Detroit. I can't see myself living in that city at all. I've had a fantastic time the few times I was in Detroit, but a large majority of the city itself doesn't seem to be exceptionally livable for obvious reasons.

Many of the Detroit suburbs, however, are some of the nicest in the country and if I were to someday decide to start living a suburban lifestyle, I would definitely consider Metro Detroit...but I don't see myself heading for a suburban lifestyle anytime soon.

(by major Us cities, I'm assuming 350K+ pop)
There's a few.

Jacksonville- It resembles a gigantic redneck suburb in a lot of the city. (which is too much of a cultural shock for me to even think of living) It's also has horrible weather (IMO) and a shabby downtown for such a size.

Miami- I know I'm picking on FL (sorry) but it's just far away from my living desires. It's too hot/mild for too much of the year, the economy is a well known disaster, and I rather live in a place where the majority of the residents speak English as their first language. Crime is also becoming more and more of an issue there. (I want positive change, not negative.)

Detroit- It's (for the most part) Run-down, crime filled, and in desperate need of a revival.

Los Angeles- The overall hype is rather a let down once you visit the place. The weather IMO sucks, It's also hard to fit in judging on where your limited budget throws you. I'd also like to mention that the stereotype for LA's people as air-headed and seemingly slow isn't as bad as the media makes them out to be, but it's bad enough for me to not want to live among the people that fit the criteria.

Atlanta- It's in the south for one, which is one thing I'm not fit for, the weather sucks IMO, and I also don't like the idea that the cost of living and growth is rising when its crime rates are an issue that's not doing much of anything but being high.

no I said that I would not live in any of the cities above the sunbelt states and people are coming back down on the southern cities but thats ok...
You don't have to live in Atlanta and thats cool but I know that 5.6 million people do... Atlanta is not the crime out city that people try to make it out to be.. Its just like any other major city, it has its dangerous points, buts its not a war down here like people will make you think it is..

New York City

Too stressed, too dense, too many fake liberals

1st runnerup would be Phoenix (can anyone say boring)

2nd runnerup is Vegas, one word: cheesy
