The 4th Most Miserable City in America

Synopsis

In 2019, Business Insider put out an article listing the 50 most miserable cities in America based on census data. My hometown of Passaic, NJ was listed as number 4. ‬ What Business Insider fails to realize is that these clickbait lists become dangerous leverage for towns like mine and the others on the list that are already under-resourced and always at risk of being gentrified. ‪ I created this as an homage to my city and the every day sights that I find beautiful or hold memories for me. ‬Business Insider can pretend to measure misery all they want but we are more than a clickbait joke of an article. We are Passaic.
