A recent poll found that just a third of New Yorkers say they are truly happy and actually like living in the Empire State. This news follows another survey, which found 3 in 4 New Yorkers have reached their "stress tipping point."

There is much to complain about when you are a resident of New York because it's so expensive to live here. On the flipside, we are largely spared from extreme weather events like wildfires and EF5 tornadoes. Other perks include a decent educational system, our roads aren't a huge mess, and our tourist business is booming.

But, still, that silver lining isn't enough for some people, and that is why some cities and towns are far more miserable than others.

Let me remind you before you read further, THIS BRAND IS NOT CALLING THESE CITIES OR TOWNS MISERABLE. This is simply a reporting of a list created by Road Snacks. If you have a bone to pick with us, you're directing your outrage at the wrong person.

And also, you're most likely from one of these 10 cities.

New York's Most Miserable Cities

According to Road Snacks, these are New York's 10 most miserable cities because apparently everything is going wrong there.

As for what determines how miserable a city is, Road Snacks compared 169 cities using Census data and other scientific stuff from other "legitimate" sources. They looked into divorce rates, commute times, cost of living, and other statistics to whip up this "fun" new list.

In the end, these 10 cities were deemed to be the gloomiest in New York State.

Raise your hand if you are shocked that Central New York barely made an appearance on this list. Makes you wonder how much worse it is for these other cities and towns.

In fact, CNY is among the happier places to live in New York - if you can believe it.
