I currently reside in the capitol of Illinois, Springfield. Recently, neighborhoodscout.com reported on what it calls the 25 most dangerous neighborhoods in the United States. An area in Springfield came up as number 13. According to the State Journal-Register, city cops think this is way off base. In the up coming weeks, I’m going to be taking a deeper look at the stats for this neighborhood.
Below is a map of the neighborhood (bound by 11th Street on the west to 19th Street on the east and from Edwards Street on the North and Brown Street on the South.)
