Miami. One second you're in fairly upscale Coconut Grove, then literally one street over you're in one of the worst hoods in Miami.
I have a small story on this.
When I was younger we went in holiday to Florida (we live in Ireland).
Driving to Miami airport following a map. My dad was shit at reading maps. So we take an exit too early and are driving around some streets next to the overpass, trying to figure out his to get back on.
Police car pulls up to us and asks if we know where we are going? My mum says we took an exit too soon and trying to get on the highway again. Police officer quietly says this neighbourhood is extremely dangerous and we should not be driving around it. He then tells us to follow him and he will take us back onto the highway. The look on his face was pretty scary, he looked like he thought something would happen right away. Kept looking round him.
When I looked around, nothing looked too suspect. No gangs of people hanging about, or Spanish shop signs etc... Not huge amount of graffiti. I was young but being a white nerd I was into my gangsta rap and GTA so I thought I would know what would look dangerous.
Looking back a young white family driving round a Latino hood in an obvious rental car with suitcases filled with stuff was probably like a fucking neon sign flashing "ROB ME!" to anyone inclined to crime!
