inner city gehennas
poor neighbourhood hells

I'd say sth. like that, considering this definition of inner city:
– an older part of a city, densely populated and usually deteriorating, inhabited mainly by poor, often minority, groups;

and these ones of Gehenna:
A place or state of torment or suffering.
The abode of condemned souls; hell.

(Both from American Heritage Dict.)
