I remember driving through New York between Virginia and Rhode Island, back when I was in the Navy and before I became urbanized. Heading north on the bottom level of the George Washington bridge, got stuck too far right and ended up leaving I-95 - next thing I knew, I was in some shithole neighborhood in the Bronx. I just remember everything was differing shades of brown; the air, the buildings, the people, the grass. Terrifying at the time, but I later lived in neighborhoods in Chicago that were probably worse. At least I didn't hear any gunshots.
