Behold America's Worst Cities

24/7 Wall Street has released a real bummer of a list entitled, “the 50 worst cities to live in.”

As it does each year, the financial news site woke up on the wrong side of the bed and analyzed data on a bunch of stuff people hate: crime, poor health, lack of education, joblessness, high housing prices, and crappy infrastructure. Then it compiled a list of cities no one wants to live in.

The good news is that no California cities ranked in the top (err worst) 10. Hooray? Only a handful of Golden State locales made it into the top 25.

Below is a list of the 15 worst cities to live in according to 24/Wall St. Check out the full report, list, and methodology here. And don’t shoot the messenger, ok?
