There’s a new study that ranked the most dangerous cities in the country, and there are two North Carolina cities that made the top 100 list!

NeighborhoodScout released its Top 100 Most Dangerous Cities in the U.S. in 2021 list where they compare cities with at least 25k residents and based on the rankings of the number of violent crimes – per 1,000 residents.

These cities are considered the top 10 most dangerous in the country:

  1. Detroit, Michigan
  2. St. Louis, Missouri
  3. Memphis, Tennessee
  4. Baltimore, Maryland
  5. Monroe, Louisiana
  6. Danville, Illinois
  7. Wilmington, Delaware
  8. Alexandria, Louisiana
  9. Camden, New Jersey
  10. Scranton, Pennsylvania

While it’s a good thing no North Carolina city made the top 10 list, two North Carolina cities did make the top 100 list.

Those two cities are:

  • No. 75: Monroe
  • No. 91: Fayetteville
