This Massachusetts City is Now Being Called the ‘Ugliest’ City in the State
There is no city or town in Massachusetts that wants to have this distinction. Nor is there any city or town anywhere that wants to be called this. But unfortunately, it had to go to some place in the Bay State.
The popular travel publication 'Alot' recently released a list of the ugliest cities in each state. The publication took input from residents from these cities through websites like 'Niche' and 'Reddit' to help provide them with the city that gets branded with this particular distinction in each state. So, what city in Massachusetts is the absolute ugliest?
At risk of city shaming, we are obligated to let you know that you will have to make your way to the eastern region of the state, in a suburb of Boston, there is the city, Brockton. Brockton is the ugliest city in Massachusetts.
Is it that aesthetically displeasing? Here's what 'Alot' had to say about why it was picked as Massachusetts 'ugliest' city:
The only architecturally interesting part of Brockton, Massachusetts, is City Hall. The rest of the buildings are organized like a budget version of Paris with all of the straight-edged roads, squished townhouses, and a famous library. At least the city is home to a couple of boxing champions; otherwise, it’d be nothing special.
Referred to as the “City of Champions,” Brockton actually has quite a few fun festivals to attend throughout the year despite its lackluster exterior. Plus, the acuity set a world record in 2010 for having 872 people wearing Santa Hats wearers in one place at one time. That counts for something, right?
A budget version of Paris? Yikes. Harsh terminology. But let's be honest, it could be a lot worse. For instance, they listed Alabama's ugliest city, Birmingham. A refinery is the picture they picked for that. So, at least we're not Birmingham, Alabama.
