NYC Dirtiest U.S. City?

My Fox NY, September 18, 2012

A recent survey by Travel + Leisure magazine ranked New York the dirtiest American city.

The online poll of 50,000 people found that rats, funky odors and trash heaps were the main factors for the dubious distinction.

If there isn’t enough dirt for you, it also “won” the survey for being the loudest and rudest city in the country. {snip}

35 American cities were rated.

New York City did receive additional number one rankings, for more positive features including theaters, stylish locals, diversity, classical music options and luxury stores.
