Hi

I'm looking for the most rotten parts of Brooklyn. Where to go ?

And are there any urban decay slum streets with ruins / burned down houses like in the South Bronx of the 70's/80's ?

Thanks a lot.

Right now, the worst parts are East New York and some parts of Coney Island. Also some areas in Clinton Hill and Bed Stuy but the "bad" areas are quickly disappearing because of massive gentrification that is happening. Areas after the Nostrand stop of the "A" train also. I happen to live in Bed Stuy and can tell you there been a big difference in the year that I've been here.

Brooklyn isn't the worst anywhere. All over BK stuff is jumping off. Gone are the days of empty lots everywhere. There is a hot spot in every hood.

If you need a bad town, try Camden, NJ. The situation there is far worst and in need of help.

East New York used to be the worse area but once the drugs were cleaned out it became more livable. It would probably surprise a lot of people to know that ENY used to be the sports Mecca of the USA. This is where the famous and now defunct Eastern Park used to be:

The old Brooklyn Dodgers used to call this their home field and there were many college football games, cricket, racing, and baseball events there. I would love to see the good old days return to that part of Brooklyn.

And yes, it is unfortunate but now Camden, NJ is just about the worse area.

Yes, Coney Island has been fixed up quite a bit. Once again, it has become a nice place for family entertainment. The Brooklyn Cyclones baseball team has been a huge plus for the environs!
