Next, you need to define what you mean by "unsafest." Highest murder rate? Overall violent crime rate? Subjective feeling of creepiness? What?

Finally, you should answer a question that has already been posed to you: Why do you want to know which is the least safe neighborhood out of four geographically dispersed cities?
Yes, its hilarious.

Instead of focusing on desirable areas within their budget which is what normal people do, for some reason the SF-O forum attracts people who are fixated with areas with high crime rates. Peculiar to say the least.

The most obvious mistake in this post is that the terrible incident referenced occurred in Allendale, not Maxwell Park.

I'm honestly having a hard time understanding your desire to buy a home in areas that you seem to feel are the "unsafest". Seems counterintuitive, especially when you seem to know so little about these areas that you lump the entire city of Oakland in with small neighborhoods in SF to ask for a comparison.

I did go to Old Oakland, Chinatown and JLS those are very tiny segments of Oakland that do not tell the whole story and if you think those area's are safe you're sorely mistaken. Just do a crime spotting search.

Tenderloin is becoming gentrified, or at least the parts now called South of Market....

As an aside, when did that moniker start showing up?
