Here Are The 10 Most Dangerous Places In Massachusetts After Dark

There are certain places that you just avoid after dark. Every state has them, and Massachusetts is no exception.

We focused on rates of violent crime over property crime for this list. However, a combination of crime statistics were considered, such as violent crime (including rape), arson, property crime and theft. Poverty rates were also factored into the rankings. All data used is from the most recent FBI crime report, found here.

Please note: this list is for general interest purposes only. There are beautiful and valuable spots in all of these cities. Please don’t freak out if your hometown is listed below.
