This is a question Rubbish Towns

I once went to Basildon. It was closed, I got chased by a bunch of knuckle-dragged yobs until I was lost in a maze of concrete alleyways and got food poisoning off pie. Tell us about the awful places you've visited or have your home.

Thanks to SpankyHanky for the suggestion

I'm fully aware of the shortcomings of my own home town, although I'm immensely proud of it too. But Frankfurt, FFS what a monstrosity. I spent an evening there a few months ago. I thought I'd pass the evening in a bar, idly chatting to the locals as I have done on many occasions the world over.
BOY was I wrong!
After trudging in the drizzle from the station some of the first things I encountered were; people shooting up between parked cars, some of their friends spark out in doorways under sleeping bags and every second building was either a brothel or a peepshow. Classy! I eventually ended up in a little corner bar where I got into a 'discussion' with a lairy local guy because I was English, and therefore responsible for the eyesore that was Frankfurt, all that bombing y'know. I explained that by his own logic HE was responsible for the perceived shiteness of MY home town.
"How can that be?, I've been to London and it's a great place" he argued.
"Ah, but you see I'm not from London, and the Luftwaffe made my home town what it is today" I replied.
"Where are you from?" He asked in quite a belligerent tone.


Belligerent to sheepish in three syllables

My home town outshited Frankfurt AND bitchslapped Johnny Foreigner all in one evening.
No wonder I'm proud.

Is it true that our shimmering beacon of all that is great and good home city
is twinned with Dresden??? Some fucker told me this once - but they may have been talking bollocks...

If its true I bet those get togethers are a laugh a fucking minute...

I'm quite fond of Frankfurt

EDIT - I meant to reply to the OP.
I like Dresden too though

You're right Spanks...

And they both shared the common happy award of being the two most bombed-to-buggery towns during WW2

Ironically, our old Drummer used to go out with a girl from Dresden.

'Bombed to buggery'
Yep, both cities were bombed but the casualties were somewhat disproportionate - 656 in Coventry and between 35,000 and 100,000 (estimated) in Dresden.

Dresden's quite lovely.

Frankfurt's really nice
It just happens that the area around the train station is the red light district/smack alley. Apparently the tramps and junkies are encouraged to stay around there so at least Social Services know where they are.
