icon May 29 - Americaís dirtiest city is revealed ó and itís not NYC or anywhere near the north
 

 
Do you think New Yorkís filthy sidewalks, gross subway cars and rat infestations make it Americaís dirtiest city? Youíre in for quite a surprise.

A recent study by LawnStarter has crowned Houston, Texas, as the nationís dirtiest city ó bumping Newark, New Jersey from the top spot.

New York City, despite its notorious grime, didnít even crack the top 10. It landed in 12th place. While the Big Apple dodged the title of dirtiest, itís still grappling with its trash and pest problems.

Houstonís new dubious honor stems from its terrible air quality, infrastructure woes and a staggering number of pests invading homes.

LawnStarterís sister site PestGnome pulled data showing Houston has the worst cockroach problem, with the city crawling with the creepy critters.

Itís not just Houston; southern cities seem to be a haven for cockroaches. San Antonio, Texas and Tampa, Florida, join Houston in the top three for cockroach infestations.

If cockroaches arenít your nightmare, steer clear of Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore. These cities top the list for rodent-infested homes.

Despite Californiaís hefty spending on cleaning efforts, several of its cities still rank poorly. San Bernardino, notorious as the ďarmpitĒ of California, ranks fourth dirtiest due to atrocious air quality.

Riverside and Ontario, also in the LA metro area, share this dismal air status, now plagued by pollution-heavy warehouses that have replaced orange groves and vineyards.

San Francisco, however, shines as a cleaner gem in California. With a $72.5 million street cleaning spree in 2019 and an additional $16.7 million budget in 2023, itís among the cleaner half of US cities.

But this doesnít account for the rising homeless and drug epidemic facing the city.

Dirty air isnít the only issue ó drinking water contamination is rampant in the southwest. Except for Salt Lake City, every major southwest city violated the Safe Drinking Water Act in 2020. Las Vegas, ranking 19th dirtiest overall, has the most unsafe water in the region.

Ohioans have a particular knack for littering cigarette butts. With five Ohio cities boasting the highest share of smokers, the state is battling an onslaught of discarded cigarettes, despite local campaigns urging residents to kick the habit.

Surprisingly, many of the cleanest cities are coastal, with Virginia Beach topping the list.

However, being near water isnít a cleanliness guarantee ó Fremont, California, and Winston-Salem, North Carolina, also rank among the most pristine cities despite their inland locations.

I see they mentioned roaches as a part of the criteria. After living in the South for a decade plus, roaches aren't ALWAYS a sign being dirty. Hot & humid conditions almost guarantee a few roaches. Especially since I moved outside the city. Them sh1ts HUGE out here and they fly. Any tropical or close climate means you gone see some "water bugs".

You think Houston and mob ties are republicans ? You better look at the cities they name in the south and youíll see what they have in common. Majority black, ran by democrats and crime ridden.
Ran by Democrats is a racist dog whistle. The Red States can't even figure out how to pay taxes and stop the relatively tame opioid crisis.

Thank God they aren't in charge of any major urban centers

People have been flocking to Florida and Texas for years now. Not sure where you been, but that's the trend. Sorry if it hurts your feelings. Toughen up, little guy.

We pay your states taxes. If we weren’t cleaning up the mess of those poorly ran borderline Third World country status of anywhere GOP ran we could take care of our own state better.

And here’s a bonus question who do you think got rid of mental health services? It wasn’t the democrats. That’s where the homeless problem comes from.. that and our amazing weather
