This Flickr blog post
about the project to map Kibera
(perhaps the largest slum in Africa
) has left me thinking: what is the largest slum in the Americas? In North America? In the United States?

I apologize if that question seems vague, but I get conflicting and/or irrelevant results when I try and use Google to answer these. Plus, I'm a bit stymied by the question of whether or not we even say we have slums in the US, or whether or not we call them "blighted areas" or "economically disadvantaged high-density neighborhoods" or something along those lines.
