St. Louis just won more than the World Series. Besides being #1 in baseball this year, St. Louis was deemed this year's most dangerous city. Number 2, also in both baseball and danger, is Detroit.
On the scale of 1 to 371 (with 1 as safest, 371 as most dangerous), Seattle weighs in at position 262. The safest city is Brick NJ. The safest city in the Pacific NW is Bellevue at 57, the most dangerous is Tacoma at 324. New York City, my hometown, is 145.
