An annual list of the most dangerous cities in America was released for 2013 and unfortunately NJ has the distinction of making the list.

2 New Jersey cities, not only made the list, but they both were in the top-10. Newark, for all its controversy, surprisingly, did not make the top-10. Newark came in #51 on the list, right behind Philadelphia.

Atlantic City, the town that NJ is trying to market into a tourist destination, was voted the 7th most dangerous city in America, while Camden was voted the 2nd most dangerous, coming in only behind East St. Louis, Illinois.

Camden, with a community of over 77,000, reportedly experiences a 1 in 36 chance of being victimized by a violent crime. A resident's chance of falling victim to a violent or property-related crime is 1 in 11.

Don't worry NJ, if you're looking for the bright side, it could be much worse as Michigan has 4 cities in the top 10. To view the entire list, click here.
