Unfairly and due to an old stereotype E l Paso will be added to this list by some. I lived there for a bit but will say that I liked that soutwestern city. Sure its on the border but so what? It is consistently one of the safest cities in the US, a growing city and one of the sunniest! Cost of living is good and the architecture and natural surroundings are impressive. Its climate is perfect!

Maybe moreso in more rural parts of Upstate NY, but more populated areas of Upstate NY are more balanced or indifferent. Usually it has more to do with laws where it is more relevant in NYC, but not necessarily for the rest of the state covering or encompassing the whole state.

Back in August we crossed the US/Canada border near Bonner's Ferry, Idaho. While the border agent was looking at our passports she made a comment about drinking the water. We were confused. We thought we had missed something and we shouldn't have been drinking the water in British Columbia for some reason. It eventually dawned on me that she was holding my Michigan driver's license and was referring to Flint. I told her I lived 350 miles away from Flint and water is not an issue for me.

My vote goes to Flint as well.

Chip and Joanna are trying to give the city a makeover, but (for now) at the end of the day it's still Waco.
Coming from someone who's never lived anywhere close to Texas, I feel like Texas is one of those places whose state name carries more weight and conjures more opinions than any one city can. I have visited two major cities in Texas and have heard about several others. None of them have as big a reputation as the entire state of Texas. But that's just my humble opinion of a non-local. Maybe Texans have their own red-headed state stepchild.

Fayetteville had historically been the whipping boy of North Carolina but it's certainly doesn't deserve its reputation. Some other, smaller, cities are far worse but they aren't as widely known.
