Staten Island is more a Red-headed stepchild of NYC than it is hated....To be hated means being paid attention to in the first place..

Texans that don't live in the Houston or DFW areas don't care too much for either of those towns. I don't know how many people I've heard say they live as close to Houston as they want to be, about 250 miles away.

Also, El Paso seems like it's ignored by the rest of the state and I think they feel like they are ignored by the ret of the state. I very seldom ever hear anything at all about El Paso unless the subject of their neighbor across the river, Juarez, Mexico comes up.

I think in Indiana, outside of Lake County, most Hoosiers would be more than happy to let Illinois have Gary, Hammond and East Chicago and all of their crime, corruption, poverty, and the whole mess. I never heard anybody say anything good or positive about Gary. I've heard it said nothing good ever comes out of Gary or East Chicago and to some extent, Hammond. I think that whole area identifies more with Chicago than it does Indiana, anyway. And they seem to think the rest of Indiana is racist so I think they'd be more than happy to be sold or given to Illinois.

I live in Washington and most people hate Yakima and to a lesser extent Central Washington. My home state people outside of Portland hate Portland as it seems. Coos Bay has a major meth problem and no one I know in real life in the forum would recommend anyone going to that dump.

Texas - If you're from Houston, you don't like DFW. If you're from DFW, you don't like Houston. Which one is more disliked? I would guess Dallas, because the more recognition you have the more haters you get. DFW has had recognition longer than Houston has, so people have had more time to make an opinion/come up with stereotypes and generalizations. I grew up in Arlington, and I've been to Midland, Odessa, Abilene, Tyler, Wichita Falls, Lubbock, Austin, Waco, San Antonio, Galveston, and Houston. Only place I've gotten negative comments about DFW was in Houston. I guess the Rio Grande Valley might be disliked because it's different than the rest of Texas.

Florida - Jacksonville easily. It's a large city of nothing. No one even tries to defend it. South Florida gets hated on a lot too. I don't know about the 3rd world pit stuff, but outside of the beach, it really isn't that great.

Speaking for myself:

In Massachusetts it would be Taunton/Raynham, Roxbury/Mattapan, parts of Lowell/Lawrence, and parts of Lynn/Revere.

In New York Upstate around Rome/Utica, Buffalo/Niagara, Watertown.

In California the central valley from Stockton down to Bakersfield.

I would say on a whole NE ohio and (cleveland metro) Central Ohio (columbus metro) both have a general dislike towards SW Ohio. If SW ohio was not in the state Ohio would no longer swing. SW ohio is the most conservative region in the state, is the most "southern", and has a generally very different culture.

The crummy parts of Baltimore proper are probably the most hated by most Marylanders.

Though my least favorite part of the state is the third-ring suburbs of DC like Germantown and Gaithersburg.

People in Cincinnati dislike Cleveland. It works both ways.
