Trulia's Blog recently ranked the most sinful and saintly cities in American using the seven deadly sins (lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and vanity, or pride) as their guide. Staffer Felipe Chacon takes a look at their list and explains exactly how the sins were used to create different metrics.
Since the list was in honor of Mardi Gras, the most sinful city should not come as a surprise:
New Orleans still reigns as king of Mardi Gras. With nearly three times the national rate of adult entertainment establishments and twice the number gambling establishments per household, it scores highly in lust and greed. Additionally, above average rates of smoking, binge- and heavy-drinking and obesity, as well as high incidents of violent crime make the Crescent City a great place for those looking to explore gluttony and wrath.
