Both cities I have spent my life living near... ranked in the top 5 most dangerous cities in the nation.


Yes, this is in the joke section cause we really are that craptastic!

The depravity of our cities is only an antonym for the beauty of the parks we are blessed to behold.

I agree...

And I am planning a few more Pure Michigan trips for 2011.

A palm loop & a long weekend camping trip in Copper Harbor.

sweet picture..

get out of that sewer with all the downriver rats gasman.. i live in one of the bigger cities and it is one of the safest in the country..

i agree though michigan is great outside of the "liberal belt" known as southeastern michigan.. problem, conundrum perhaps, is that all the money is in SE michigan.. so if you want to make a decent living you have to whore around SE michigan.. and i am an easy whore - not cheap but certainly easy.. and well worth the price i get paid..

I Feel Your Pain!

Buffalo, NY
Population: 270,007
Worst Feature: The Weather
Best Feature: (Except for Vegetarians) The Home of Buffalo Wings

What would you get if you take a corrupt city government, mix it up with urban decay, a high crime rate, and brutally, cold snowy winters – you’d get one of the worst cities in the world to live. You’d also get Buffalo New York.
Like many other cities suffering form urban blight and decay on this list, years of high unemployment have taken their toll on Buffalo. Thousands have fled leaving large parts of the town unoccupied and boarded up.
There are few remaining job opportunities for those that remain and the typical alcoholism, drug abuse and crime that usually follow are big problems in Buffalo.
Add to that its damn cold, if not for the major contribution to popular culture – Buffalo Wings, Buffalo New York would have very little going for it.

I agree... the money and jobs are in my area and nearby. That is why I am here. I don't want to drive 45mins to get to work on a good day. I live mins from my work.

There is a pretty influx gg to newport area. My bud just bought a huge huge house down there...

Mad dog... is that detroit? Looks about the same

Yea thats Buffalo. Or at least what the better half looks like. It used to be a city of half a million. Now it's a city of dispair.
I live about 20 miles east on rt.20. Don't go near the city unless i have to.
