look up any word, like ratchet:
Trashy, unclean, gang-ridden.

If you want to experience what the movies portray when a filthy neighborhood is overtaken by gangs and crime visit Riverdale Maryland.

There is endles graffitti, run down houses, and even most chain stores do not last long in this place. Do not walk alone outside at dark, and it most likely isnt safe during the day.
squalor is to Riverdale, Maryland as real is to truth
