Labeled a "high-intensity" drug trafficking area by the Department of Justice, Baltimore has seen an increase in gang-related activity over the past several years.
The city recorded 196 murders in 2011 -- the fifth highest murder rate in the nation -- and roughly 70% of the victims were involved in the drug trade, according to the Baltimore Police Department.
The city also landed in the top 10 for both robberies (ranking seventh) and assaults (placing ninth).
From Los Altos, Calif. to Brooklyn, N.Y., these 20 cities had the highest number of home sales exceeding $1 million during the 12 months ended June 30, 2013.
