    Three of the country's most dangerous urban places are in Chicago's Englewood neighborhood.

    Chicago is home to four of the top 25 most dangerous "neighborhoods" in the country, including a sliver of Washington Park that ranked No. 2, a recently released study of FBI crime statistics shows.

    Folks who lived near 55th and State -- less than two miles from President Obama's house and the possible site of a future Olympic stadium -- had a 1-in-4 chance of becoming a victim of violent crime each year between 2005 and 2007, according to NeighborhoodScout.com.

    Chicago's three other danger zones are located in poverty-stricken Englewood, a hot bed for violence in recent years, the Sun-Times reports Tuesday.
