Top 10 WORST neighborhoods in the United States of America #2. Chicago and Los Angeles are on it.

September 12, 2019

what is going on fellow earth dwellers
how about we do a second neighbourhoods list neighbourhoods you should never
dwell in to be more specific I said in my last video that we could do two or
three of these bad neighborhood videos I’m thinking more than now that I’m
doing some research we have a bunch of really bad neighborhoods in this country
now one thing to keep in mind about this list a bunch of stats bad location and a
reputation pretty much make up a bad neighborhood if you think a place is bad
because it has a bunch of violent crimes well you’re correct that does make it
bad but it might not also have a sewage treatment plant in its borders or crappy
schools like another neighborhood so that’s why a really dangerous place
might not have made this list what I’m getting at is crime isn’t the only stat
on this list and they really don’t fall into any particular order but all have a
strong argument for being the worst now I know this should probably be called
ten more bad neighborhoods I get it stop typing still gonna call it top ten
I have a theme on this channel and I’m sticking to it but anyway the
neighborhood’s on this list are the type of places you don’t need to move to or
at least move to willingly so why don’t we take a look here’s my top 10 worst
neighborhoods in America number two number 10 druid hills birmingham alabama
druid hills isn’t the place you want to be for very long or for any amount of
time to be perfectly honest in the past year this small neighborhood has seen
sixty counts of theft twenty-three burglaries 13 shootings and five armed
robberies and recently they’ve seen packs of coyotes roaming the
neighborhood I don’t even think these things traveled in packs I mean small
family units and I get that I mean I watch Discovery Channel on the
roadrunner cartoon I mean I know it all so move to druid hills that you like
theft burglary shootings and the unnatural evolution of the coyote number
nine the Fairfield Area Baltimore Maryland in case you ever visit
Baltimore don’t ever visit the Fairfield area the
crime rate here is 305 percent higher than the national average giving you a
one in nine chance of being involved in a crime while in the neighborhood the
good news is this is an industrial area and doesn’t have any homes really and
they shouldn’t this place is polluted like most places
that have industrial areas for more than like a week in the United States I
imagine they do have people living here though they just live outdoors kind of
like urban campers that do it for more than like a weekend this apparently is
all a hot spot for overnight parking if
you’re living out of your car number eight North Blue Ridge Kansas City
Missouri this area of Kansas City is a very small community with only about a
hundred residents and it’s a good thing the population is so low this is a very
poor area the unemployment rate is 210 percent higher than the national average
of the residents who do work the income per capita is only about $12,000 12th on
$12,000 anyway they also have more broken-down
cars than residents it seems and that’s not counting the local pick and pull now
I’m talking about cars and backyards that haven’t moved in
10-15 years and even the ones on cinder blocks in the front yard that haven’t
moved in three years yeah they got a lot of those now they do have a Dunkin
Donuts and that kind of makes you forget about all the rest but still it’s not a
good place number seven College Hill st. Louis Missouri Missouri
you’ve made it twice on this list isn’t that great this one you can get the
whole story on this town almost on stats alone the unemployment rate in College
Hill is 185 percent higher than the national average the median household
income in College Hill is 63% lower than the national average the overall crime
rate in College Hill is 219 percent higher than the national average you
know something’s wrong with your neighborhood when you drive through it
and people have boarded up all the lower windows on most of the homes not vacant
homes occupied homes they do have this really cool tower in the middle of town
oh look a boarded up windows number six Hunts Point New York New York this one
is so bad HBO did documentary about the streetwalkers that work here everything
about this neighborhood is horrible the cost of living is 12% higher than the
national average how how is that a thing everything about this place sucks and it
still cost too much to live there that’s crazy
if you live here now move that’s your best option being able to tell people
you live in New York City isn’t worth living here the crime rate is 65 percent
higher than the national average and the average income per capita is $11,000 how
much are these street walking girls making here if they’re only making
eleven thousand a year number five West Englewood Chicago
congratulations Chicago you’re on the list and congratulations all of you that
always ask why Chicago didn’t make the list I’ve explained this before but
we’ll do a quick recap on why it never does make the list there’s just too many
people in Chicago and since crime stats and all other stats are done on averages
and per capita it just doesn’t cut it it doesn’t add up
most of Chicago is really nice with really good people West Englewood is not
part of that Chicago it is actually known as the worst area in terms of gang
activities in Chicago the crime rate in West Englewood is 262 percent higher
than the national average I’ll say that again the crime rate is 262 percent
higher than the national average while in the area you have a 1 and 9 chance of
being involved in a crime this ladies and gentlemen is one of two
neighborhoods that give Chicago a bad reputation okay maybe there’s a third
number for Eagle Dale Indianapolis Indiana this area of Indianapolis is no
stranger to crime a little over twenty percent of the population is living in
poverty for the most part this is due to their drug dependency just last week
authorities served 15 search warrants from these raids 11 pounds of meth 60
pounds of weed 18 firearms and 25 bootleg copies of Madea Goes to Jail
were seized like I said these people aren’t drugs that was just Tuesday also
what the hell do they have planned for Friday Eagle Dale is safer than two
percent of the cities in the United States in other words if you took 100
towns in this country there would only be two worse than this little slice of
heaven number three Midtown New York New York Midtown is the highest per capita
rate in all of New York City it’s actually 215 percent higher than the
national average for every 100,000 residents there’s 126 crimes reported
just last month there were reports of teens robbing newsstands a lyft driver
being assaulted by a bicyclist in traffic 18 reports of men exposing
themselves and four reports of people trying to buy jet season tickets I’m
telling you it’s gotten bad in Midtown number two for Park Chicago for Park is
the worst area of Chicago you can go to the crime rate is 145 percent higher
than the national average the total year-over-year crime in the neighborhood
has increased by 13 percent the schools here are bad they have no jobs and the
weather sucks this is what politicians are talking about when they’re trying to
scare you into voting for them two or three neighborhoods in Chicago are bad
and they make it sound like this whole city’s a war zone then they make you
think they’re the only ones that can save you so you better vote for them
it’s all nonsense and stop typing I’m not saying any party does it more than
the other one they all do it they’re all guilty sucks and number one the fashion
district in Skid Row Los Angeles Skid Row in the fashion district are right
next to each other and kind of are one in the same and stop typing they are and
they’re all so frickin scary places to be and should be avoided at any time of
the day or night Drugs and Crime are out in the open in this area and they have
an overall crime rate that’s seventy five percent higher than the national
average and I promise you that is an incorrect stat I’m sure it is much much
higher I used to work in this area at least I had to pick up supplies here and
it looks like downtown Tijuana if downtown Tijuana took a turn for the
worst it’s worse than Tijuana I’m not kidding the reason I say there’s more
crimes is because nobody reports anything the police trying to avoid this
area at all timed and the locals know it and they don’t even call the police the
police have pretty much taken the stance that if there’s not a body they’re not
investigating anything so it’s useless to call them it’s you gotta fend for
yourself in these neighborhoods a cop told me that once he said if there’s not
a body they’re not showing up the area is said to be America’s homeless capital
with around 2,500 homeless residents within this half square mile
I’m not kidding it’s a half square mile the streets here look like people are
camping out on the sidewalk to get the latest iPhone or something it’s just
these people are in line every single day and all of them put together don’t
have enough to buy one iPhone I’m not even kidding they’re all broke obviously
they’re living in Skid Row Los Angeles and they go around the fashion district
digging in trash cans it’s sad I’m not trying to make light of
them that’s a bad situation there and it is probably one of the worst
neighborhoods in the country the two of them
other all right so that’s my top 10 worst neighborhoods in the United States
number 2 I hope you guys enjoyed it hope I didn’t scare you too much but there
are some scary neighborhoods in this country I’d love to hear what you think
subscribe if you haven’t already subscribed I have links if you want to
buy some merch that’s down below everybody have a great day be nice to
each other

    Downtown San Diego is pretty bad. Too many new buildings going up. Lots of rundown residential hotels. The main shopping mall there, Horton Plaza is turning into a ghost town. No free parking. Barely recovering from a Hepititas A epidemic. Filthy sidewalks. Overpriced amenities during tourist season. The Greyhound Bus station is horrible. It's basically a covered outdoor seating area, with homeless folk camping outside its chain link gate. The trolley stations are super sketchy. The Jack-In- The-Box across from the City College trolley station has an on-site security guard. I personally only go there to catch a bus to my job in another part of town.
    Another sketchy area is the San Ysidro neighborhood of San Diego, with is literally a border town. The crossing area to Tijuana is a hot mess!

Hunts Point can’t hold a candle to the street walkers on the far west side of midtown Manhattan late at night.
