    What are the worst cities you've ever been in?

    I have to say

    1) Chicago, IL - I just hated it

    2) Detroit, MI - Not my cup of tea

    3) Gary IN - I didn't have a bulletproof car

    4) Philadelphia, PA - Well if I liked rats the size of cats I would have loved it

    5) New York, NY - Too many rude people


    Disclaimer-- These may be very nice cities in certain areas, but not the areas I've worked in.

    It would have to be between Detroit and any city in Louisiana.

    I've always enjoyed Boston.

    I was about 12 when in DC, and I knew then it was a shi*hole I'd never go back too.

    Although those cities were the scariest, I have the most trouble when I am working in some little town in Colorado or Wyoming. It seems like fellows wearing dusters and carved out of ham always want to string me up. I seem to find myself avoiding fisticuffs most often with bored locals in rural locations, and crackheads when I detect skid row in the city.

    Happy freakin' new year!

    Agree 100%

    I have to work in Detroit every so often and I lived just south of New Orleans one year prior to and 2 years after Katrina. New Orleans would have to be #1 on my list as it is a total craphole!

    Currently I live in Cleveland...which so happens to be #2 on my list!

    New York...
    A lot of nice restaurants, but you have to put up with loud and obnoxious New York city people ... Have never been to Newark or Philadelphia, but would guess that they are as bad or worse...
    New Orleans(chocolate city) was an armpit before the Hurricane, and the same type of people are still there so I would guess it has not gotten better..
    Atlanta,,, been run by hustlers and thugs since the mid 70's..

    Have typically had good luck in most Midwestern cities including Chicago. Seem to be more honest and down to earth folks in the Midwest... Gpurs...

    Stateside, Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Drove through there in the late 60's during cotton harvest. The whole town was in a fog of burning cotton hulls, and the streets were littered with trash and and a lot of angry looking dudes standing around on every street corner. Out of the country would be Tripoli, Libya, the area called "old town". Filthy with fly covered raw garbage and smelled like feces! Not a vacation spot to say the least. Monty

    Re: What are the worst cities you've ever been in?

    Anchorage, 1979 looking for work at high noon, lunch traffic, guys stop try to pull me in to their car!! cabbie behind(big bear of a guy) saw me fighting & came to my rescue. took me to pawn shop & bought me a pistol & taught me how to use it. so it was the worst & the best all rolled up in to one. that was during the height of the "oil boom" way to much $$, drugs & alcohol flying around. I would hope things are different now. give me the back country any day!!

    Mamabear, I'm glad you made it through that ordeal safely.

    Back Country for me too.

    One thing I know from all my travels, is that cities have too much pavement, and too many people.

    Inkster Michigan. Every nearby park covered in broken glass. Giant swastika painted on the entrance to the park down the street. About every forth house has been vacant for years. Guy pulls into a 7-11, points a shot gun out his window and fires two bear slugs at the cashier. He missed both times. No work to be found. I had to work at a burger king for $4.00 an hour. I never have met so many part time drunks and full time alcoholics in my life. This place was more depressing then when I lived in Brooklyn NY. I'll never go back there.
