Did not get a dirty impression in Dallas at all. Quite the opposite. Driving from Addison through North Dallas and over by SMU/Uptown. Very nice and last I checked most of that was the City of Dallas. Of course there's a dumpy dirtier part of any big city.

San Francisco is probably dirtier then Dallas.

As a first time visitor to Minneapolis this past summer we were very impressed with how nice and clean it was, Gold star to Minneapolis. Of all the cities I have been to New Orleans would be the worst with Memphis not far behind.

I think I've been in every metro over a million except Phoenix. I can't say I have ever noticed any difference in the cleanliness of any city. They are all the same. In a windy place, more trash blows around, In a humid place, the air holds the smells longer. Newly-paved streets do not make a city clean, nor do recycling bins..

You and I can both go to the same city, and if I drive down one street and you drive down another, one of us will call the place dirty and the other clean.

Philly is the dirtiest Ive ever seen. Just looking at what you see when you get off the plane is a portent of filth to come

PHILADELPHIA is the filithiest of them all. I know because I lived here and I had lived in MIami and Atlanta before. I am just being frank here.

New York is actually clean. They just have that old city look. Philly is just old and dirty,
Working in Center City and saw vomit on the streets too often.
And outside the center city (city hall) perimeter, they never clean the streets.

Seattle is very very clean one could almost eat off the floor of the light rain (Although I wouldnt) , Also Denver was nearly spotless.


Baltimore, Philly, New Orleans.

LA has some really clean areas and then some really dirty ones too kinda like NYC. meh.

New Orleans for dirtiest.

Downtown Indianapolis was well kept and clean from what I could see.

Charlotte, Raleigh, San Diego, and Denver all struck me as being particularly clean.

For a metro of over 5 million, I think DC does very well.
