I'd rank Belle Glade and Pahokee at the top with Riviera Beach coming in a close second. Then there's the Pleasant City neighborhood of WPB (probably tied with RB). Don't know exactly where that is and I'm not about to make a trip to find out.

Regarding West Palm, Boynton and Lake Worth, there are a few bright spots in each of them. I've been to Lake Avenue, CityPlace (and some of the surrounding areas) and some places off Ocean Ave in Boynton. So, I'm not totally lumping them into the bad category--just know to stay out of the not-so-nice areas. Delray falls into this as well. It's weird to be going along Atlantic Ave and see how quickly the area changes. It's like there's an invisible line painted on the road.

I think I've passed through South Bay a few times, but can't remember much about it. There's a sugar company based there, right?

Pahokee is also a Farming Area, my parents own land there next to the lake so it is not going to be some bustling City Walk Metro.
Belle Glade hosts many of the people that work on nearby farms, so good job being judgmental. Let's see how good your place would look if you worked in the fields in that heat. I guess by 3rd world you mean there are Mexicans, Jamaicans and Haitians living there.

Really Belle Glade Is Number One.its A Fact Not An Opinion.the Rest Can Fall Into Your Own Belief.no Where In Broward Looks As Worst As Bell Glade And Some Of Dade May Be That Way Like Liberty City But Not Nearly As Worst As Belle Glade Cause At Least They Have Alot Of Job Opportunities And Walmarts And Movie Theaters.belle Glade Dont Have These Things.all They Have Is Factories, Fields, And Football. The Only City I Would Rate Close To Belle Glade Is Fort Pierce.

No, I mean there are run down buildings, unsafe areas, high unemployment, huge residential and commercial areas where the people that live there don't take pride in it's appearance, litter, loiterers, vagrants, drunks, drugs, shacks, dogs running loose, and the like.

It's also not a city, but a rural area.

And you're right-I am being judgmental. That's the whole point of this thread.

Why is it there's always one guy who tries to make everything about race or ethnicity?
