An improperly, overused word that most teenagers and young adults use to describe something that is old, run down, or dirty. The correct defintion is: a quarter of a city in which members of a minority group live especially because of social, legal, or economic pressure
Teenagers say "ghetto" all the time and they have no idea what the word really means. New York city is a place that had many "ghettos" in the early part of the 20th century.
