I noticed these photo's have a slight haze over them. Is that because of all the smog in the air in Los Angeles?

LA's ghettos look worse than B-more, D.C. or Philly??? Total bullshit judging by these pics on here. The ghetto's of places like bmore philly or d.c. look like real ghettos/slums rather than some suburban sprawl. LA is not a big giant ghetto like some are claiming on here I got fam down there and as far as what I saw I've seen a helluva lot worse elsewhere.

Aye the vato above me you cnt say nothing by just looking at pictures unless you grew up in WATTS CALIFAS homie. The GRAPE STReet projects the Imperial projects and the Central Projets are worse then any other projects. I lived in the Projects on Central Ave. that is run by The Bounty Hunter Blood Gang in the early 90's and sometimes in the morning there would be a dead body right outside.

L.A's Ghettos don't look as bad as some of the east coast cities because the buildings on the west are not as old. But this is gangland, more gang members and homeless than any other city. If you get the homeless population of New York, Chicago and San Fransisco combined it will still not add up to 2/3 of L.A's. I used to work for the shelters in Hollywood check out the LAYN website (L.A.Youth.Network) see how u can help

why yall argue over what is more ghetto? either it is ghetto or it is not a ghetto. it ain't a competition. if you don't live in the ghetto, don't come to the ghetto. you wouldn't understand the ghetto. stay out the ghetto.

i been to compton,watts downtown LA and east LA. i haf to say that new york,philly,bmore, and other east coast citys are worse looking than compton. watts is somewhat to me more crime ridden than compton.once i went to downtown LA and there was a guy at a 7 eleven with a gun in his pants.crazy.ya there is a lot of smog though.mostly by all the traffic

Compared to the East Coast, LA is brand new, so it doesn't have that old rundown look that takes hundreds of years of neglect to achieve. But don't get it twisted. South Central, Compton, Watts, Inglewood, and Long Beach aren't the only ghetto areas in LA. The areas may not look bad in a picture, but you could get banged on in Gardena, Carson, Pomona, Boyle Heights, Pico, even as far down in the OC as Santa Ana. The thing about LA, is that the hood is everywhere.

Are you five years old, because your sounding immature getting upset because people don't think your city looks ghetto, you should be proud to say not all black neighbourhoods look like slums, cut the childish gangster stuff out and you might even get investment in your area brother. There are lots of cities in the uk that look a whole lot worse than la but the people there are smarter and got more important things to worry about than gangbanging, which is why the murder rate is lower, I'm happy about that

Its because compton, long beach watts, Boyle heights, inglewood, gardena, whitter are all counted separately and are not all considered LA in these murder stats even tho crips from long beach might murder a blood from long beach or vice versa. If they put all parts of LA Or even south central lA and east LA together LA would have more murder than the whole top 10 combined, and would still be the top spot in per capita murders. But the east coast does look more ghetto than LA.

Bro listen to yourself. There are hoods everywhere and niggas bang it dont matter what state or what coast you from. You tellin me la in the 80s was on some other shit. Ya it was. But the east coast was too. You never heard of the crack epidemic??? The whole country was high crime in the 80s bro. New york has a rep cuz it was crazy back then. It hasnt been like that for decades and it still got that rep that should speak for itself. Lemmie tell you something new york in the 80s was worse than la. La is famous for gangs and the east coast doesnt represent as hard as west coast does. But the hoods over here are crazier and niggas get shot over nothin for real. If you really want to know the statistics say the east coast is and always has been more dangerous than the west. The most dangerous hoods in the country are in the east not the west. And even in the 80s the east was still worse. Camden in the 80s was worse than compton. New york was a war zone.
