On Saturday dozens of people cleaned up what's been called 'the worst neighborhood in America.'

The Brannon Hill condos have become somewhat infamous in recent years.

People who live there have had to deal with condemned buildings and piles of trash and debris.

Last year crews began demolishing some of the abandoned units and on Saturday, a group of volunteers worked to further clean up the area.

The group picked up trash and cleared weeds.

Police officers, firefighters and people who live at Brannon Hill also helped out.

"We want the people, the children that go to our schools, the children that live in this community to feel they're not ashamed of where they live," said community organizer Samia Abdule.

This is the second time the community cleanup day has been held at Brannon Hill.
