Worst Towns in USA


The Top Ten

1 Detroit, MI

Detroit is like a modern ghost town. There are so many run down buildings and landmarks all covered in graffiti, and the crime rate is really high. Even in the downtown area, there are so many vacant skyscrapers. It's such a depressing place to live in.

Two things.
#1. How can Washington, DC be a bad place?
#2. I heard it's bad in Detroit. I can't believe it's in Michigan. I have cousins who live in Michigan & I don't want them going there. I'm glad they live in a place in Michigan that isn't Detroit.

4 New Orleans, LA
5 Chicago, IL

Chicago is not that bad, they got some pretty good food and music along with some epic architecture, but it's the gangs and corrupt politicians that make Chicago look bad

Chicago is the best city in the universe! People think that there are so many crimes but guess what... there are even more in new york an los angeles

Truly a cess pit. Large portions of the city are in ruin. Downtown and tourist areas are nice enough, but there are so many neglected places in the city. Too bad. Lots of murders, crime, and corruption in "Crook County" as well. Over 200 homicides so far for 2013!

I live in alamogordo and I can't wait to get out, people are closed minded, and yes its true almost everybody here with money is on the sex offender list... Nobody cares, the school systems are... This place sucks.

The most powerful and respected man in town is a convicted pedophile.
