Let’s hear it for the 216. Fresh in on the newswires, we’re now holding down a high altitude spot in another national ranking, this time for . . . wait for it . . . Most Dangerous Neighborhoods. Cue the mass disappointment and purchasing of bullet-proof vests.

According to NeighborhoodScout.com and Scene favorite WalletPop.com, not one but two areas on the East Side are crime ridden enough to qualify as among nation’s worst. Take that Compton!

Coming in at #2 is Scoville Avenue, which lost out to the top dog, West Lake Street in Chicago. According to the data, people have a 1 in 6 chance of becoming the victim of a crime in the Cleveland neighborhood.

Climbing down the Top 25, passing by notable epicenters of urban unrest like Memphis, Washington D.C., and Las Vegas, we come to Cleveland’s Chestnut Place area at #20. Here an individual has a 1 in 11 chance of becoming a victim.

Obviously, this is not the kind of list we want to be on.
