

River Park Towers has a really high crime rate, but it's not a neighborhood.

I would not say the Rockaways are coming along. I lived there for seven years (moved away in 08) and it's terrible. Isolated pockets and areas closer to the tip are ok, but there are still vast stretches of vacant lots and boarded up shop fronts throughout the peninsula. Honestly, if it wasn't for the beach I'd consider it the most depressing part of NYC I've seen (though Mott Haven is bad too). NYC's rectum imo.

I'll just add a few to your list

East NY, BK
South Jamaica, Queens
University Heights, BX(I think it's a really bad area not 100% though)
East Harlem, Manhattan

If by "Rockaway", you mean Far Rockaway, then I can see why its on your list but if you mean the entire peninsula then I'd say no. The peninsula is not one collective neighborhood, its made up of several and the West End (100th PCT jurisdiction) has consistently had some of the lowest crime in the city and also has the most expensive street in terms of real estate sales (in Neponsit) in Queens.

Yeah, that's why I had it up there. It's very ghetto but there's parts of it that has improved. Its mostly the new houses by the beach though.

Yeah, University Heights is complete garbage. I lived there before, I hate that place. Ugh. East Harlem is also complete garbage as well. Though parts of it has been on the rise and it's slowly becoming gentrified, there's
pockets of it that suck.

Since we decided to feed this topic that hes been posting non-stop on here you might as well have a legitimate top ten... For the record, ugly areas don't necessarily equate to bad... And right now I'd put Southside slightly over Far Rock. Neighborhoods seem to be going in opposite directions... Also from what I've heard, University Heights has its fair share of problems but isn't necessarily a bad area...

My top ten

1) Brownsville, Brooklyn
2) East New York, Brooklyn
3) Mott Haven, Bronx
4) Morrisania, Bronx
5) East Tremont, Bronx
6) East Harlem, Manhattan
7) Central Harlem, Manhattan
8) South Jamaica, Queens
9) Far Rockaway, Queens
10) Bed-stuy, Brooklyn (Despite the improvements, area is still real bad and crime has increase alot this year in both precincts)

Other areas that can arguably be put in the top ten in no specific order:

1) Flatbush, Brooklyn
2) Bushwick, Brooklyn
3) Soundview, Bronx
4) Hunts Point, Bronx
5) Crown Heights, Brooklyn
6) Port Richmond, Staten Island

I think this post can put this one to rest......he can use the search function to satisfy anything else.
