* In ''Anime/PrincessPrincipal'', London is one. The sky is permanently hazy and smoggy, glowing orange at night; homeless litter the streets, and the city itself is a vast sprawl. Children as young as 6 are out working in factories.

* "Dirty Old Town", written by Ewan [=MacColl=] about his native Manchester, and covered by many artists including Dubliners and The Pogues. Many covers of the song drop the lone reference to Salford, changing it instead to "sulphured" or "smoky".

* New Coventry from ''VideoGame/Bully''. A dilapidated, impoverished urban area located near the Blue Sky Industrial Park, it's the turf of the Greasers (1950's style throwbacks seemingly inspired by ''{{Literature}}/TheOutsiders'') and the Townies (Non-Bullworth Academy students that bear a grudge against the school and its faculty).

* The ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' expansion pack ''The Pitt'' has these, in addition to the NightmarishFactory that is the Mill. While The Pitt, post-War '''Pitt'''sburg, had survived a large portion of the nuclear radiation partially due to the choking smog in the clouds and lack of nearby nuclear strikesbut mutagens and radiation still leeched into the ground and water. The Monongahela River and it's shores are now extremely radioactive and quickly kill anyone foolish to try to swim out.

* ''Warhammer40K'' has these extended to entire ''planets'' in the form of Forge Worlds, EternalEngine-like factories using mostly backbreaking manual labor to produce an uninterrupted supply of weapons, tanks and armor for the Imperium's trillions-strong armies.

* Subverted in ''Literature/RuinedCity'' by Creator/NevilShute; the eponymous city ''used'' to fit the "heavily polluted" part of this trope and wasn't an especially attractive living environment by many standards, but the workers were unionised and the pay and conditions were fairly good. It only became a true ghetto when the Great Depression kicked in and the shipyard went out of business. The protagonist actually notes the lack of pollution, and describes the place as being "clean as a washed corpse".
