    It's not the worst, but it's far from the best.

Entire neighborhoods have been abandoned and are now in a state of total ruin save for the crackheads that have taken shelter in some of the abandoned homes.

    Another reason why I believe Detroit is the worst city is because some of the people there have voiced their opinion that the rest of the country should bail them out.
    The way I see it, they made their bed, now they must lie in it.



    That's cold.

    I was thinking L.A. but its got some nice areas like the South Bay and downtown has been somewhat renovated so I would have to go with Detroit.

    The Cass Corridor, 8 Mile Road and a lot of crack-heads.

    That was my point.

    No one lives in Houston.

    Seriously, with a few exceptions like the Heights or off the SW Freeway there are very few places to live here.

    People typically live in the outlying cities like Katy, Woodlands or even Pearland and then drive in.

    Anyway which of these is the worst US city in terms of crime, economy, housing, general livability etc etc etc

    Basically which city should be known as America's toilet?
    Well, not having been to every city, I can't really say for sure, but I've seen some pretty bad-looking pictures of Detroit, so that's my vote. Some parts of Detroit look like a war zone or something!
