The Worst Cities to Visit in the United States


8. New Haven, Connecticut

New Haven is best known for being home to Yale University, one of the most prestigious universities in the U.S. However, the surrounding area suffers from a dark reality, and one of the highest crime rates on the East Coast—with approximately 16 in 1000 incidents of crime, 22 murders (a rate that has doubled in the last year), and rapid unemployment (9.6% unemployment rate). Unfortunately much of the city is impoverished and crime-ridden, leaving New Haven with the eighth highest rate of robbery and the fourth highest rate of assault in all of America.
