The neighborhoods of Fresno generate far too many stereotypes to count. Hipster communities, preppy regions, college-friendly districts, and, of course, ghettos all exist.

In Fresno, it appears like there is a neighborhood for everyone.

While Fresno is routinely ranked as one of the greatest places to live in the country, the city isn't all sunshine and lollipops due to its solid economy and a plethora of entertainment options. As a result, some areas aren't as appealing as others.

As a result, the topic of which Fresno neighborhoods are the worst and which are the finest emerges.

So, based on Areavibes' most current statistics, these are Fresno's top 3 most dangerous neighborhoods:

1) Central

Locals and visitors to Fresno may enjoy a variety of activities in and around downtown. From streetwear to the renowned Fulton mall to landmarks like the Grand 1401 events venue and the Fulton District Clocktower, downtown boasts various business and entertainment destinations.

On the other hand, the streets are bustling, with street art, modern galleries, and live music. Even though you're used to hearing this when you hear the word "downtown," you're hesitant to find out what it's like at night.

You should avoid going out at night in Central since the crime rate is 250 percent higher than the national average, with violent crime 396 percent higher.

Here, you have a one-in-twelve risk of becoming a victim of crime. If you get into trouble, it's a good idea to have some protection on hand, such as pepper spray or an alarm to notify or warn those nearby.

Cases of violent crime: 1,883

Cases of property crime: 6,832

Crimes per 100K people: 1,883

Chance of becoming a victim: 1 in 12 chance

Chance of becoming a victim of property crime: 1 in 15 chance

Chance of becoming a victim of violent crime: 1 in 54 chance

2) Edison

The Edison neighborhood is home to a diverse range of enterprises, from industrial to small-town eateries. It's also within easy reach of the airport, so it'll be the first area tourists see when they arrive.

Even if it's bustling during the day, you should avoid going on a late-night stroll without a trusted family member or friend.

In Edison, you have a one-in-26 chance of becoming a victim of crime, and crime rates are 60 percent higher than the national average, with violent and severe offenses 157 percent higher.

Cases of violent crime: 974

Cases of property crime: 3,009

Crimes per 100K people: 974

Chance of becoming a victim: 1 in 26 chance

3) Fresno-High

The neighborhood of Fresno-High has a total population of 56,759 people. According to Areavibes statistics, there are numerous schools, and it's a wonderful spot to raise a family.

However, other neighborhoods might appear sketchy at any time of day or night, and though they are not as dangerous as Downtown or Edison, you should still keep an eye on yourself and your family.

Here, the crime rate is 137 percent higher than the national average, with violent crime 137 percent higher.

In this neighborhood, you have a one in 17 chance of becoming a victim of crime.

Cases of violent crime: 899

Chance of becoming a victim: 1 in 17 chance
