I know that third world and 1st world are cold war concepts.

But, with that said, I'd nominate New Orleans.

I don't think any other city outside of the US even comes close in the developed world.

Is that because Of Greece's perpetual economic collapse? Ala Argentina?

I haven't been to Athens. Does it have a lot of beggars or what?

I prefer to compare cities. Less Developed nation: More Developed nation

Tijuana / Ciudad Juárez : St. Louis
Cape Town : Baltimore
Caracas : New Orleans
Kingston : Memphis
Culiacan : Detroit

Interestingly, the most dangerous cities in the world are in nations considered to be more developed.

I don't know about that.

Many migrant workers in places like Dubai, Riyadh, etc. live in conditions that are worse than the worst areas of New Orleans. You could even argue the same about hundreds of thousands of people living in "cage homes" in Hong Kong.

Might be a data issue. I am always surprised Port-au-Prince isn't on these lists. Then again, Haiti is a failed state, so maybe there is nobody collecting the data.

I thought about Port-au-Prince as well as Mogadishu and Sana’a. Also, Guatemala City and Ciudad del Este, but I think they’ve actually improved in the last 20 years.
