What is going on everyone how about we talk about neighborhoods that same people try and avoid on this channel we've gone over the worst things about states cities towns zip codes airports my cousin's wife and other horrible places we also did a few videos about bad neighborhoods in different cities and people really seem to like them so i thought today we would just look at the country's worst neighborhoods the harsh reality is we have some places in this country that probably should be vacated fenced off and forgotten about what I love about these videos are the two type of people that comment on bad neighborhoods the first are the people that say it isn't that bad and I don't know what i'm talking about because i'm not from there the only thing I can say to that is stop typing numbers don't lie the second is the person that attempts to look hard and gain some street cred and take some sort of pride in being from here here's the thing living in a really bad neighborhood isn't a good thing if it was the people who become successful from that neighborhood would actually stay there they don't and they rarely come back a crappy neighborhood isn't something to be proud of doing something about that crappy neighborhood to make it better is wake up now we can do a video series on this one two or three at least from all around the country there's that many some of these neighborhoods are really close in the level that they suck so this really won't be in a hardcore by-the-numbers order i'm gonna do my best see what we can do here that being said why don't you lock the front door put a chair against it set the alarm and watch my top 10 worst neighborhoods in the united states number 10 downtown rockford illinois life in downtown rockford is pretty dangerous violent crimes have been on the rise so much that any person in the area of downtown rockford has a 1 in 13 chance of being involved in a crime every single day this last october and november it was a little busy in the downtown rockford area they had three pedestrians hit by cars two people arrested for firing guns in the air four people shot out in front of different bars one man shot in front of his apartment one man shot while sitting in his car on the phone they had a couple of stabbings and not too far from downtown in august someone decided to fire shots at or around the auburn high school football game good times in rockford number nine west end cincinnati ohio west in cincinnati is not where you want to be ever the main streets of this area look nice and promising however once you get into the more residential parts it's where you start seeing garbage and streets and you know boarded up windows abandoned homes dogs missing legs and eye patches and broken down fences all the things that are what you'd see in a really bad movie about a bad neighborhood it's going on here in west end cincinnati it's no surprise that while in this neighborhood you have a 1 in 12 chance of being involved in a crime two nights ago three men were shot and one died early sunday morning this was all on the west end cincinnati cincinnati police say the first one happened on court and central avenue according to the police the victim took himself to the hospital but was gone before they arrived then on finley street they found an suv that was all shot up inside that man who had sprung some holes recently and now was deceased they also had tracks showing that someone else that was in the vehicle it sprung some polls also and but it left what is the deal with people leaving the scene of these things when they've been shot up if you shoot me i'm sticking around for some help well i mean unless someone's still shooting then maybe i'm gonna you know beat feet but still you know what I mean number 8 west jeffries freeway in c bolt street detroit michigan this neighborhood is not a good one to get turned around in lost whatever the crime rate here is 140 percent higher than the national average with around 60 reported crimes daily in this neighborhood alone it doesn't seems to be letting up anytime soon the year-over-year increase in crime is about 13 percent in other words this place isn't much safer than a lot of war zones you can get any one of these three gyms for just under 30 thousand each oh look at least someone took the trash to the curb now if they could just find an armored trash truck someone might pick it up number 7 chelsea avenue north claybrook street memphis tennessee this neighborhood is a smaller one near the new chicago area of memphis and yes this one is just like some of the neighborhoods in the original chicago this neighborhood boasts a fatherless household rate that is 90 percent higher than the national average this usually indicates high poverty rates as well and this one does have high poverty rates same parents struggle trust me on that one if you don't know and you were lucky enough to be raised by two parents single parents do struggle if you were raised by single mom in art in jail or rehab call your mom and say thank you a lot of men are dicks in this world this neighborhood is suffering in part because of that stat number six whitman park camden new jersey whitman park is a neighborhood where you never want to send your children to school the average students test score is 76 percent lower than the national average only about 62% of the residents will graduate high school and only about 2% of them go on to college and get a four-year degree that is some of the lowest numbers i've ever seen while i've been doing these lists for those two categories high school grads and four-year college that's just way too low they have no jobs camden is always on the most dangerous list it's in new jersey whitman park is a giant hole of despair nothing good is going on here oh i'm sorry rent is dirt cheap but then again you got to worry about dying all the time make sure you have good health insurance number five orange street and broad street rochester new york rochester has an overall crime rate that's 71 percent higher than the national average this neighborhood specifically has had a overwhelming rise in murders assaults and robberies in recent years don't move here it's just getting worse people keep mentioning that rochester is bad I haven't been there since I was a kid so I always remember it being nice i guess it was back then or I was too young to realize the suck that rochester had to offer not sure number 4 russel woods detroit michigan russel woods's neighborhood just east of i-96 the crime rate here is a hundred thirty two percent higher than national average with a total year over year increase of about fourteen percent while you're in this neighborhood you have a 1 in 12 chance of being involved in a crime and yes this is a crime or at least it should be nobody should be allowed to paint their home that color that's horrible what sucks about russel woods is that there are blocks here that are nice and well-maintained some really nice homes around here turn the corner and it looks like godzilla stroll down the street while doing the bird box challenge number 3 mcdaniel street saint mary street atlanta georgia this area of atlanta is scary the rate of robbery and violent assaults have risen the last few years giving you a one in ten chance of being involved in any crime you have a one in fifteen chance of being assaulted that means if you go on a group interview at home depot one of you is getting stomped in the parking lot afterwards it's also hot as balls in the summer in atlanta and it's a known fact that the heat increases the crime rate so no group interviews in july or august in atlanta okay number two james buchanan drive in first street jackson tennessee hey tennessee made it twice in this list that is strange because majority of the state overflows with good people and amazing landscapes but this neighborhood seems to be void of both of those it's not a place to settle now the homes here or either apartments or one-bedroom homes oddly enough chances of people moving here and settling down and giving this place a better you know look feel curb appeal whatever you want to call it is not likely I think the best thing that could happen to this neighborhood is a possessed bulldozer with a full tank of gas and number one city center is st.
Louis right now some of you are wondering where chicago well chicago does have some bad neighborhoods just not as bad as the media makes them sound crime and murder type stats go off averages or per capita chicago has far too many people to make it on a lot of these lists they'll probably be on the next one i'm sure they went back to east st.
Louis the city center area of east st. Louis has definitely seen some better days you'd probably have to go back to the 1800s to find those days today however this is not a place you want to end up have you ever seen that movie escape from new york it's very similar the crime rate here is 175 percent higher than the national average there's about 22 reported violent crimes occurring daily in city center east st.
Louis well in the area you have a 1 in 12 chance of being involved in a violent crime that's a great stat now everyone together here let's all say this together hey siri never let me go within a hundred miles of city center east st.
