Most dangerous area in your city?

84 posts in this topic

Id have to go with either Sulpher Springs or Suitcase city (university) areas of Tampa, Fl. I was at steak and shake the other night in S Springs and 2 small kids tried to pull a knife on our table, then ran out. Interesting area lol.

I think Pine Hills aka Crime Hills and Paramore are probably the worst areas in Orlando. But you can get taken in many different neighborhoods here. In Kissimmee where I live is also pretty bad now, they have crack heads running the streets all up and down 192, some dude got murked right down the street from me a week ago. Lots of drugs going around here.

How can you love I-4? I avoid that road at all costs.

The most dangerous part of Huntsville is Southwest, especially along Governors Drive west of the Parkway. Though the city has had only 16-17 murders this year, most of them have occured there.

Pretty much any area that begins with North, South, East, or West and ends in "Nashville" is the "bad area" since these are the areas immediately adjacent to the central city.

That probably holds true in many cities.

In Tuscaloosa, West End is thought of as a high-crime area and is often referred to as the Wild Wild West.

In Augusta, the worst neighborhoods are Bethlehem, Turpin Hill, Laney Walker, and East Augusta. Lots of burned out and boarded up shot gun shack homes and businesses with raisor wire around them. In Atlanta, the neighborhood of Pittsburg was ranked the most dangerous in the country a couple years ago. Other areas there are Bolton, Vine City, Mechanicsville, parts of Summerhill and Peoplestown, Bankhead, East Lake, Lakewood Heights, Adamsville, ect...

InFayettvilleNC it is Grove street, south-east of DT and of course DT-northeast to MLKAlso there is a little section of the city called Boonie Doone that is notorious. Here in Vegas it is north nellis, east Craig in North LV. Main street to north Las Vegas BLVD, west Charleston, north boulder Hwy. Its funny because the safest place is the strip.

Louisville Rd, West Savannah, parts of east Savannah and parts of Garden City are the worst in the Savannah area in my opinion, but there are many others. I think the entire city of my hometown Birmingham, except for probably parts of Huffman and Southside is dangerous. Birmingham was ranked the 10th most dangerous city in America and for good reason. Huge murder rate for a city with only 240,000 residents.

I suppose the answer to that depends on whether you are referring to crime, drugs, or road/driving dangers?

In Winston-Salem I would say just East of Downtown (the numbered streets, like E.5th, E 21st, etc.) or the Waughtown/Sprague St. neighborhoods. Oh, and don't forget Liberty St.

The most dangerous area in any city is any one that has Martin Luther King Blvd. attached to it. Often, MLK Blvd. takes you deep into the ghetto. Frenchtown in Tallahassee is still considered by many locals to be the most notorious part of Tallahassee, even though the criminal element has been driven out due to revitalization. Ebony Gardens projects, formerly located at Macomb & Fourth Ave got knocked down due to old age & violence/drug traffic.

In New Orleans, parts of Uptown along Martin Luther King Blvd. MLK Blvd takes you through New Orleans' most notorious wards: 3rd, 10th, 12th & 13th. Many murders and rapes go down in those parts.

Here in Bristol, I would say it would be in the old downtown area- at least at night. This is when a lot of tramps come out- especially in the late evening. On my way home from work, when I would not get off until late evenings- (around 10pm), I used to travel that way home. Street walkers can be seen on the sides of the street and bums walking about. I started going a different route after it started getting too bad. Anyway, now I do not work evenings.

Also, just to the north of downtown are the "projects", which are also unpleasant anytime of day. It is a fairly large area. I stay out of that area all together, as I have no need to go through there. We used to travel THROUGH this neighborhood up until the early 1990s, when my great grandmother was still alive and living on the north central side of town. Going through the projects was the quickest way to get to her home- which was in a very nice neighborhood, despite being close to the projects. You would think in a city with a population of 43,000 - it would be pretty safe, but I suppose most all cities have bad areas. Also- just west of downtown there used to be another set of railroad tracks, now they are not in use, but some abandoned warehouses are still there- there is also a small field between the warehouses where a lot of tramps live. This area is referred to as "The Jungle". One of our local TV stations went down there and interviews some of the tramps, some of which were living in boxes - men and women. This is pretty close to a supermarket complex and they are often in the parking lot, panhandling money and begging. When they are not there, the go across downtown to the east side of downtown and to the shelters and Salvation army and gather about on the streets and downtown. Also, north of the "jungle" is another area called the "hole" where more tramps live. Mostly a swamp, but they seem to like it there.

Also, same can be said for the other two cities in our metro area- Johnson City and Kingsport. The old downtown areas and projects seem to be the most dangerous. I know for a while (probably still) that Johnson City had a big problem with tramps causing problems in the old downtown area.

Also- you have to watch on the freeway entrances and exits -at least on I-81 and Century BLVD. Often, a lot of tramps/bums on the side of the road, with "will work for food" signs. I have heard people offer them work, but they decline- because they simply want money. Once, we saw one leaving from the spot with the "work for food" sign, only to get into a brand new truck and leave. This is unacceptable.

Knoxville is the next closest big city and if I recall, I think the east central side is the most dangerous area? Someone that lives in Knoxville may be able to verify.

I am sorry to keep referring to them as "tramps", but this is the nicest word I know to use for them.

When I lived in Lakeland Florida the generally acknowledged dangerous part of town was the north side,particulary the north west part. 10th street was pretty infamous,in fact all the numbered streets from 1-10 (south to north) were pretty hairy. Those streets were bordered by South Florida and were pretty much the border of the ghetto.
