My opinion boo !!!!! Nyc is 10 times dirtier than Atlanta . And i am not complaining i answered what the topic was about which was what city was the dirtiest city and cleaniest and i gave why. I never said Atlanta was the cleaniest and i never said it was dirty but the topic asked which was the dirtiest and from my experience NYc was , if i felt like Atlanta was then i would have said Atlanta.You feel like Atlanta is dirty thats your opinion Im not saying that you are conplaining or bashing because thats your opinion and your views. But dont come after me because i am only doing what the thread talked about. This is not an attack someone elses opinion thread. I respected your opinion can you please respect mine

And you were here long enough to see many locals throwing trash out the window, right? If you're a tourist, you can't tell the difference between a tourist and a local. When you live here, you can tell the difference.

Denver was pretty clean. A lot of Northeastern cities can be considered dirty (I've seen filthy sections of Boston, New York, Philly, D.C., Baltimore, etc as well as clean ones), but I don't know which I'd consider the dirtiest.

Denver was the cleanest I've seen (Seattle was close) and I'd have to go with Detroit as the dirtiest, but not by much. Calcutta, India (Kolkata) was a billion times dirtier than anything you've seen in the U.S. Hong Kong wasn't bad (though there were sections). Tokyo was impressive as was Madrid, Spain. Quebec City, Canada is pretty pristine and so is Toronto... very impressive for North American cities.

The streets are completely filled with trash, and the entire area smells like urine. To top that off, you can literally watch people shooting heroin in this area on a regular basis.

As for cleanest, I would say Portland, Oregon and San Diego, California.
Yes, anyone trying to claim L.A. is a clean place is out to lunch. Air is the worst in the country and some of the downtown districts are just as grit, grime and garbage filled as the worst anywhere else.

Portland and San Diego are pinnacles of cleanliness compared to LA, NYC, Chicago, Philly. Seattle is mid-pack at best...not anywhere near as clean as Portland.
