It’s been a good year for America in 2015.
However, for some cities in America, there isn’t a lot to be thankful for. We wanted to explore which cities in the greatest country in the world have the least to be thankful for this year.

  1. Newark, New Jersey
  2. Hartford, Connecticut

How do you decide if a place is not thankful or not?

In order to rank this year’s least thankful cities, we had to determine what criteria people don’t have to be thankful for.

How we crunched the numbers

  • High unemployment rates
  • Low incomes
  • Low home prices
  • Few of sunny days a year
