* In ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'', the city of Ankh-Morpork is actually a double one, consisting of "Proud Ankh and pestilent Morpork", separated by the River Ankh. Even within Morpork though there is the WretchedHive of the Shades.

* In ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'', the city of Ankh-Morpork is actually a double one, consisting of "Proud Ankh and pestilent Morpork", separated by the River Ankh. Even within Morpork though there is [[TheCityNarrows the WretchedHive Shades]], where it is said that [[UpToEleven even the criminals are afraid to walk the streets]]. As the series progresses and the setting slowly transitions from MedievalEuropeanFantasy to GaslampFantasy this becomes a bit less true; Ankh is still a very expensive residential district dominated by OldMoney, but Morpork is home to a growing middle class and most of the Shades.city's manufacturing sector, not to mention the seat of government and [[WizardingSchool Unseen University.]] The crime rate also starts dropping considerably in the aftermath of ''Discworld/MenAtArms'' once the City Watch get more manpower and a real budget.

Home of many GangBangers. See also CityNoir for a citywide mood, TheCityNarrows for a fully criminal subdistrict, and WretchedHive for near-total lawlessness. If there's an inspirational underdog story about a RagTagBunchOfMisfits who want to go to a sports meet, they have to make do with ImprovisedTraining. If this place is filled with [[FantasticRacism Fantastic Races,]] its a FantasticGhetto. It is possible that it is a CloseKnitCommunity, where the characters support each other against their problems. Rural versions of the trope may exist in the form of a trailer park. Contrast {{Suburbia}}.

* In the greater UsefulNotes/{{Boston}} area, you've got Roxbury, Mattapan (known as "Murderpan" to some) and the neighborhood of Mission Hill, so much so that [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Stuart_%28murderer%29 one of the most infamous murder cases]] in Boston's history not only took place there, but was deliberately committed there [[BatmanGambit because of the area's reputation]]. Somerville ("Slummervile") used to be this before it got gentrified.

Head up north to the Merrimack Valley and you have Lawrence and Haverhill; Lowell, while also home to some very rough areas, has been gentrified to some degree and is now ''far'' less dangerous than the other two as a whole.

* In ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', Lowtown qualifies as the WrongSideOfTheTracks, being the former slave quarter of the city. As a refugee from Ferelden, this is where the main character is living at the start of Act 1. Darktown the city's labyrinthine sewer system might also qualify, but it's closer to being a WretchedHive.
