Mainly because of Whitcomb and Gilpin Court, two infamous projects that alone make up a good percentage of Richmond's crime statistics.

Let's see:

Creighton Court
Fairfield Court
Gilpin Court
Hillside Court
Mosby Court
Whitcomb Court

^^ all are projects/public housing... all have a disproportionately high crime rate. Crime, and more specifically violent crime, tends to be concentrated in and around public housing in Richmond.

Thanks I knew there were far more than those 2, but my recall failed me. I think i picked the worst of them though.

Most of the dangerous neighborhoods end with "Court".. such as Crighton Court, Gilpin Court, Fairfeild Court, and so on

I missed the Glen Allen post but when I used to live there it was fine. The crime you read is likey others coming there and commiting them. The actual neighborhood is fine though.
