Buffalo has some run-down areas but it definitely should not be mentioned anywhere in a thread that asks for the most run-down city in the US.

There are plenty in the midwest that I can think of, but none of them are large cities. Smaller cities and towns tend to fall harder than larger ones.

Superior, Wisconsin comes to mind. But I'm sure there are plenty more that are just as bad and probably worse.

if 2000 people responded to this thread, it would be doubtful even one of them have been to most US cities or have a sense of what most are like.

That's not usually a problem in most threads. It is here.

The only thing that can come of a thread like this is that cities that don't deserve it are being pointed out in a way that would make the resident of any given one of them cringe.

Sometimes, our threads can, by nature, be just plain nasty (which does not mean the posters themselves are). IMHO, this one is.

personally, the worst neighborhood I've ever seen is probably east garfield park in Chicago, right around and under the el. Scary. Small neighborhoods like these could probably top cities listed above by themselves, but those cities above as a whole are shitty altogether, thus the rankings.

im sorry if i cause any problems with people arguing about their towns, i dont live in the usa and i was just curious about some of these places so i guess all that i can say is be nice, dont be saying mean thing about places you havent been to. if this thread gets out of hand would a mod lock it or delete it.

This is true, but Detroit is hardly the most run down.

In Michigan, we might say the city that has the largest percentage of itself rundown is Benton Harbor.
