Street View Tour of America's Ghettos

Google Street View World has created a little Street View tour of the Top 25 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods in America.

The locations are based on a list drawn up by Neighborhood Scout which was compiled from FBI crime data from all 17,000 local law enforcement agencies in America. Nieghborhood Scout say that the chosen neighborhoods are those with the highest predicted rates of violent crime per 1,000 residents.

The Google Street View World tour is a slideshow of Google Maps Street View images captured in the 25 neighborhoods. It would be interesting to compare this list of dangerous neighborhoods with a deprivation index. The Street View images would suggest that these neighborhoods would also feature highly on any list of the most deprived areas.

And you don't understand why those selected photos are offensive? Sad.
