I'm going to resist calling out cities that I have passed through
and thought to myself, wow it must suck to live here. In all
actuality nothing bad has ever happened to us in one of those cities.
Truth be told, we he have only been victimized by crime in the city
of Chicago ( not the burbs, where we spent a considerable time ).
We never had this issue in So Cal, of course there were a few earth quakes,
fires and floods, none of which effected us directly but unnerved us.
We actually considered Southern Utah, but found the people scarier than
anything Chicago or So Cal threw at us. I swear they have a mormon
identification system.

No, the fact that you can't afford to live in a nice part of Philly makes anywhere look like paradise...

And the fact that I get taunted by the local preppies just feeds into my hatred of the place ever more

I've been to all of these places and every state except Hawaii.

One can't put together a list without Detroit. Detroit also has a bleak future - more Auto layoffs- high taxes. It does have great old buildings but they are decaying.

Houston has been mentioned quite a bit. Houston is bad for pollution and was rated near the bottom in commuting both for time and danger (think Forbes had it), but its not totally blighted.

Amarillo hasn't been mentioned but its isolated, redneck and cold winds in the winter- smells like 10,000 cows going to the bathroom (that's because that's how many are actually s----ing at any given moment.

Niagara Falls- has chemical contamination, and the non-criminals are and have been leaving. It does have some nice old bulidings but high taxes.

El Paso is a really friendly and safe town -it got mentioned because of dust pollution - very dry.

Tucson is like El Paso with a much more crime.

Denver has horrible traffic but its otherwise nice.
