Neighborhood Scout did a great job researching the crime rates all over the US. Their study looked at all of America's cities with populations of more than 25,000 people and then ranked them according to the number of crimes per 1,000 people. They found out, that there were major differences between the 50 states, but also within those states.

As in last year's study, Detroit (Michigan) ended up being the most dangerous city in the US with a crime rate of 19.5 per 1,000 inhabitants and a one-in-51 chance of being a victim of a violent crime.

But crime has also always played a large role in the state of New York. Here is a ranking of those three cities that made it into the top 100 of this ranking according to Neighborhood Scout.

1st Place: Newburgh, NY

Violent Crimes per 1,000 residents: 11.5

Your chance of becoming a victim: 1 in 86

2nd Place: Albany, GA

Violent Crimes per 1,000 residents: 10.9

Your chance of becoming a victim: 1 in 91

3rd Place: Buffalo, NY

Violent Crimes per 1,000 residents: 10.0

Your chance of becoming a victim: 1 in 99

Disclaimer: Keep in mind that not every neighborhood in a city is the same, and not every crime should be treated the same manner. In each of these locations, you will find lovely and fully safe places to live. Any other city in the United States might be described in the same way.

I hope you like my list of the three most dangerous cities in New York City. Please let us know what you think about those issues in the comments area.
