Ten dimensions from the affective domain are proposed as characterizing the major attitudesand feelings found in areas of high crime in cities. These dimensions are related to apreviously proposed model of community differentiation by the author, that tried to summarizethe range of features that cause community or residential areas to differ from oneanother. It is suggested that these crime area dimensions are variations of the previouslyproposed dimensions rather than unique sources of differentiation.
