DETROIT (WWJ) – Forbes magazine is giving Detroit the title of “Most Dangerous City in America.”

It’s the fourth year in a row the city’s violent crime rate has earned it the distinction.

What does this mean as thousands of out-of-towners get set to travel to the Motor City for the World Series?

Renee Monforton, of the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau says, not much.

“There is crime, it’s typically centered in pockets, where there might be a lot of poverty, unfortunately, or perhaps from not so many educational opportunities,” said Monforton.

“Downtown, where the center of activity is , where most of the marquee sporting events including the World Series is, it doesn’t have a history of major crime.”

Monforton says most people who visit the area avoid the more dangerous parts.
