The "ugliest" city in New York State shocked me. Does it surprise you?

Alot Travel recently released their list of "The Ugliest Cities in Each State."

Alot Travel didn't go into great detail about why each city made the list but noted "lack of maintenance or just poor design choices," made each choice an "eyesore."

Places that made the list include Detroit, Michigan; Baltimore, Maryland; Panama City, Florida; Nome, Alaska; Reno, Nevada; Hazard, Kentucky; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Brockton, Massachusetts; New Haven, Connecticut; Birmingham, Alabama; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and Memphis, Tennessee.

The website notes while the places on the list "may be great places to live, these cities won't be winning beauty contests anytime soon!"
