Okay, that list is kind of strange. First of all, the worst neighborhood on the list has a median house value of $323,000 (over 1/4 of houses here worth more than 530K), and an annual appreciation rate of 20% (top 1% in the nation), despite residents being among the lowest 15% in income in the US. How, in this economy, are seemingly already inflated housing values skyrocketting in a poor neighborhood that is the most violent in the country?

Also, neighborhood #3 was given an award for having "residents who are highly educated and employed in executive or professional positions...", despite being described on the same page as having residents with "well below average income" and "one of the lowest levels of educational attainment in the state". What is this, T-ball?

Question for those who live in Detroit. What neighborhoods would you expect to see on this list?

I used to work on houses around Gratiot and McNichols. That area was run down but didnt seem to dangerous. I also worked on some near Harpo's for about a year, same thing. And i went to school near Wayne State and that area's just fine.

I'm kinda clueless about the rest of Detroit though.

 Highland Park and Brightmoor I figured would be on the list.

Wayne State, New center, Woodbridge, Mexican Village, Indian Village, Boston Edison, Corktown, Atwater/Rivertown are all fine.

I want to say most of the homes there are multi-family dwellings.

South Philly D -  List is complete bullshit. N 13th street is not even that bad. U can walk around there with no problem. Much worse neighborhoods in Philly.

Was thinkin the same thing. Walk like 3 blocks and you're in a yuppy neighborhood. I can think of 5-10 spots off the top of my head that make that area look nice.

Didn't see any methodology but just to hazard a guess, they're probably simply going off the FBI's Universal Crime Reports, which city governments that are historically terrible traditionally game as much as possible to make it look like they're doing something.

Any of you "I bet they're black! I bet they're black!" posters want to explain the significance of your assumption?

In other words, so what? What are you trying to say?

Something about the impact of kiwi fruit upon agricultural economies in rural NZ.

 Not ALL, but a lot.  ...statisically speaking, of course.

 There is a "criminal" gene in black people which is activated in certain circumstances.  It is dormant most of the time but sometimes it can be triggered by external influences.  Rap music, for example.

 It's hypothesized that a certain enzyme in watermelon can also trigger it.
