Hamilton is very 2 sided, the "mountain" is basically the poverty line of the city. The Mountain is overall very safe, just avoid the North Mountain {Concession St. Neighbourhoods Between Upper Gage/Upper Wentworth} Downtown though, {Lower Mountain} can be very dangerous, Especially East Of James/John St, Where most of the crime is located. There is also some pockets of the city along King/Main St E. That are dodgy. Most of the crime is petty, like homeless people breaking into vehicles, looting them. But some is violent. Most of the violent crime takes place on Barton St E. {Robberies, Shootings, Prostitution, Etc.} Anyways, just watch your back when youre downtown lol. Thanks for reading.

Crime is concentrated in the area East of James Street N. The further West you live in the city, the lower the crime rate. A lot of homeless and poor Whites in those areas.

There is a lot of crime here but trust me that it’s not as bad as London in the United Kingdom or Paris. Just be weary of your surroundings and you should be fine.
