Two Dallas Neighborhoods Make Most Dangerous List

Dallas is the Lone Star's lone representative in poll based on FBI crime statistics

Dallas is the unfortunate owner of two of the Top 25 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods, according to a recently released study of FBI crime statistics.

Route 352 at Scyene Road broke Dallas into the Top 10 with a No. 9 showing.  Not far behind at No. 12, 2nd Avenue and Hatcher Street.

The study ranked the danger in a neighborhood by calculating the number of violent crimes per 1,000 residents in a census tract, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Dallas' top showing was bested only by crime-riddled corridors in Cincinnati, Miami, Kansas City, Baltimore, Jacksonville, Memphis and Chicago -- the latter of which had four neighborhoods represented in the Top 25.

Detroit, which normally has a pretty bad rep crime-wise, barely broke into the Top 25 and finished 23rd. 
Large cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco and Houston didn't place any neighborhoods in the Top 25.

Proudly, no other Texas cities made the list.
