Laundry hanging on balconies is a valid sign of tough neighborhood.

What was the toughest thing today that happened there? Someones carpet fell down?

 

There are no tough neighborhoods in my city., just couple bedroom suburbs with few harmless drunks and that´s it.

Here in Bilbao, San Francisco is the hood that has the fame of being the most dangerous. It's one of these older neighborhoods, and therefore cheaper, where the immigrant population has settled in a bigger quantity than in other sites of the city, as well as other people with lower lifestyles. It has more cameras and police patroling than in any other side of the city.

 

Anyway, I live relatively far from it I don't visit it too often anymore (one of my childhood friends used to live there) but, the times I've been around, I've never felt unsafe (maybe at night my opinion could change...). Personally I think its reputation may have been exagerated, or at least, seems that the area improved with the years.

Buildings built from cheap materials in the 1970's, Gypsies, Junkies that would do anything for their dose, Drug businesses, public housing apartaments where their owners drive Bentleys and Ferraris...

If you go there at 3AM you sh*t yourself.

Seattle doesn't really have ghettos compared to other cities, but the closest you'll get to one is the southern area.

You should change the title to "The scummiest neighborhood" then. Junkies and other low life troublemakers are the exact opposite of tough.

To be tough You need a f*cking view and a discipline to achieve the toughness. I fear no scum, the scum won´t even look me into the eye.

The closest city to me is Philadelphia, which is pretty self-explanatory.  There are great and beautiful parts of Philly, don't get me wrong, but there are also some terrible, terrible neighborhoods that bring up the overall crime rate of the city. Kensington is a pretty well-known one.

Really don't find enjoyment in bragging about bad neighborhoods in Boston but this thread calls for it...

 

Mattapan

Dorchester

Roxbury

And that's only 3 neighborhoods, with many other bad neighborhoods you don't want to be caught dead (pun intended) at night, even in the day!

Hough, an inner-city district on Cleveland's east side. It's infamous for the Hough Riots during the 60s.

Another honorable mention is Glenville, which is where my dad is a police officer at. He always comes back with stories of arrests and near death experiences.

I live in one of the nice spots of Philadelphia. :pp

 

Because our city is made up of neighborhoods with little names we get some good n' scary areas with nice names.  We have a neighborhood named "Nice Town".  It is far from nice.  We also have a beautiful sounding neighborhood named "Strawberry Mansion" - that little section just celebrated getting removed from the most dangerous school list.

 

And yes...there is Kensington.  Heroin capital of the Atlantic coast.  Drug cartels and all because of it's centralized location and location to major and minor transport routs.

I take it Nice Town is about as "nice" as Nice Guy Eddie?

I wish the internet was old enough to have my all time favorite news clip archived(for sharing reasons).

Our [Phila] local news services Delaware too.  There was a story about a shooting that included interviewing some of the locals.  They interviewed this old lady and it was a close up, tight shot on her toothless, wrinkled up face as she said "cause ya never know when ya gonna get a bullet...   ... <long pause w/crazy look> ...  ... in ya face".

Easton in Bristol, England

I'd still rather go to Easton then Hartcliffe or Southmead. Snow Hill is probably the most hood (well if there's such a thing) part of Bath:

In Portsmouth where I am a lot of the time, I dunno, maybe parts of Fratton?

I currently reside in a quaint little town just outside of a city (de facto it is part of the city) of round and about 120.000 people. The closet thing to a "tough" neighbourhood we have got is a "neighbourhood" actually it's just 4 or 5 streets housing wannabe 8 - 12 year old gang bangers and some very angry pensioners.

I live in the north-eastern suburbs of Pretoria, S.Africa, so I would say Pretoria Central is one of the worst areas. Full of illegal immigrants and criminals. That includes the neighbourhood of Sunnyside on the outskirts of central Pta, which used to be one of the trendiest places up until the late 90s. Now it's a criminal hotspot and one of the biggest problem areas.

Pretoria West is also a freakin hellhole and one of the sh*ttiest areas of the city. By far... :sui:

Not to mention the informal settlements scattered around.

Pretty sure junkies are fearless and will fight you for pretty much no reason. At least the ones where I live.

I live in Hull (UK) and it's well known for being a sh*thole. We actually have a neighbourhood called "Gypsyville". That's not a colloquialism or anything, that's it's actual name. That's in the south, there's 2 scummy neighbourhoods in the north of the city called Bransholme and Orchard Park, where barely anyone works and they all have kids at 15 and drink all day and all night. Full of young men and boys drunk out their minds just looking to start a fight with anyone they can.They'll steal the sh*t out of your arse up there. 

 

I live in a nice part, it's basically an enclave surrounded by horrible places on most sides.

Are Gypsies in the UK those Irish people that live in caravans and fist fight each other bareknuckle?

We have quite a few Rough neighborhoods, no particularly tough ones though. Milwaukee comes to mind (only really the north and south side) but nobody really gets bothered with and everyone minds their business. It takes a lot to see the nastiness hidden deep in Milwaukee. Have to have lived there for a while. I lived there 20 years so I've seen it all. Although I have had maybe 4 life threatening situations I've never been afraid to go or walk anywhere. Probably just comfortable with it all.

 

 

Edit: Oh yeah and I forgot. Milwaukee is probably one of the worse places to get in trouble as a young black male lol. They don't give two sh*ts about anybody and will f*ck your record up quick on small things like possession.

Anywhere near the beach. It's literally fancy ass hotels on one side of the street and slums on the other.

Right behind those hotels are nothing but slums and middle class hell until you reach the halifax river.
