Name a US City you don't like and why?

So, let it out, badmouth a sizable US City and tell us why you dont like the place.



To make this work, folks, dont take it personal if someone doesnt like where you live. It is what it is.

Decatur, Illinois. Omnipresent ADM stench permeating everything, 24/7 overrides its good qualities, of which there are few, in the first place.

Baltimore. From what I have seen, it is a trashy city (literally), filled with mostly trashy people. I have been there twice, out of necessity, and I hope to never go again.

Washington D.C. - Has a way of making their stench reach me that most cities don't.

Sacramento, CA - Same reason, Basically.

Los Angeles - If you've ever had a next-door neighbor who let his dog crap in your yard and didn't pick it up... Multiply that by, let's say... 18million? They recently passed an ordinance whereby, anyone convicted of a "gang-related" offense, released on parole, must move some distance (60-80miles?) from the neighborhood in which they were arrested. For 10pts extra credit, any guess what effect this ordinance has had on surrounding communities?


Most other cities I only care about at election time. If their "dis-advantaged youth" want to shoot each other in dirty alleys... Really not my problem.

I'm sure I've offended someone. Allow me to take this opportunity to anticipate your request for an apology and premptively invite you to kick rocks.


ETA: Hey, Bakersfield! Not putting you on this list, 'cause your people are pretty cool, but WHAT IS THAT SMELL?!

North Philly! At every stoplight through there, hoodlums were walking up to whiteys in the car.
New Orleans after dark is a mess too.

There are actually some pretty nice parts of D.C. I go down there on a fairly regular basis. However, if you look at it as a whole, it is a cesspool.

Atlanta. Traffic, people (quantity). Oh, and all those people have cars and they are in traffic.

New Orleans. Visited in 2002. Hated every moment. Even the fun airboat ride to see the alligators nest was a torture because of the heat and humidity. I was the one cheering for Katrina to put this place next to Atlantis.

No offense to those of you who live there but it also felt quite unsafe and I hate needs and drunk people.

San Francisco.

Born and raised, lived there until I was ten. Visited many times over the years because half my family live in and around it.

Hate it for the stinking liberal hellhole it has become.

And Detroit. The Unions wanted to build Paradise, this is a close as it comes for them.

I'm not looking at it as a "city", just the source of laws I don't like. I understand parts of it resemble Beirut, other parts are worth seeing, and I hope to see it one day. My objection is that it exports BS the way KY exports bourbon. Chicago is probably nastier to live in than DC, but DC is much nastier to have to live with.

L.A. Smoggy temple to the automobile.

And anywhere east of the Rockies.

(Except for Ausome and San Antonio.)

St Louis. I got mugged right out of the bus station. I was just a drifting, I didn't even have any money. Haha, I got the last laugh except that it hurt to laugh.

Minneapolis, visited more times than I care to. Worthless liberal cesspool, largely due to the corrupt leadership which caters to a population of handout addicts.

It's not everyone from Oakland, some of them just can't afford the rent in SF. Anyone wearing a Raiders' jersey, though... Avoid, flee, shoot, lawyer. That order. It's not oaklandians, it's Raider fans.

ETA: to save you some time, look up "Cincinnatus" not "Cincinnati".
