* 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.

* [[LittleMissBadass Fabiola Iglesias]] from ''Manga/BlackLagoon'' was born and raised in the barrios of Caracas, Venezuela. In the 2nd episode of the 3rd season, we get an aerial view of Caracas that is very similar to the CodeGeass example: a clean, modern city and an overcrowded massive slum are divided by a highway between them.

* [[Franchise/BioShock Rapture]] has at least two: Apollo Square, in the first game, is notable for having housed Fontaine's Home for the Poor, which became Atlas's base of operations later on. Pauper's Drop, in the second, was never even meant to be a part of the city; it was a series of flophouses built underneath the proposed railway for its work crew. It started falling apart even faster than the rest of the city, and by the time you arrive is home to, among other fun places of interest, a train car that apparently ''fell in through the roof''. As Augustus Sinclair observes, "There ain't a side of the tracks more wrong than under 'em." Bonus points for featuring a literal "Skid Row" as one of its sections, though it's hard to say how that part is more of a Skid Row than the rest of it.

* Oakland, California is considered this to SanFrancisco. However, most of what fits the bill is the southeast end called "East Oakland". Only the airport and Coliseum aren't considered dangerous.
* SanFrancisco has a seedy,former military neighborhood called Hunters Point, which has one of the highest murder rates in the state and maybe even nation.
