Most Inconvenient United States Cities to Live In


The Top Ten

1 Detroit

The peoples be trippin' down in Detroit.

I'd say getting murdered is pretty inconvenient.

Come on. We're talking about Detroit.

Come on! they should have called this sin city! NOT Vegas!

2 New York City New York City The City of New York, often called New York City or simply New York, is the most populous city in the United States.

So right, New York City would be pure torture. Though, for recreation, it would be the place to go. That's not the point. So many things going on, and lots of cars... Just... UGH...

Very convenient: Good public transportation, very walkable.

I would get irritated at the taxi drivers constantly honking... They need to learn how to be patient.

3 Miami

Miami is a nice place to visit, not to live. It's expensive to live here, mostly due to paying for different types of insurance, like wind and car. The traffic and drivers are horrible, the roads are getting too small for the amount of people that live here, but I know it's not nearly as bad as L.A. or NYC. People who don't live here think it must be this relaxed place and that you go to South Beach every other weekend but it's not like that at all. Miami is a "hustle" city. Most people are very stressed and in a rush, which is why 80% of people are extremely rude and if you pause for 1.5 seconds after a light turns green, you will be honked at very loudly. I speak Spanish, but if you don't, it will be difficult to communicate with people in like 75% of Miami. I like other things about Miami, but honestly I'd rather live somewhere else

Miami is wonderful, it's beautiful and palm trees put the finishing touches!

I hate Miami.

4 Los Angeles

Too much fame, gangsters that kill people, and worst of all the Kardashians.

It should be second (just after Detroit) Ugly, racist and hostile city, you take Hollywood away and it's Salt Lake City.

Hate to live here

I went there...
It was scary

5 Chicago Chicago more.

I believe that Chicago is just misunderstood. I mean it has the most gangs in the us and it is the most corrupt. This city is the best. I was born and raised there. Income is great, lifestyle is great. Sure, people make some statements like, "OHHH CHICAGO HAS SO MANY HOMICIDES AND MURDERS" well, that makes no sense. Hb detroit? Hb new orleans? Chicago is basically a normal metropolitan.

6 Dallas
7 Jackson City
8 Las Vegas Las Vegas Las Vegas, officially the City of Las Vegas and often known simply as Vegas, is the 28th-most populated city in the United States, the most populated city in the state of Nevada, and the county seat of Clark County.

This place is really horrible, I hope people in Las Vegas would reconsider. PLEASE! I can't feel at least safe walking in the streets.

9 Seattle Seattle Seattle is a seaport city on the west coast of the United States. It is the seat of King County, Washington.

Seattle is a great place to live. Very nice people there. They don't even have the most crowded streets either. There are only a few PARTS of Seattle that are somewhat dangerous, and things like gangs are not very common. Maybe three are there. If anything, Tacoma is worse than seattle. Drug dealers, gangs, tons of racism, homeless people, and most of the houses there are crappy and barely bigger than a classroom. There are a few places there that have good houses and nice neighbourhoods but not many. While Seattle is near Tacoma, it isn't Tacoma. And, yes. People do hate on Seattle a lot, but only because they are trying to demene the best football team in the NFL: The Seahawks. The person who added this is just jealous that their citie's football team sucks ass compared to the seahawks. - username34

I grew up in Seattle- or more accurately was forced to spend most of my childhood in American's most overrated city- and Seattle SUCKS! Lousy weather- and yes it really does rain all the time- and unfriendly people who to this day still whine and cry and complain about the departure of a basketball team SEVEN YEARS AGO does not a great city make.

Definitely the most dangerous and crowded streets in america, at least if its opposite day, don't get why people hate up here in the PNW so much

10 Tallahassee

The Contenders

11 Philadelphia Philadelphia Philadelphia is the largest city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the sixth-most populous city in the United States, with an estimated population of 1,567,872 and more than 6 million in the seventh-largest metropolitan statistical area, as of 2016. Philadelphia is the economic and cultural anchor more.
12 San Francisco San Francisco  San Francisco, officially the City and County of San Francisco, is the cultural, commercial, and financial center of Northern California.

Very expensive.. More expensive‚Äč than LA.. Maybe even more expensive than Hawaii!

13 Houston
14 New Orleans

I like America. I really do. But New Orleans appeals very little. - PositronWildhawk

15 San Diego San Diego

Yes, its horribly inconvenient to live here.
No matter what, DO NOT MOVE HERE.
You will hate it, hate it, hate it.
Stay exactly where you are now!

16 Washington D.C.
17 Gary, Indiana

I drove through here once to get to Chicago from Michigan. I didn't feel safe, tons of pollution, and gangs everywhere! I read that basically, everything was shut down and 90% of all the houses there are abandoned. At least it's near Chicago...

Inconviniet because of the perpetual threat of being shot - noahkirch

18 Birmingham, AL

Nothing is convenient, want your car to get towed? How about a stop sign ticket? How about some nasty southerner neighbors?

There is nothing to do here, nothing!

19 Salt Lake City
20 Boston Boston

Easily America's most overrated city.

I'm sorry, but compared to San Francisco, LA, and NYC, how is Boston overrated? I live in MA myself, and I hear more about California and New York than my own state! And plus, we can all tell, NYC is the most OVERRATED city in the American population! - kaitlynrad11

Fair traffic...Worst road rage.
Still my favorite city...
