I thought since there was a discussion about our favorite cities in the world, it might be useful to discuss our least favorite cities. Keep in mind, I know this is entirely subjective . I fully realize I'm opening myself to endless criticism in doing so, so I'll add this: #1 and 2 are so far above the others in cities I HATE that the last three are just cities I have mostly not enjoyed. I've only once been to both Las Vegas and Los Angeles, so that anyone who feels differently can rightfully criticize me since I didn't first love Venice or Rome on my first trips. Still, I doubt you'll convince me...
But I would respond to the possible critique that I hate what LV and LA represent because I think that is what is the worst of American culture. So the last three are just subjective decisions based on extensive experience, while the first two were based on what I simply couldn't stand in one trip in each of the two places. I don't like a culture of beauty, decadence, and superficiality. Snobbish, I know, but still...
LEAST FOR ME FROM WORST TO LESS HORRIBLE:
1) Las Vegas
2) Los Angeles
3) New York
