Default Worst Cities/Areas of VA

Hi everybody! Sorry if this has been asked before, but I searched around and could not find a thread discussing the worst cities/towns of VA. I made the mistake of placing these threads on the individual VA boards.

Where would you never want to live?
Thank you

I would say that the East End/Downtown area of Newport News, Va due to high crime and a lack of value of life.

Danville, Martinsville, and just about any other town east of Danville and west of Suffolk on US 58.

I lived in Fredericksburg for a year and it was by far the worst town I ever lived in and I lived all over the country! It was BORING, Over Priced, congested and full or rude and unattractive people.

That is why I suggested an entire region of the state as opposed to just one locality!

1. East End of Newport News especially, but I wouldn't want to live anywhere in Newport News.

2. Portsmouth

3. Park Place area of Norfolk, the Norview area of Norfolk, certain parts of Oceanview, and South Norfolk

4. Southside of Richmond

5. The Lake Edwards area of Virginia Beach (the neighborhoods off Newtown Rd and certain parts of Virginia Beach Blvd)

thats crap. Danville is a great place to live, The people who say different are not cultured or intelligent enough to see beyond their backyard.

like many small towns in VA it has suffered economic diversity and challenge. I am impressed how well city planning is handling this growth. So many people, intelligent, professional, etc moving to this area from large metro areas (me south florida) why? Because property and taxes are lower. You have access to almost everything you want and need yet still in a small town. The people are the nicest people I've met anywhere.

Judge for yourselves and consider the quality of the post you read. Don't listen to someone that "heard" in a forum. Or the guy that obviously has no good sense but to talk badly about something he knows nothing about. Investigate, look and talk to home and business owners that see what Danville has to offer.
