For the second year in a row, New York City ranks among the three worst-run cities in America, according to a WalletHub report. A Connecticut city also earned the dubious distinction of making the 10 worst-run list. The study created a total "Quality of Services" score based on 35 metrics from debt to crime to air pollution and unemployment, as well as per-capita budget, to determine the rankings of 150 cities, including financial stability, health, safety, economy, infrastructure and pollution. Here are the 10 worst- and best-run cities respectively, in reverse order, according to the WalletHub report. Click here to see the full list and learn more about the methodology.
