NYC...
Particularly Brooklyn...
Why do Eastern Parkway and Flatbush Ave have trash bags all over the sidewalks at all times of day, everyday?

London is actually very clean.. I also heard that NYC is very clean from what I have heard. Chinese cities often have high pollution although I am not sure.

Paris was not very dirty when I have been.. but certainly could have been cleaner

Hong Kong is dirty because of 75% visitors being Mainland Chinese.

I always had the impression that Asians were quite tidy people.. although where I work they are certainly messy with their plates at restaurants
