Is there a source for....
My wife and I are taking a two week road trip this summer out east. I was wondering if there is a source that would tell you the "bad" sections of town in different cities?
For example Boston has an area knows as "The Combat Zone". Obviously visitors would want to avoid that area. Here in Minneapolis Lake Street is a bad area along with North Minneapolis. I wouldn't direct visitors to those areas.
We all have occasionally heard rumors of stay out of this section or that area of town, don't ride the buses or the subway here or there. Most of the time I can't remember them and probably wouldn't know I was in them until it was too late anyway.
You can look up crime statistics for a city or town but wouldn't it be nice to know exactly what area most of that crime occurs in? This of course doesn't mean that you are safe from crime in other areas but I sure wouldn't knowingly go to a ghetto if I could avoid it.
Thought about that too, but....

I really don't think such a single source exsists, as P95 says I would probably have to contact LE in each area. Just a thought.
