Default Re: Violent Crime in Pittsburgh up 2.6%

Well, I moved to big bad Detroit, and although it isn't as bad as it's perception, it is still pretty bad. No one goes downtown unless you are specifically going to a game or to a casino. The area around the new Ford Field and Comerica (which looks exactly like PNC Park) are nice and ok to be around at night, but some of the surrounding areas are very scary.

There really isn't a South Side or Strip or Waterfront here. There are a couple places out in the Burbs, but that's it. We have what they openly call around here "White Flight" where, after the 60's riots, white folks have moved from the city and inner neighborhoods to the suburbs and beyond. Pittsburgh is a completely different cultural makeup.
