25 Bad Neighborhoods

Posted in Undogegorized by chamblee54 on May 3, 2013








It is time for the 2013 version of NeighborhoodScout’s ® Top 25 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods in America. Chamblee54 wrote about the 2009 and 2010 editions, but somehow missed 2012. HT to Peach Pundit, who report that “Lakewood is rated the 9th most dangerous city in America.” Pictures are from The Library of Congress.

Neighborhood Scout is a subscription based service, telling realtors about neighborhoods around America. The T25MDNIA study is a publicity gimmick, like political polling companies studying religion. This survey seems to get more attention than Top 100 Safest Cities in the U.S. The safest list has three Georgia towns: Johns Creek (14), Milton (39), and Peachtree City (63).

The Top 25 list is not very reliable. The neighborhoods change from year to year. They seem to focus on some states, and ignore others. This year, Michigan has six bad hoods, and Illinois five. Two cities, in those states, have four each. Two hood cities include St. Louis, Memphis, and Houston. By contrast New York, New Jersey, California, and Florida get clean bills of health.

Only one of the hoods is in Georgia. By coincidence, PG helped a friend move to Adair Avenue last Saturday. To get there, you go past the Federal Prison, and go forward at Jonesboro Road. After a couple of side streets, you turn right, and go up a hill to Adair Avenue. When you get there, the first two houses that you see are boarded up.
