Which American cities would you consider to be the most unpleasing to the eye (e.g.: too many strip malls, too many power lines, etc.)?

Houston always appears ugly/disorganized in photos. I think its the combo of the feeder roads and the huge billboards that line them, and the above ground power lines.

The only bright spots are the Plaza and the new Power and Light District Downtown.
The problem is way too many abandoned buildings, and crumbling brick buildings that are very unpleasing to the eye.

San Francisco is very dirty and has bums lying all over the streets. The city just doesn't look appealing within the limits once you get up close.

Well by your criteria, Houston would probably win this one. There are plenty of parts that are "nice." I guess people just have different tastes though.

I went to LA once and I thought it was pretty ugly with a lot of graffiti and barb wire. And the air was so brown I couldn't see any of the scenery of the surrounding hills.

If anyone dare mentions Scranton they're going to get a swift kick in the cajones and a lengthy photo tour of our historic districts! LOL!
