here's a contrast of wilmington, delaware. wilmington is a very nice city, but it has it's dangerous areas like every city in the world.
i took these three pictures from the same parking lot on walnut street.
here are some decent sized office buildings, many of which are the headquarters for regional, national, and global companies.
here is the world headquarters for mbna, the credit card company.
and literally just two blocks away is the worst neighborhood in the city, the east side. the east side has a very high concentration of drug dealing and drug trafficking, and this is where up to 50% of all shootings in the city occur. (these are just the back of the houses.)
this is about as big of a contrast as you'll find in wilmington. most neighborhoods are very nice and don't really have much crime. also, with all the big corporations located in wilmington, the big money makes its way around the area, and so everyone benefits in some way.
