Where is the ghetto in Winchester?

I'm just curious as to which neighborhoods the locals feel I should avoid vs my own first impression/instinct.

Where is the hood in WInchester?

Bonus question: Is there is "ghetto culture" in Winchester? What I mean is, do you find many people glorifying guns, drugs, violence etc. here as you do in larger cities?

Thanks, or as they say in the hood,

Good look.

Not sure if your being sarcastic or not, but I don't think there is a "ghetto culture" in Winchester where people glorify guns or the "thug life". There definitely are some small areas that I would avoid after dark, Kent St being the main one. Some parts of Kent St are nice, but trust me, you won't have any problems figuring out the bad parts.

It's a joke that you would even ask this question. There is no type of ghetto anywhere within even a hundred mile radius of Winchester, VA. None. The locals might think there are certain areas to be avoided for whatever reason, but danger does not exist. Crime is minimal too.

Any "ghetto culture" is a result of pop culture and is completely fabricated. Nobody is "hood" in Winchester. I would doubt that anyone has ever even seen a true crime ridden neighborhood firsthand. Nobody in Winchester sells rocks on the corner, or robs people, or owns an illegal firearm, or shoots dice and moves weight out of a trap house, or murders people. Nobody does anything like that. Nobody is a "rider." Nobody is a "pimp." Nobody is a "G." Nobody is a "goon." They're all members of a privileged class and are living in an economically booming town in one of the safest regions of the entire country.

If anyone from Winchester, VA came up to me and told me to run my pockets I would LAUGH in their face. I would walk down Kent Street at 2:00 AM wearing a gold chain and Jordans, texing on my iPhone with $1000 hanging out of my pocket holding an ounce of weed and NOBODY would do ANYTHING. I promise you.
