    16 American cities foreign governments warn their citizens about

    By Reid Wilson, Updated: November 14 at 4:34 pm

    Planning a trip abroad? It’s probably best to check out the State Department’s list of travel warnings for countries with unsafe political situations. At the moment, the State Department has issued travel warnings for 34 countries, from the Central African Republic and El Salvador to Iraq and North Korea.
    Well, just as State warns Americans about dangerous places to travel, so too do foreign ministries in other countries — and some countries warn their citizens to avoid heading to certain cities in the U.S. France, in particular, warns travelers to be careful in a large number of specific cities.
    Here’s what other countries, mostly France, say about American cities:




    Boston: Avoid walking at night in Dorchester, Mattapan and Roxbury, and be wary of “petty crime” in Chinatown, the North End and Fenway.
    New York: Be wary in Times Square and at the Statue of Liberty, and don’t go to Harlem, the Bronx or Central Park at night.
    Washington: Northeast and Southeast should be avoided, and Union Station is dangerous at night. “Le quartier Anacostia n’est pas recommandable de jour comme de nuit.” Translation: Don’t go to Anacostia, day or night.
    Baltimore:Considered a dangerous city except downtown.”
    Richmond: “Do not visit the city on foot.”
    Pittsburgh: The French urge their citizens to avoid Mount Oliver, Hill District, Homewood-Brushton and Hazelwood.
    Cleveland: Avoid Cleveland Heights, Lakewood and Euclid. That warning got Cleveland Heights Mayor Edward Kelly upset. “The French government is foolish and doesn’t know what they’re talking about,” he told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
    Detroit: “The center is not recommended after the close of business.”
    Chicago: Stay away from the West Side and anywhere south of 59th Street.
    Houston: Be vigilant if traveling through Downtown, south and east Houston at night.
    St. Louis: “Eviter le quartier nord entre l’aéroport et le centre-ville, mais la navette reliant l’aéroport est sûre.” Translation: Avoid northern area between the airport and the city center, but the airport shuttle is safe (Hat tip to our friend Chris Good, of ABC News, for spotting that nugget).
    Atlanta: The French are nervous about the southern part of the city, and downtown after dark.
    New Orleans: Northwest of Dauphine Street, northeast of Ursulines Avenue, north of St. Charles Avenue and south of Magazine Street are areas of concern.
    Miami: “Canadians have been the victims of crime such as break-ins, assaults and pickpocketing in the Miami area, sometimes during daylight hours,” Canada’s foreign ministry warns. France says attacks on tourists in Florida are rare now, but were frequent a few years ago.
    Los Angeles: France warns tourists to take care in Hollywood, Santa Monica, Venice Beach and Long Beach, and to avoid Watts, Inglewood and Florence.
    El Paso: The British Foreign Office warns tourists about violence along the border with Mexico, and the border crossing at Ciudad Juarez specifically.
    Germany doesn’t warn its citizens about any specific cities, but it does caution against letting it all hang out: “Although the laws in individual states categorizing nudity as ‘indecent exposure’, are rarely asserted and punished, those laws should absolutely be followed. Nude bathing and changing clothes at the beach stirs up public agitation and can lead to unpleasantnesses.”


    I can only speak to the warnings for Pittsburgh and the French seem to know what they're talking about. What about your city?

    All civilized people should avoid these areas. Unless they want to be victims of the Knockout game.

    Hate to say it, but it's not just the Canadians that are getting jacked down here in South Florida... it's more the ghetto roaches that are killing each other the minute the sun goes down.. Every morning on the news it's nothing but shootings/stabbings/beatings in Miami that happened overnight. Don't leave the compound after dark,& stay out of bad areas. If you do - you've got to be packing some sort of protective weapon. :grad:

Yet I'm the bad guy because I don't want to go up to her house on Thanksgiving. I'm going to pull a fuzzy zoeller and ask if they will have Fried Chicken and collard greens at the feast.
