Top 25 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods in America

 Even the most dangerous cities in America can have relatively safe neighborhoods, as there is more variation in crime within most cities than between cities.

Violent crimes include murder, rape, armed robbery, and aggravated assault. These neighborhoods are the epicenters of violence in America, where social issues are likely to ignite into violence and spread. See our FAQ on how we rank the most dangerous neighborhoods
