My Life In The Urban Hellhole

This Inqy commenter describes it.

Center City and its cluster of yuppified neighborhoods, places that we've never heard called Bella Vista till some braying schmuck shilling marginal flats and lots talked it into being back in the year 1985, is still a ghetto. It may have a layer of gilt and gelt, it's still a ghetto. No one will respect your property or personal safety in the ghetto because it's still predominately the seething jungle, inhabited by various marginal species with no refinement, taste or sense of restraint. My niece started school at a location in the ghetto and we made sure she knew how to handle a bottle of mace and a Colt 45 before consigning her to the pricey dorm.
