which cities are the most depressing cities in the new york metropolitan tristate area?
Is IT ... hartford,ct camden, nj trenton,nj bridgeport,ct newark, nj new haven,ct east orange, nj jersey city,nj atlantic city, nj waterbury, ct new york,ny new rochelle, ny irvington, nj or yonkers, nj.
my personal opinion...
1.camden,nj- extremely high violent and property crime rate dilapidated housing downtown one of the dirtiest cities ive been too. high poverty rate. the plus is that its right outside philadelphia (5 minutes) commute is easy. the city itself is a ghost town what else can i say it sucks.
2.hartford, ct/new haven, ct- hartford has a higher murder rate than brooklyn, ny and 4x the murder rate of los angeles. hartford has high poverty and fading businesses gangs run the city literally... the mayor is a "former" gang member. what else can be said about hartford its a **** hole. new haven not as bad. new haven's downtown, east shore, and west side beautiful areas with high income. boarded up housing projects on outskirts of town and vacant colisseum downtown an eyesore though . new havens newhallville (uptown) notorious in connecticut as well as its hill section (southside) for crime and poverty. new haven has high infant mortality and poverty rates. nothing to do in either of these towns. you know these cities inside/out in a day. both cities were on the nations top ten list of poorest cities in country with new haven(1) and hartford(7) that was years ago though.
3.trenton, nj- shell of a city with a high crime rate and little to do what can i say new jersey is one of the suckiest states in america there is a reason why they call it dirty jersey just get on I-95 headed to jersey and roll down a window ... it smells like the entire state laid a big fat stinker in your car. there are so many places jersey goes wrong, trenton as at the top of that list.
4.atlantic city, nj- besides the casinos atlantic city has a high violent crime rate prostitution and drugs are a serious problem. hookers can be seen roaming freely at any time of day. some kid was shot in the head recently in a drug dispute. a city high in corruption and poverty. for gods sake can someone kill all the hookers.
5.(2-way tie) bridgeport,ct jersey city,nj these cities were created in equal firstname.lastname@example.org the math violence + drugs + boredom + corruption = cesspools.
