  1. Ghetto, to me, is a subjective definition for everyone and for me, "ghetto" is "ghetto."  It can be the most beautiful Second Empire houses in the world, if the neighborhood is "hood," it's "hood."  It isn't racial at all (as a matter of fact, one of Columbus' most "ghetto" areas is parts of Hilltop, a "white ghetto").  But oh well :).


  2. It was once a dance studio for the Ohio Players, in fact.

     

    Mrnyc, my definition was vague but in essence, my point was that even the most beautiful neighborhoods can be the most ghetto (go to Los Angeles).  Even the most gritty neighborhoods can be the most yuppie (see Tremont in Cleveland or Olde Town East in Columbus).  So appearance can mean something to some areas yet mean nothing at all to other areas.


  3. Ahem.

     

    The camera is an Olympus C-720.  Though some of the neighborhoods don't look bad, that doesn't mean they are not "high in crime."  Granted, University Row is just fine (typically) but neighborhoods like Princeton Heights and Roosevelt, which may not "look" bad, ARE bad in terms of high crime rates.  Sometimes the most beautiful neighborhoods can be the most ghetto, sadly.  Re: Over-The-Rhine.

     

    Secondly, there are many racially mixed neighborhoods in the city besides Five Oaks.  The entire north and south sides are racially mixed while portions of the east side are racially mixed.  It is just the west side which is predominantly black.  I used to live in Five Oaks and went to school there so I know all about Five Oaks, Kenilworth, etc.  The initial response with the gates and landscaped medians (re: dead ends) with Five Oaks and Mt. Vernon neighborhoods in the city wasn't becasuse of drug chases but literal drunk driving.  It became a drug issue when several incidents happened along Deleware Avenue (which ironically has no gates, that I know of).  While Five Oaks overall is healthier than the other neighborhoods I've shown (minus Univeristy Row), it still has portions of "ghetto" areas that are quite blighted, sadly.

     

    Remember, ghetto doesn't always equate with "rundown homes."


  4. This is a tour of some of Dayton's more "downtrodden" neighborhoods.  Enjoy!
