Capitol Hill is weird. The whole city is but a few neighborhoods in particular feel like small towns that feel both southern and northern. The rowhouses with set-backs, all the trees, Capitol Hill feels like it could be in Charleston, SC IMO looks wise. That and the military presence makes the place feel like Parris Island.

Well the closest West Virginia comes to being depressing is probably Huntington and Wheeling. In the Huntington area, Ironton Ohio and Ashland Kentucky feel more depressing than Huntington does.

However overall I'd have to say Union City, Newark, and Camden all in New Jersey were the most depressing. Philadelphia is pretty bad too.

For me, Saint Louis seemed kind of erie except for downtown. The whole rest of the city seemed creepy though. Same with teh Metro East of STL. I also thought Kansas City Kansas (not the MO side which is pretty awesome) kind of had a creepy dumping ground kind of vibe to it.

Ducktown, TN. More generally anywhere in the void between Cleveland, TN and Cherokee, NC. Last summer on a road trip with my girlfriend, our route-providing service (which shall remain nameless), decided the best route from Nashville to Cherokee involved avoiding I-40 altogether. Normally this wouldn't be a bad idea, despite this route traversing through a couple national forests-the "scenic" option, if you will...except by the time we finished our dinner in Chattanooga, the sun was setting over Lookout Mountain and the beginning of a very, very long and nerve-wracking drive was upon us.

After the first hour of total darkness, eerie mist, and feelings of pretty much complete dread on the part of my girlfriend, I pulled her Prius up to the first signs of life that we found at a Ducktown filling station right before the NC border. There were several trucks full of locals hanging out in the parking lot, seemingly just to "be" there. As this was a Sunday night, we found it particularly odd...and I'm from a place where people hanging out in trucks is fairly common. After my girlfriend did her thing inside, we immediately kept going into several more odd hours of intensely heavy fog, sharp curves, and considerable elevation gained/lost through a part of the world that felt totally lost from what we knew. And turned out to be totally beautiful during daylight, of course. But man, that was a drive/route I won't be wanting to ever have to do in those circumstances again.
