“27th Ave and Indian School in Phoenix. Place of legends.”, said one. 

“Yo, screw that whole area. I used to live across the street from ASU West which wasn’t as bad, but any time I needed to drive that direction, it was like hell had let it open.”, another added.

“You can keep driving on Euclid into East Cleveland but don’t turn down the small streets. The train tunnels and dead ends make it hard to connect to the next big street.

Similarly, if you’re driving into Slavic Village, you can turn the wrong way and end up in a holler in WV. Feral houses and empty lots.” 

East St Louis/Cahokia

“Burnside Road in Portland OR comes to mind, there are stretches of it that are okay but closer to downtown (particularly Chinatown) and closer to Gresham on the Eastside can be dicey.”

“Grand Boulevard, North of Delmar. Most of North City really. The transition on Grand is just extra bizarre because it goes: University, restaurants, famous theater, famous theater… Mad Max desolation.”

“Near our suburb in Australia is a street that the town has renamed Hell St, which was even on the local news.

Always crime there, a house burnt down by the neighbours, kids hanging out on the street filthy and half dressed and don’t go to school, mangey dogs and cats, stripped car bodies, if you drive through anyone outside looks at you like ‘who the hell are you’.”

“Kensington Avenue in Philadelphia. Some people call it Zombie Land because of the shocking amount of drug addicts on the street.”
