A neighborhood supposedly named "W. Lake St." is allegedly the most dangerous in the country, according to research by commercial real estate site NeighborhoodScout.com. However, a look at the area on EveryBlock shows a smattering of recent crime -- but quite a few new businesses.
CBS2 notes that the area used to include the Henry Horner Homes, but that notoriously dangerous CHA project was demolished in 2005. Another "neighborhood," called 4000 S. Federal St. in the report, also made the top 25 list. Half of it is a field.
