Top Ten Worst Cities In the United States


The Top Ten

1 Detroit, Michigan

I live right off Eight Mile, and have worked in Detroit as a delivery driver for a few years. I have never been robbed although there are hundreds and thousands of abandoned houses some blocks have one occupied house plenty of blocks have none. But being an outsider, you can drive through Detroit and have nothing to worry about. It's when you are in area's you do not belong when you are in danger, mainly engaging in illegal activities like drugs. Unfortunately there are a lot of innocent people who do get robbed and unfortunately murdered. So in closing Detroit is a rough run down City with limited police resources. The new mayor is trying to help bring it back but it is an uphill battle that is being lost. But Detroit has a stigma for being very bad and dangerous when in all actuality if you are not somewhere you shouldn't be like buying drugs or committing crimes and you are just minding your own business, 99.9% of the time, you will be just fine.

Super dangerous, tons of crime, and BANKRUPT. I live an hour away from Detroit. Most of the suburbs are nice, mainly Macomb and Oakland county (I have two houses, one in Rochester and one in Saint Clair Shores ) But anyways, Detroit sucks. By the way, if you're moving to the suburbs 5 minutes from Detroit, bring a gun... You're gonna need it...

2 Englewood, Bergen County, New Jersey

Terrible cruel people like to watch children and people suffer. So many there hurt and afraid, try to stay safe hiding in their homes but fail. Worst corruption and organized crime and terror working together behind a veil of the worst dirtiest jurisprudence in history, censorship and cruelty to any who won't keep quiet. Any who could expose put in grave danger, leave and don't come back is good advice. People only stay because they don't believe the system and many evil people could be that bad, only listen to lawyers after too late. Read up on the holocaust and see what communities caused it, to whom and why, more common than most think and so is the blowback.

Only devout racists and hateful radicals should move to Bergen County, in and around Englewood and the filthy County Capital Hackensack, unless you watching your loved ones being slowly eaten alive. Not much different in much of Central or North Jersey, across from the big cities are the worst.

Many Englewood people suffer constant harassment, torture and defamation and character assassination and worse to people and their children. Schools are dangerous. Web search on all the drive by murders, police torture videos and multii-million dollar suits and charges against Englewood police and city. Bergen County known for Islamic and Libyan Terror with many ISIS and al-Qaeda arrests and FBI targeting Hackensack high schools to stop ISIS infiltration with videos, many school bomb threats with bomb threats also to Bergen County Court House Judges who have the worst reputation in the United States, even ordering 'forced injectible psychotropics' to parents trying to save their kids from criminal abduction and involuntary commitment to terrible centers such as Bergen Regional Medical Center, all reminiscent of history's worst including Edwin Ellenbogen the NJ State Eugenicist and original State Psychologist who was sentenced to life imprison for the sole responsibility of the murder ...more - johnf

Englewood police known to residents as the worst dangerous corrupt thugs in the US making 5 times police salaries with ex-police chiefs among others known for canvassing neighborhood terrorizing women and children in their homes and schools to drum up hundreds of false arrests against parents and harming children.

3 Chicago, Illinois

Seriously, Chicago invented the skyscraper, Ferris wheel and Cartoon, it's got more history than most cities as young as it is. what type of idiot would vote this as bad?

An idiot that is not blind to the black-on-black genocide that occurs in this city every single day, despite never reaching our T.V. screens. An idiot who sees through the bull stories of white cops shooting black civilians, when everyday there are more black civilians killed by fellow black civilians. These stories never make the news because they can't be glamorized and marketed into a national sensation like a white cop shooting a black man who was coming at him aggressively. That's the type of idiot that would vote for Chicago on this list. Guess that makes me one. - theOpinionatedOne

Why is Chicago on this list. I live here and I love it.

There is absolutely no reason to ever live to Chicago. Horrible weather, corrupt politicians, extremely high amount of crime, and an absurd amount of taxes are only a few reasons to leave. Chicago was also the only major metropolitan area to lose population. No one has any proposal to fund the pensions, and the state is completely bankrupt. Do yourself a favor and steer away from this hell hole. Many other great cities to visit and move to, and this one is pretty close to the bottom of the barrel.

Why is Chicago higher than Camden and Englewood, Bergen County, New Jersey? At least there is still stuff to do in Chicago and there are still good areas in the north side. - TheBMWNerd29880

4 Camden, New Jersey

Who says it's just oppressed Camden. Don't think Democratic Fascist/Communist New Jersey and police have been keeping it that way for decades along with Newark - they say so in wealthy parts of Cherry Hill, doubt Princeton much better. And Islamic Patterson? Try the rest of Camden County and even worse Bergen County for the real terror and organized crime and corrupt friends. Don't forget where the 9/11 terrorists came from or Cherry Hill Fort Dix Terrorist. The 9/11 pilots leisurely drove into NYC after spending a nice summer in North Jersey. The WTC bombers leisurely flew back from Jersey City after a week or so, must have been bored. Camden is too poor for them to live and they use them anyway, apparently target practice and maybe arms and drug sales and the best medical practice for all those young doctors to learn - on gunshot wounds - little Hitlers, just ask. Experimental drugs need someone to practice on especially kids. Doctor's from the South Side of Chicago are pretty clear ...more

Even leaving the crime rate (which is considerable) out of the question, have you seen it? It's hideous!

First of all, this should be 2nd (above Chicago, NYC, and Anchorage). The crime rate is TERRIBLE. Chicago and NYC are good, and Anchorage is very good so I don't know why it's there.

Well it is close to Philadelphia... - Gabriola

5 Trenton, New Jersey

Child Trafficking Capital of the World with NJ DCF and DCPP violently abducting 8,000 children every year for $1.7 Billion and handing to the worst low quality families on record, usually from down under and try to take the kids there, bunched into 6 in a small lice and rotten food ridden nightmare to be beaten and starved until sold in another country or 18 and thrown out on the street to join the worst human and sex trafficking industry in the world. Parens Patriae is from the Dark Ages and sells and traffics children while stealing from the social security fund through SSACT Title IV resulting in 'legal kidnapping' and crimes against humanity against the children and families of New Jersey.

Trenton is the capital of the worst most corrupt state in America. How bad can it be? The absolute worst of the worst.

Trenton has one of the most poor, uneducated and crime-ridden demographics in the United States. All the Cities in New Jersey are bad Except Cherry Hill? They're all bad. Cherry Hill is full of terrorists (Fort Dix Terrorists), terror-causing groups (JDL types), hate groups, reverse hate groups, violent schools and dangerous people all hiding under the New Jersey concealment and censorship of a scared silent media (Menendez parents and Reisenbach Nightmare on Jane/Grenwich Street Murders).

All the cities (except for Cherry Hill) are the worst because it's New Jersey! It sucks in New Jersey and also in New York.

6 Hackensack, New Jersey

Worst criminal corruption in US cause most terror in the US and world today. Hackensack filthy capital of terrorists and corruption working together in one building City Hall/Courthouse devolving from there. Prosecutor, sheriff, police and officials (State, County and Local) worst abusive criminals in US and cause or center of most Islamic, Libyan, Neo-Nazi terror in US and NYC and 9/11 attacks and more recent. Chief of Detectives Sherman shot wife in head with police gun claimed suicide, then committed as arraigned, more recent head shooting'terror' related.

Horrific Hackensack Chief judge for the County recently ruled 'behavioral modification' with drugging of innocent healthy children in schools is 'standard' and stated parents complaining must be delusional and unstable. Parents of girls who are intelliigent, have great self-control and maturity and even considered 'sweet' are complaining their children have been involuntary subjected to these 'treatments' and are aftraid of schools with children reporting (corrupt) DYFS and police presence in schools watching children. Many kids taken and placed with 'foster parents' known to be starved and beaten/bruised with complaints going unanswered or children then victimized with many parents 'terrified' after talking to DCPP case workers or school authorities including the best medical professionals leaving the country after extreme abusive contact. Others bringing suit.

Bergen Regional Medical Center where the worst DCF/DCPP/DYFS (failed federal oversight since 1999) take State abducted children to permanently involuntarily institutionalize, drug, abuse and medically torture (like Justina Pelletier) recently changed their name to the New Bridge Medical Center to hide their horrific past once they became known terorrizing and torturing Bergen County New Jersey children and parents. Beware the New Jersey Family Division Judges now under federal civil rights complaints and charges for horrific terror to children.

Hackensack capital of Bergen County New Jersey Worst hellish nightmare Court (Judge and sociopathic DCPP henchmen among others) orders forced injected psychotropics to anyone they victimize or want to keep quiet about severe corruption, malfeasance and abuse and orders forced non-consensual committment to the worst involuntary medical centers in history to children (including Bergern Regional Medical Center) to permanent harm with dangerous experimental psychotropics and overdosing until they can't speak and suffer nightmarish horrors.

Stay away and keep your children and families safe from these monsters until better federal oversight becomes available, allready have federal oversight as the worst in US but has failed to protect the people and children of Bergen County from their literal Hell. Suicide and terror common to those whom they commit crimes against and try to keep quiet about their corruption, terror and worst racism/aparthied crimes against humanity. New Jersey ...more

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

I have lived in NYC my whole life, and let me tell you something. This city used to be great. Then, it became so safe that the slightest incident of violence is considered a crime against humanity (although there are murders everyday). the people here (mainly non locals and al sharpton) complain about every little thing that happens in the city and labels it as racist. Many people come here from around the country, mainly coming from towns with 2,000 people, and they are complete hipsters. They thin the only thing to New York is manhattan, so they rent an apartment on 5th ave in manhattan along with their 17 roommates. Not that the locals don't have roommates, its that these no locals are living in expensive places a week after moving in, when some 5th generation New Yorkers who have worked their butts off their whole lives can't even buy these places, when they are the ones who ruined it. on top of that, these non locals mostly come from conservative states, but for some reason they ...more

I lived here for a long time and so glad I moved down south to Florida. New York sucks and is highly overrated. All the people there hate each other, no one has manners, and all the buildings look the same now because these Hipsters bought and knocked down the unique and detailed buildings that were once there, then turned them into generic looking high rise condo garbage. Not to mention it's full of trash, there are homeless people everywhere (regardless whether they are good or bad people), the rents are ridiculous, and everything is unaffordable. Also, there's Police involved shootings here constantly and everyone who runs this city is a greedy politician who only cares about money and attention to themselves. Absolutely terrible place to live. I really hate this city and so glad I left.

Look, New York City. You go to your local train station and enter Grand Central. You will go out through the doors and there it is! New York City! The place where you see these people walk around. Guys with NO shirts, women with crazy dresses in their bags, and people walking around in theses creepy costumes (like a Shrek costume) taking selfiess to little kids. You also see on some certain parts, there are shady places where buildings are dirty, and people never come in them or Come OUT. I heard LOTS of shows take place in NYC. Well, it has too much buildings and no place for a person to live, except really EXPENSIVE hotels. Make it take place in a state that MATTERS! Like Connecticut. NYC just sucks in ALL of the attention. Then, who needs Hollywood?! You also see a lot of men with zits walking around wearing jackets. And that is where the 911 event happened.
So there it is, the one and only New York City! Never go there.

Its huge!

8 Cleveland, Ohio

Cleveland is the most miserable city to live in, after Detroit for obvious reasons. The weather is ridiculous, the sports are awful, the police are almost as bad as the rampant crime, the city is filled with homeless because the economy here has not recovered, which is also why there's so many boarded up businesses and homes. The only saving grace is it's cheap (comparatively) because no one wants to live in the mistake on the lake. - klue

YouTube Search: "HASTILY MADE CLEVELAND TOURISM VIDEO" & "Hastily Made Cleveland Tourism Video: 2nd Attempt". Both videos summarise Cleveland very well.

Homeless, street gangs, crack cocaine, boarded up homes and closed factories dominate both Cleveland and East Cleveland.

At least we're not as rude or terrible as Boston or New York City!

9 Newark, New Jersey

Used to live near there. Driving in some neighborhoods looked like scenes of bombed cities in wwii films. And lots of gang activity.

Highest crime rate, slummy, dangerous, ranked one of the worst 5 cities in the United States. Organized crime central in New Jersey including the 5 families.

I was there with several people whose company I enjoyed and a Brazillain and Mexican and while they pretended to be nice in that 'in' area I would be afraid to walk 1 block along at night, I had a very uneasy feeling like something bad was going to happen to the nice guy wishing good will towards all - like right idea wrong place.

Had the misfortune to be stranded at Newark airport, years ago, had to run a gauntlet of rude and unhelpful staff until I could get a return flight home & all I can say is that if the airport is anything like Newark, itself, then I will be glad to never see it again in this Life or the next!

10 Los Angeles, California Los Angeles, California

A mess of roads and concrete rumored to contain homes and businesses

I lived in LA, 26 years born and raised then I moved to neighboring Orange County (way safer). Avoid southern and downtown LA as that area is infected with illegal gangs, criminals, pediophilic homeless people, and drunk idiots. - TopTenHaters

Beautiful women. Best beaches in US. Warm, no snow or hurricanes. Making waves in job market with high pay. +++ - tjkk

Filthadelphia homes the Third Circuit Court of Appeals for NJ, PA, DE and VI which is one below SCOTUS the Supreme Court of the United States. They are the reason the people, children and families of the State of New Jersey and Delaware are treated so badly. Further all corporate civil actions and liable which are lawsuits including Title 18 Section '1983 Lawsuits' over Civil and Human Rights are Appealed to the 3rd Circuit which is the reason people are hurt by corporations who according to the Delaware Corporate Registration Pages are the 'Tiffany of Incorporations'.

13 Anchorage, Alaska

Why is Anchorage on this list? I live here and I love it here! The thing that disappoints me is when people always say that it is so cold. I know it can be cold here, but that's only for about five months in the winter. In the winter it snows A LOT, but this year for 2014, it still hasn't snowed yet (It's late November, and it usually starts snowing in early October! ). But for Spring, Summer, and Autumn, it is so beautiful. The grass turns bright green, the forests are the greenest ever, it it reaches up to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and that's pretty hot for an average temperature in this location (Fairbanks, which is also on this list, reaches up to 100 degrees! No lie there). Anchorage is no boring at all, we have two zoos, and our own local indoor waterpark, which I heard is one of the biggest indoor waterparks! We have malls just like in other states, we have fast food, restaurants, stores (like Costco and Walmart), we even have our own special supermarket: Fred Meyer!
Anchorage ...more

True that it can be chilly, at times, but that's what jackets were invented for.
What kind of an idiot said there is not much to do here?
Spectacular hiking, sightseeing, photography, fishing, hunting, kayaking, boating, sailing, bicycling, camping, backpacking, rock climbing, wildlife viewing, gold panning, anthropology, ice climbing, cross-country skiing, botany, dirt-bike riding, astronomy, geology, and just plain exploring the most amazing natural landscape on the planet.
If all you want to do is sit on your butt playing video games, what difference does it make where you are?

Seriously. Anchorage is a great place man. What has the lower 49 come to with the stereotypes that we have frigid weather all year. Summers in Anchorage have an average high of 76 degrees, and the winter temperatures are only a frigid -13 degrees, which is higher than Minneapolis! Anchorage also has tons of animal conservation centers, and the Alaska zoo, and tons of places to view moose and their babies! I also reccomend the Great North Brewing Company Valley of the Moon Park, and Bear Tooth Theatres. And if that's not enough, you can view the midnight sun. That's right, during the months of June and July, the sun never sets!

Anchorage has rape and stuff

Overrun by Cubans who can't speak English and hate and deride Americans. WithTrump now they think most people who aren't from Mexico or Cuba should be in jail. My family that lives in Miami hate it there and say better not to visit due to the hostile environment - not a good place to retire. Airport is in a bad area use alternatives.

I live in Florida, and love it. However, I have been to Miami, and, on the outside, it looks impressive, but on the inside, its crowded, noisy, and full of crooks. Someone put a boot on my dads car, and he had to pay 90$ to get it off! The person who put it on said we were there for hours and left the plaza. What a liar. We just stopped for a bite to eat!

17 St. Louis, Missouri St. Louis, Missouri

The "deeper" downtown area of St. Louis is dangerous. When coming from a Cardinals game, I could see people digging through trash, walking weirdly as if they were drunk (which they probably most likely were), etc. Downtown St. Louis, in this area particularly, is definitely not safe. Plus the creepy, run down buildings add on to the setting of St. Louis. Makes me shiver every time I have to pass them.

One of the highest murder rates in the country

Should be way higher - ikerevievs

18 San Diego, California

Unfortunately, I was born here and lived here until I was three years old. I then moved elsewhere and it is not too much better, but at least not as OVERRATED as this place. Like on T.V., this place is painted as a surfing beach paradise, but in real life it's a nightmare. Some neighborhoods have extremely high crime rates and violence. The people are shallow, immature, and mean-spirited. There are no indications that you are near military property, like this has to be the only city in the world where military bases are not secured and have barriers. Like I saw at least 3 military bases unmanned, it would be ridiculous if a tourist was arrested for trespassing not knowing this backwards city didn't have military bases with barriers. Also, the cost of living is ridiculous. The only nice houses are in the north county and north side of the city (La Jolla, Caramel Valley), everything else is under-sized, no A/C, and extremely overpriced. Dog owners are douchebags here too and let their ...more - just32

San Diego sucks. Boooring and weird. From dislike to hate for anyone from outside. Make the mistake of thinking San Diego is the great and fun Southern California? Wrong. Nothing to do except drive north to Los Angeles. And get cheap bad drugs by driving to Tijuana in your low end 'TJ' car since it will get stripped. Some crap companies to watch out for with vicious and dangerous people, not the place to go for a new job since that would a big bad mistake. Try Silicon Valley or LA or San Francisco, maybe.

Here's the problems: too sunny for me, pointless beaches that lure you in, pointless mountains, pointless deserts without water, too neutral, boring weather, and people that leave the toilet seat up. - imacg4

Why is this even on the list? Ideal weather, much to do, and much less stressful then LA. San Diego'ss worst neighborhoods aren't even bad enough to be considered ghetto.

22 Cheyenne, Wyoming

Moved to Cheyenne from Los Angeles for an easier life. This was the worst decision I've ever made. This place is mind-numbing. There are no good paying jobs. The cost of living ISN'T what everybody thinks. It's either you live in houses in a nice area, that cost as much as houses do in Los Angeles, or pay significantly cheaper for houses with homeless people meandering about and the smell of that refinery killing respiratory systems. The weather sucks, where it's either winter or Spring/summer. The nicest months last only 4 months, and winters are long, windy, and cold. It's a pain to drive in. Having to keep yourself from sliding and falling, having to clear your windshield of snow, having cars not start because of the temperature, this place is the worst place ever. Nothing to do whatsoever, except Frontier Days, and that's even a stretch to call it "fun".

This I horrible place to live and work. I was there managing the former Frontier Hotel ( Now for old people)

I live in Las Vegas. When others think of Las Vegas they think of gangs, homeless people, strip clubs, and drugs. In reality, it's a pretty nice place. Yes, there are strip clubs and homeless people, but that doesn't mean it's bad. I love it here.

You can go to the zoo and museum so many times. Hordes of teenage moms on welfare. People act ghetto. Blacks & whites are racist against each other. Shootings are so common not all make news. Foreclosures abound. Houses are abandoned. Road construction is neverending. They tear down and rebuils so much nothing historical is left. Businesses leave. No notable musicians come here. Nothing to do on a regular basis but eat out and shop. The mall has had gang shootings. Thugs walk into the street to stop cars. Everyone steals with no remorse. Litter is everywhere. Cops take hours to respond and don't even do that for car accidents without injuries. Women in spiked heels with handicap tags run into the store. People with no tags park in handicap spots as if those spaces are for royalty.

I lived in El Centro. I love going down to Mexicali which is a few minutes from there. Can't put my finger on it but I actually liked it there.

37 New Orleans, Louisiana

When you have to put a cage around your air conditioner to keep the thugs from stealing the copper pipes, you know it's a bad place. Katrina was a gift from God because it allowed people who were too poor to move the opportunity to get out of a multigenerational trap.

Talk about a sewer! Dirty, high crime rate, decadent, the only good thing there is the food!

It really not that bad if you don't live their you shouldn't comment anything bad at all.

New Orleans is not dirty, it's just the crime rates might be a little high.

42 Long Beach, California

I come to live with my uncle in Long Beach, California during the summer. I can't say it terrible, but it's okay.

43 Hell, Michigan

There is such thing, I was on a travel channel show called extreme towns, there's a restaurant that has some very spicy wings, and a Halloween themed ice cream shop, and a gift shop

Kinda sounds like buffalo wings

48 Anaheim, California

Beautiful women abound, too bad they don't like people passing thru. Otherwise blah. Everyone knows Disney World, home of the child eating alligators and terror, is better.

They got Disneyland

Disneyland STINKS!

They took one thing away from Disneyland... TOWER OF TERROR :( - ThemeParkChasers

49 San Bernardino, California

Home of terror. High schools force students to write the Holocaust was faked. Open terrorist not only sat on anti-terror committee but was food inspector for San Bernardino public schools. San Bernardino Police have many charges and convictions for severe televised abuse to people before the terror attack and also run the prison with $1 Billion dollars in lawsuits by federal government against them for severe torture to inmates in the prison the Sheriff's Office and police run which has been rated the worst and most dangerous in the US including to people put in for minor victimless infractions.. Gangs roam free and people need to watch out for those also.

San Bernardino has had one of the worst reputations for being a dangerous place to avoid for decades.

A lot of tiny flies in san bernardino or a lot of crimes - SpencerJC

50 Omaha, Nebraska

Home of the worst child terror, torture and government cover up in history - the Franklin Scandal. Senator DeCamp and (Murdered) CIA Director Bill Colby broke the scandal so big they're still covering up today - corruption and child terror (US Departments of Children and Families are actually the old unconstitutional star chamber courts abducting and child trafficking over 400,000 abducted US children at any given time - evil. Continuing from Clinton's ASFA and SSACT Title IV-E federal money for child sex trafficking to torture and severely abuse and psychotropically drug children to make them mentally ill for life - EVIL. TRUE TODAY.

Why is this on the list? This city is awesome!

No way! Omaha's great! It might not be big or fancy, and yes it has it's bad parts, but overall it's a nice city.
