10. Atlanta, Georgia: McDaniel Street/Mary Street

Since 2000, Atlanta has been one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. There are several affluent communities in the greater Atlanta area; Peachtree City boasts real estate ranging from $450,000 to over $1 million, not to mention a 2.5 percent unemployment rate (Georgia’s average is 4.1 percent). Nevertheless, with growth and an influx of people come unpleasant side effects. Atlanta is commonly referred to as “The Trap” for its busting drug trade, and McDaniel Street and Mary Street have a particularly violent reputation. The area is a popular hangout for Atlanta’s Pittsburgh Jack City Gang, or Jack City 1029 –Pittsburgh refers to the neighborhood where McDaniel Street is located. In 2012, the gang made national headlines when it posted a clip of a man being brutally assaulted because he wasn’t welcome in the neighborhood.
