16 American cities foreign governments warn their citizens about

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.”

Stay out of those predominantly Swedish and Danish areas. Might want to avoid the Norwegians too.

The French seem to be quite aware of the concept of "no go" zones, considering they have quite a few in their own cities now (the islamic areas).

Good advice posted in the article...

Stay out of any American city controlled by dimocrats and you'll be ok.

I heard a tidbit on the radio yesterday. With the same population as Dallas, the Bronx has half the murder rate.

It began under Giuliani and continued under Bloomberg, New York is the safest big city in America.

HaH! The Mistake on the Lake!

Hmmmm..........my daughter lives in Lakewood. I wonder if I should tell her about that.
I just got a face full of obama.



I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.

I'm surprised Phoenix isn't on the list since they are the kidnap capital of the world these days.

These countries are showing how racist they are.  These cities all have large black or Hispanic populations.  I think Al Sharptongue and J$ss$ J$cks$n should go over there and mount big protests and Lurch should put sanctions on them.  Then our president should get his friends, the muslim brotherhood, to bomb a few of those countries and show them what unsafe really is!  The administration needs to teach them a thing or two by golly. :woohoo:

Most of these are neighborhoods the locals studiously avoid, too.  I mean, really, what tourist would have any reason to go near Homewood-Brushton or Roxbury? That's just silly.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

Summer 1965. Riot breaks out in Watts, an area near Los Angeles.

truth_seeker was an apprentice carpenter, in Orange County CA, a few healthy white flight strides outside of Los Angeles.

A young journeyman carpenter, who was black and lived in Orange County, was a shy fellow. After a weekend of non-stop news over the Watts Riots, back on the job Monday, he quietly stated:

"I was planning to go up to LA, to see my mother. But those n*****s are shooting n*****s."
