The national rankings you will find around the internet almost always list Cleveland as the worst of Ohio cities. Youngstown, Dayton, Cincinnati and sometimes Toledo make it into them as well...but yeah, definitely Cleveland. They usually make the top 10 for the entire nation.

The main crime ridden areas in cleveland is EAST CLEVELAND. Most other areas are perfectly safe. Parma, Shaker, Middleburg, Strongsville...etc are all great to live and safe safe safe

Clevelands a great city and a great area but its very crime ridden. Thats not even including all the cities with crime outside of it (East Cleveland, Lorain, Elyria, Euclid...). They named Cleveland 7th most dangerous in America and on the top 101s on city-data Cleveland is on the crime lists a lot, even with the murders way off for 2006 and some other crimes were not reported to the FBI right, if it was correct Cleveland would be top 15 in pretty much all categories of that even with every city in America over 50k included.

Youngstown is just a small Cleveland based on crime, the murder rate is higher but the rest of the crime is higher in Cleveland I think. Cincinnati is bad too, but not on nearly on the level of Cleveland and Youngstown. dayton is bad and its right up there with Cincinnati. The rest of the cities in Ohio arent that bad though. Columbus, Toledo, Akron are basically about average.

The past couple years Columbus has had more murders than Nati....People would say it's bigger or something, But not really....when they count Columbus's population and do crime stats....Most other cities don't do that

I grew up in Columbus and have been in Cincinnati for over a year now. The crime in Cincinnati is no worse than Columbus. I have no use for all of the different statistics people are referencing to make a case in either direction. All you need to do is check the local news in both cities (which I do daily) to see that the overnight crime developments are almost exactly the same in both nature and frequency. People seem to think that there is no way Columbus, with it's bright white collar class could be down at the level of a city that borders Kentucky and that has a substantial blue collar population. They are dead wrong. Just because the good in C-bus is "Ohhh so good" doesn't mean the bad isn't neatly tucked away at every corner. Columbus does an outstanding job of sweeping less desirable elements of the city under the rug. Look at The Campus Gateway Project. Walk one half mile east on 11th behind the new structures there and you will not want to stay very long.

what are you talking about? my opinion is cincinnati, and of course on this blog opinions are cool unless they disagree with folks with stoic reservations. i know plenty of people from cleveland and lorain that think cincinnati is a worse city to live in with a more visible presence of filth, blight and crime. move on outta that bubble, folks.
