That's not always true though. I live in the city and I know vaguely which suburbs have bad reputations, but I wouldn't know which specific areas are the "bad neighborhoods". And while you might be able to tell you're in a bad area once you're there, #2's comment seemed to be implying that the OP should have been able to tell they were entering a bad area just by looking around, and it isn't always that simple. It's not like there are signs around the entrance to bad neighborhoods, or the sky suddenly darkens as soon as you're on "the wrong side of the tracks" so to speak.
Ot's not a St.Louis thing I've lived in St. Louis AND DC and i've spent some time in a couple other places too. I know when I'm in a good neighborhoid vs a bad one. However in DC they are very xlose together and you can walk through both multiple times on your way to the store. It's kind of amusing.
