i think "America's Toilet" is actually somewhere in Jersey. As for NYC, i think most people that live in/near it just call it The City. but i imagine the same happens in/around other large cities. But NYC is the most deserving.

One could have so much fun with a list like this. "Hey - I think they forgot FILTHLAND."

Unfortunately for me, I am rather fond of New York and I wince whenever I see it taking shots for the team.

Give us a city that we can all agree sucks! I'm thinking New Haven, Connecticut or Central Falls, Rhode Island. Anyone?
