Reasons Why Amsterdam Was Named New York's "Worst"

The poverty rate in Amsterdam is 23.8 percent, as opposed to the state average of 13.5 percent.

The median home value in New York State is $340,600 but in Amsterdam, the average of a home is just $92,000.


The average household income in Amsterdam is $43,164, which is over $22,000 less than the average household income in New York State.

How List Was Formed

24/7 Wall Street looked into information from the Census Bureau, the FBI, and the CDC to create a weighted index of 22 measures to identify the worst cities, with at least 8,000 residents, to live in every state.

Warning: All Should "Avoid" Traveling To This City In New York State

"The measures used in the index fall into one of three broad categories: economy, community, and overall quality of life," 24/7 Wall Street states. "In all but a few cities and towns on this list, incomes are lower than they are across the state as a whole, and residents are more likely to live below the poverty line."
