What's the crappiest little town you've been to/through?

I've done a lot of traveling, as have a lot of members on the board. My question to you is what's the crappiest little town you've been to/through?

There are a few that stand out for me: Opp, Alabama; Victorville, California; Socorro, New Mexico; and the worst town I've ever been to is El Paso, Texas. What a dump.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Tough call....
Hopkins Park, as Ryan and Dirtbiker already mentioned.
Portions of New Orleans (not all, some neighborhoods were really nice even after Katrina)
Scummit up on the list

Naples isn't that bad. I lived there for nearly 2 years. Its dirty, but its a fun town with character. Can't say that about 2 out of the 3 above. On further consideration, Hopkins park FTW for worst shithole I've ever been through.
