Easy:

Cleveland, Detroit, Youngstown, Flint, Gary, Baltimore, New Orleans, St Louis, Memphis, Camden, Newark.

Doesn't get any worse then listed above.

Cleveland is at around 30% for poverty. It was America's poorest city... which Detroit took over I believe. Also last for median household income at $24,000.

Cleveland had 130 some murders last year, which for a city of around 400,000 now, is quite pathetic and sad.

Cleveland led the nation in home foreclosures as well.

Typically, the most dangerous and highest poverty stricken city are those in the midwest. It's due to all the manufacturing/other factory jobs leaving the region.

easy addition w/ accuracy: minneapolis, hartford, nashville, cinncinatti, los angeles, new york city, portland, dallas, houston, phoneix, kansas city, and several others that fail to report to the agency reporting the above.

This thread was two years old (June 2007) and someone commented on it and poof - here it is again. The thing is, all of these topics are being discussed in current threads on some level regarding bad conditions in cities, etc. So we don't need to dig up something from 2 years ago to rehash what's already being talked about currently in several. For future reference for newbies, post dates can be found in the corners of each post, and the "search" feature in the forums will allow you to check to see if the topic is already being discussed. Thank you.
