Five of New York State's biggest cities are among the worst-run in America. Out of the 150 cities, WalletHub studied for its list of "best-run cities", no New York Cities landed in the top 100. As a matter of fact, the highest-ranked on the list was Syracuse at 119 out of 150. It was all downhill from there. The other four cities were ranked pretty badly, especially New York City, which came in at 148 out of 150.

WalletHub compared the operating efficiency of 150 of the largest U.S. cities to reveal which among them are managed best. We constructed a “Quality of Services” score made up of 38 metrics grouped into six service categories, which we then measured against the city’s per-capita budget.
