Rundown segregated areas

Run-down areas are reduced to or fallen into partial ruin or decay, as from age, wear, or neglect. As a result living conditions are below standard and an effort needs to be made to ensure the area will be safe, livable and affordable where services are accessible to all residents. Highly segregated areas differ from ’normal’ city neighbourhoods regarding their one-sided social structure (’ghettoes’ of the poor or conglomerates of the rich).
