Question of the Day: Dirty Old Town


Tourists! You can't live with 'em and you can't ... oh, you know.  A new survey reveals visitors to the Big Apple think it needs a Big Clean Up, rating NYC as the dirtiest in the nation (oh, as well as the loudest and rudest).  Gee, thanks.  Problem is:  residents think the town is pretty grimy, too, ranking it behind only Baltimore as Most Filthy.  So our question is:  do you mind?  Do dirt and vermin make the Big Apple less, uh, appealing?  Share a song with your sentiments here.
