A recent survey found that Philadelphia placed fourth in a ranking of large cities in which residents find their neighbors most annoying.

Dallas took the top spot as the city with the most irksome neighbors, with Miami and Austin, TX, rounding out the top three places. New York and Los Angeles placed fifth and sixth respectively.

Improvenet, an online home improvement resource, conducted the poll in August. The company surveyed 2,500 people from 25 of the largest cities across the nation.

Respondents from the high ranking cities attributed their annoyance to issues stemming from loud music, dirty yards, tobacco smoke, and much more. 

The poll indicated that Philadelphia ranked as the worst city in loud adult voices, parking issues, and ugly landscaping. It was also the runner-up for the prevalence of general grumpiness, boundary disputes, ugly homes, and missing mail. 

The cities with the least annoying neighbors are Atlanta, Portland, OR, and Minneapolis.

Earlier this year, Philadelphia was ranked third worst in financial health in the country and, in 2017, it placed No. 139 in happiness out of 150 American cities.
