* In ''Fanfic/PokemonResetBloodlines'', Gringy City is now a good place to live thanks to the efforts of WealthyPhilanthropist Tokiomi Borealis. However, it has a sector known as the Old Cesspit, which is still somewhat slummy compared to the rest of the city, and was even worse back in the city's dark times.

* ''Film/LadyBird'' has a literal case, as going to Christine's working-class home requires her wealthy classmates to cross the railway.

* North Philadelphia is the most dangerous part of the city due to poverty, crime, and drug use. This is a literal example as the bad area starts above Girard Avenue, which has one of the trolley lines. West Philly starts to get more dangerous when you go past the blocks around 40th Street and doesn't get better until you get to the neighborhoods close to City Line. Southwest Philly also has its share of bad neighborhoods, especially Kingsessing.

* This is sadly still literally true in many old-fashioned Southern towns, e.g. Memphis, albeit with quaint results (e.g. a fancy golf course guarded by rottweilers directly across the railroad tracks from an Afrocentric bookstore!). North Memphis is a particularly dangerous part of the city due to a high rate of violent crime, with a disturbing portion of it being committed by young people against each other.

* The Southside of Chicago is infamous for its high crime rate, particularly where gang activity is concerned.

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': [[Film/TheAvengers2012 "The Incident"]] undid a lot of the gentrification in Hell's Kitchen. Matt and Foggy are able to acquire their office space for Nelson & Murdock on the cheap due to it being one of only a few buildings on its block to have escaped major damage in the Incident. Meanwhile, Wilson Fisk has made his rise to power as a crime lord due to skimming on Incident reconstruction contracts.

* Parodied by Music/SteelPanther with "Wrong Side of the Tracks (Out in Beverly Hills)". The singer has a mansion the size of a city block, lavish statues, and his name on the side of a plane. But he's considered on the "wrong side of the tracks" because his TrophyWife threw away his Music/{{Dokken}} [=CDs=], he can't figure how to set up Bluetooth to his mansion, and he can't afford a hanger for his plane yet.

* In the 20th century Russia was hit with an urbanization like with 2x4, jumping from a 90% rural to 80% urban in just a 50 years or so. During the rapid industrialization of TheThirties a lot of communities arose around the enormous factories often built in the middle of nowhere or on the outskirts of the existing cities, essentially becoming company towns. Populated mainly by the former peasants torn out of their traditional way of life, these quickly became almost classical Industrial Slums, full of rowdy working youths, GangBangers (often the very same youths), [[TheAlcoholic drunks]], etc. When the [[UsefulNotes/SovietRussiaUkraineAndSoOn Soviet Union]] caved in, some of these "monotowns" and working districts, those whose plant of factory [[WhyWereBummedCommunismFell didn't fare all that well]], became Modern Ghettos, with the poverty and unemployment galore, while those that fared better got even slummier, especially with the influx of cheap immigrant labor.

* The district of Sunrise was this in the Laurentia story arc of ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]''. A world-spanning war and resulting [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything refugee crisis]] combined with a need for cheap labor led the government of [[ShiningCity Laurentia]] to reconsider their [[HiddenElfVillage previous]] immigration policy and admit refugees...who found themselves herded into Sunrise with little to no aid and barred from entering most of the rest of the city. The native Laurentian residents of Sunrise were already this trope and were not consulted on this decision.
