How about Third World Cities in First World Countries. At least half of American cities would qualify.

Third World? A bit antiquated term I guess (cold war time) So let's say developping countries... and even that is a bit vague. But anyway most of the economy is based there in one major primate city. And the regional disparities are enourmous. Typical example: LAGOS, Nigeria.

From the list maybe Shenzhen - but China is not a "first world", means capitalist country as modern as the city may look...

Eastern chian may be Industralized, but Western China(Tibet) is hardly industralizied.

Russia.... maybe a third world country because.... of Siberia?

Forget this bloody first-second-third-world model! It's based on cold war terms as capitalist, communist and block-free countries. So Eastern Europe would be post-second world If it comes to HDI, regional disparities, stable governments and economical growth, Eastern Europe, parts of Latin America and South-East Asia are on the same level. Brazil, Poland and China have for example totally different historical backgrounds (economically, socially and politically) but can be considered in kind of the same "class" nowadays.
