Roughly the Southern half of Mount Vernon (the North varies from middle-class to luxury, with even a "cool" neighborhood with pubs, sushi restaurants and all (Fleetwood). Again, parts of Mount Vernon are really nice and even luxurious (like the Bronx basically), it's not all messed up, and the North East Bronx is not all that bad, I would live on the border of Mount Vernon over South of Fordham Road.
Many parts of Yonkers are gritty and compare to Bronx neighborhoods like Mount Eden and Mount Hope. Downtown Yonkers is not desirable, and many areas of South West Yonkers, you have it all (ran down, drugs, shootings, MS-13 and other gangs).
Downtown New Rochelle is under revitalization that looks very much like what has been going on Downtown Brooklyn. Parts of Downtown NR are jacked up, like around Lincoln Park, however I would call it "ghetto" with quotation marks. NYC style housing projects got torn down and smaller buildings got rebuilt instead. Things still happen though, and I wouldn't live there though unless I had no other choice.
On the other hand, the Village of Tuckahoe has a small public housing complex, with no type of crime happening. I won't talk about White Plains I'm not familiar enough.

every time I see these stupid crime threads I laugh

Acting like its still the 80s or 90s lol. Moreover, the comparison is quite dumb. Its the city not a lily white picket fence suburb. If you're gunna compare crime statistics need to do a basic comparative analysis of crime with similar cities across the US. Also, it should factor in decades of research and not some simple YoY approach clickbait article. You'll quickly learn that "crime" is a commonality of city life. The NYPD has done a great job reducing it over the years significantly to the point these "poor" neighborhoods have no problem finding developers willing to gentrify it. You also have no shortage of yuppies willing to move to these crime ridden neighborhoods.

Westchester has some of the richest people in the country and some of the highest property taxes as well but yes, there are still areas that people would consider unsafe and sketchy. Then again, parts of the Bronx, like Country Club and Pelham Gardens, have houses for over a million dollars too with sketchy areas as well. To all - we (as a society) should try not to stereotype certain races/ethnicities with regards to a ghetto. I know of many poor white people in housing projects and trailers all over the US. A person's socioeconomic status does not always correspond to a particular "type" of person we are used to visualizing.
I would argue some of the scariest places are in Brooklyn, not the Bronx.

Brownsville and East New York are as bad as anywhere in the Bronx. Not that I am scared of these places, but statistically those precincts tend to have the most shootings.

Anywhere in the Bronx? So according to you the whole Bronx is like East New York and Brownsville?
Brownsville and East NY are worse than the worst Bronx neighborhood.
On the other hand half of the Bronx is middle to upper class with barely any crime.

I agree 100%, the Bronx has more bad neighborhoods and barely any gentrified area (coming soon though) but a bad neighborhood in Brooklyn is much worse than a bad neighborhood in the Bronx.

It's all the same hood wherever you go.
