A cold, wet, windy, snowy place, nothing worse than being cold except wet & cold.

My vote would go to Gary, IN. I grew up about 2 hours south of Gary and one time when I was in high school we played a regional football game in Gary. Not only were their armed guards at the football game but several people's hubcaps were stolen during the game and our fan bus was vandalized. Gary also has one of the highest (if not THE highest) crime rates for a city of its size. Needless to say, I won't EVER be going back to visit Gary.

My votes: Las Vegas (horrid dump), Phoenix (dusty, hot, dry horrid dump), Detroit (steaming pile of dump), Memphis (boring, ghetto dump) and pretty much all Eastern Tennessee (can you say "pits"?).

How about Aroostook County, Maine? NO jobs, NOTHING to do, MISERABLY cold...I don't think there's been a house built since 1940 since everyone keepps leaving. All of the paper mills seem to be closing. There seems to be just one in these one horse towns. Once they close, the whole town dies. Nothing but empty sorefronts in downtown Presque Isle...just cold, gray, and depressing. They have eight months of winter...most of the houses look like they haven't been painted since 1947. Mos of those look like they should be condemned since many seem to be leaning to one side. People use plastic rap to cover u ptheir doors and windows because n oone can afford to remodel and its just SO cold ALL the time. Other than that, it's pretty much just trailers. If you love winter, have no need for a job, or excitement of any kind, move there.

In terms of a specific city, I'd say Camden, NJ... although as a Philly native, I do have sympathy for the residents across the river.

On the other end of the spectrum, any suburb that is filled with McMansions and is neither racially diverse (no matter who the majority happens to be) nor convenient to mass transit.

Worst places: Anywhere in flat, swampy, humid Louisianna, Miami (really any place near South Florida), Detriot Mi, Oklahoma, the Baltimore area.
