Default Re: Where's the scariest hood in America?

from the places in the states i've been, the worst areas were probably in new orleans and brownsville in brooklyn. i didn't find harlem to be all that bad when i was there (i was out at night around central harlem pretty regularly too) but i'm sure it can be at times. i didn't venture to the bronx but i heard from some dudes that sth bronx and hunts point are dodgy

The hoods in New Orleans and Memphis were always crazy, but I never felt spooked. I would walk around dolo with no probles. Little Haiti on the other hand is the only spot that I have ever really felt uncomfortbale in.

Trenton, Camden, Jersey City, Newark are all gross.

Parts of Philly are definitely real hood like Kenzo.

Out here by da bay people tell me that Richmond is pretty rough and tough.

eh, ny doesn't have anything too bad anymore. When i was young it was like Escape from NY in some areas, but now there are way scarier places. We got lost once in NO for like 2 minutes, that was mad scary. Everyone is just standing, scoping you out. Philly has some nasty places. Orlando funny enough got some scary neighborhoods.

Kenzo? what is that? kensington?


I dont know, I wouldnt fear walking around up there except that maybe somebody would try and pull some sneeky sh*t like I girl I knew told me some guys tried to throw acid on her from a moving car once up there......

Ill say I dont feel comfortable in:

Tasker area in South Philly and I used to hang around there but it was touchy... Kids just sitting at the playground cleaning their guns and sh*t... that always made me nervous...

parts of North Philly at night.......... Logan, parts of Germantown ave are just too much for me to be hanging out. Im good in the west oak lane section. Its hectic over there, but I know alot of people...

Camden I always get nervous in Camden especially where the Puerto Ricans are because some of those cats dont like black dudes (especially fly black dudes nailing little miras on their block)... I went to a couple parties over and hung out a little and never felt comfortable at all... I stayed ready for the rush...


S west Philly, and West Philly Im good in... thats the rest, home, the crib... I dont hang around the bottom or Mantua or nothing like that, but other than that... Im straight in West Philly

Yeah it is. I've only been up there once. I was going to mellon arena a few weeks, but I had to hit up at ATM first. I get out of my car and I could FEEL all of these eyeballs just following me.

Braddock isn't that great either, but it's more run down than it is dangerous. I spent some time there for a job I had last Summer. I think it gets a bit of an undeserved bad rap.

Same with Wilkinsburg. Very run down, but not really as bad as people make it out to be.

Wouldn't want to live in either of those places, though. I live in Monroeville.

Detroit is nasty. We had to stay their overnight (flight got cancelled) and where they normally tell you in the airport where you can hang out in a city they are like "do you really need to go out? We recommend you stay at the hotel and don't go out, and if you go out, don't go HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE or HERE.
