With crime rates dropping on average nationwide, residents in some of the country's most violent cities didn't have much to celebrate.

Violent crime dropped in only half of the cities ranked by Law Street as the nation's top ten most violent.

The site looked at murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault numbers in the first six months of 2013 and compared them to those same numbers in 2012. The data was based on the FBI's Uniform Crime Report. Law Street only considered cities with at least 200,000 residents, which means towns like Flint, Mich., were spared a spot on the list. Take a look at the results in the slideshow below.
